Live At The Matrix is a live album by The Great Society with Grace Slick.
It was recorded at The Matrix in San Francisco in 1966.
This brings together two earlier released live albums by Great Society – Conspicuous Only In Its Absence and Vol. 2: Collectors Item – How It Was. To add to the confusion, this combined album has also been released under the name of Collector’s Item From the San Francisco Scene.
