Mandrake's Discography

Mandrake's was located at 10th Street and University Avenue in Berkeley. The club opened, in what had been a pool hall, in late 1968 or early 1969. The main musical emphasis was on blues and jazz but rock groups did perform at the venue including Joy of Cooking, Commander Cody, Loading Zone, Grootna, Notes From The Underground, AB Skhy, Cleveland Wrecking Company and the Shades Of Joy. Some early New Riders Of The Purple Sage shows, with Jerry Garcia on pedal steel were played at the club in 1969. Mandrake's closed in 1974.
