In addition to the countless soundboards that are circulating of the Dead, plenty of Jerry Garcia boards are out there as well. It’s rare a day that an uncirculated Dead, let alone a Jerry Garcia Band soundboard surfaces.
An anonymous source recently uploaded an uncirculated soundboard recording of a 1973 Jerry Garcia and Merl Saunders show to bt.etree.org. The show also features John Kahn on bass and Grateful Dead member Bill Kreutzmann on drums. The show setlist reads as a classic Jerry and Merl show with some of the standard JGB tunes from that era including “One Kind Favor,” “After Midnight,” and “I Second that Emotion” among others. A couple of the songs have been omitted from the soundboard recording, but the recently surfaced board represents an upgrade over other circulating sources from the show.
