3/17/68 Carousel Ballroom - San Francisco, CA

While working on the "Fillmore West 1969-The Complete Recordings" box set, we searched every nook and cranny of the vault for interesting contextual items for the release, as well as for material to include on the bonus CD offered with the box set and the 3-CD compilation. The greatest find amongst our many discoveries was this gem of a show, 3/17/68 at the Carousel Ballroom (the Carousel, of course, later became the Fillmore West). If you like Anthem of the Sun and Dick's Picks Vol. 22 (Lake Tahoe 1968), you will positively LOVE this new release. The sound quality is remarkable for its age, with a nice full mix; it has a song list that is exceptional even for this era of preposterously stunning song lists; and the performances match up with, and at times surpass, the much-lauded Tahoe '68 release.
