The tapes of these shows were given to Keith Godchaux in 1971 by Jerry Garcia to familiarise him with the recent repertoire before joining the band. Keith left the tapes on his parents' houseboat in Alameda, where they stayed for 35 years. The box of tapes was discovered on the houseboat in 2005 and returned to the Grateful Dead vault.

This is a very good selection of material from the earlier days (technically the later part of the earlt days when Pigpen was still alive but Workingman's Dead and American Beauty had been recorded).
