Dozens of new Jerry Garcia and Grateful Dead soundboards have been popping up on eTree this week that have never circulated. It’s one thing for a soundboard recording to have never circulated, but it’s another thing for any recording of a show to have never been circulated.
This particular show was at the Keystone in Berkeley, CA. Jerry and Merl released a live album from the Keystone pulled from two shows earlier in the summer of 1973.
Jerry and Merl are on fire, the entire show. It’s a beautiful sounding recording that you will want to listen to again and again.
Here is the setlist:
When I Paint My Masterpiece
The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down
I Second That Emotion
One Kind Favor
Sunshine Of My Life*
The Harder They Come
* Sunshine of My Life is a Stevie Wonder tune that Jerry and Merl only covered once.
Here is the lineup for the evening of 10/11/1973:
Jerry Garcia – guitar, vocals
Merl Saunders – keyboards, vocals
John Kahn – bass
Bill Vitt – drums
