Comments Billy is absent - he was sick. This and possibly 12/7/68 are the only known shows where Mickey is the sole drummer. At most a few seconds is missing from the beginnings of Dark Star and Cryptical Envelopment. After "one man gathers what another man spills" in Saint Stephen, Bobby doesn't say anything. It is hard to say how much is missing from the beginning of Bid You Good Night, which might be an encore. After Bid You Good Night someone (Phil?) says "Look around for us next time this weekend. Hey. You see to it - You see to it that we have a place to play out there". They did play in Ohio two more times that weekend. At the Garcia vs. Garcia trial a couple of years ago Phil had to testify and he spoke about this very show! He was asked to date a letter that Jerry had written to Mountain Girl where he mentions a concert in Athens, Ohio. Phil was absolutely positive the letter was from 1968 because they only played in Athens once - on 11/23/68. That was because so many students from Ohio University in Athens came to the show in Columbus on 11/22/68 (a long drive - about 1 1/2 hours or so) that the band decided to go to Athens and put on a free show for them!
