If there is a band that I love more than the Dead, it’s Jerry Garcia Band. The laid back, head-banging grooves paired with some of the best Garcia guitar work make recordings like this essential listening.
This newly mastered AUD/SBD matrix is a one commenter on eTree put it, a desert island JGB disc. The line-up for the show is Jerry Garcia on guitar and vocals, John Kahn on bass, Melvin Seals on keys, David Kemper on drums, Jaclyn LaBranch on vocals and Gloria Jones on vocals.
Some of the highlights from the show include one of the best versions of “Sugaree” you’ll ever hear and an outstanding “Get Out of My Life Woman.”
