What about another Jerry interview?

Just got this one.
Jerry Garcia interview from 1967.
Jerry was nterviewed at 710 Ashbury, San Francisco, CA by Randy Groeke & Mike Cramer. Date uncertain but probably February or March because it took place when their first album was about to be released (1st album release date was March 17, 1967). Anyway, Groeke was a banjo student of Garcias in the early 60's, when they both lived in the south bay. He and his buddy Cramer simply called Jerry up and arranged to do the interview 'friend to friend'. Besides Jerry and the 2 interviewers, there are bits of Mountain Girl, Bob Weir, Pigpen, and others in the background.
