This has circulated as 5-29-69, though it seems much more likely to be from
the 11th. Deadbase lists Canned Heat & Santana as sharing the billing with
the Dead for the 11th. lists a partial setlist for 5-11-69,
from Dew through Schoolgirl. A radio announcer can briefly be heard
speaking of Canned Heat during the Cryptical Reprise. The guests almost
certainly include multiple percussionists from Santana, their singer briefly
during Lovelight, and some guitar from Carlos Santana, though his
contributions seem low in the mix and infrequent.

The lineage is unknown, although the radio announcers would indicate this
being from a radio broadcast. There are probably several analog
generations, but quality improves towards the end and is listenable. There
is a brief dropout in volume level during the Cryptical Reprise. The first
few notes of Me & My Uncle have been clipped as radio announcers were
talking. The cut at the beginning of Alligator is minor.
