Mickey & the Hartbeats
The Matrix
San Francisco, CA

24 bit 96 kHz audio transfer by Matt Smith

These reels came from Will Boswell.  Back in the early 70's, Peter Kafer lent his reels to Will who dubbed them @ 7.5 ips.  As an aside this was a different time period from the FE 4/71 reels.  Peter obtained his copies from Bill Abrams who had the master reels and have since vanished from the stories i've heard.  So basically we can deduce the most likely lineage of these are MR(Abrams)>R @ 7.5 ips(Kafer)>R @ 7.5 ips(Will Boswell). My buddy Pat Lee scored his from Will and the lineage info is the same except for the extra reel gen as well. There still is some mystery surrounding these shows as for exact lineage and there are a few people who have the same lineage as this but generally, all circulating copies have been sourced with Kafer's reels.  MR(Abrams)>R(Kafer)>R@ 7.5 ips(Will Boswell).
