Garcia Band, Jerry - garcia live vol. 10: may 20th 1990, hilo civic auditorium [2018]
2 CD-Set! Jubiläum! Teil 10 der grandiosen, ungemein beliebten GarciaLive-Reihe von bislang in den Archiven verschollenen, seltene Live-Mitschnitten des charismatischen Grateful Dead-Gitarristen. Das nun veröffentlichte Konzert fand am 20. Mai 1990 auf Hawaii statt, und zwar im Hilo Civic Auditorium. Die Jerry Garcia Band mit einem herausragenden, wunderbar relaxten Gig mit dem musikalischen Fokus auf Dylan-Covers und ein wenig Motown, Reggae und Rock'n Roll. Tolle Setlist! Klasse Aufnahmen! Hervorragender Sound! Abermals ein absolutes Highlight für die Jerry Garcia-Jünger und Deadheads.

Die offizielle Produktbeschreibung:

GarciaLive Volume Ten documents the Jerry Garcia Band’s May 20th, 1990 performance at the Hilo Civic Auditorium in Hawaii. On the heels of a diabetic coma in 1986, Bill Kreutzmann encouraged Jerry to find peace and healing in the pristine blue waters of the Big Island’s reef system. What was initially a hobby became a passion for Garcia as he later publicly advocated for the protection of Hawaii’s natural areas and directed earnings from this show, held in the modest Hilo Civic Center, to The Ocean Recreation Council of Hawaii.
In this relaxed setting complete with leis on stage, it’s no wonder that the music from this show shines so brightly – both in Garcia’s strong vocals and guitar playing but also the joie de vivre setlist spanning some of Jerry’s favorite corners of popular music – Dylan, Motown, Reggae, and Rock & Roll. Spurred on by the ever steady rhythm section of Dave Kemper and John Kahn, the Garcia band this night seemed to pull out all the stops complete with the celestial sounds of Melvin Seals’ organ and the background vocals of Gloria Jones and Jacklyn LaBranch.
The sum of these parts that defined the 1990s Garcia Band sound would make for a magical Sunday night that first kicked off with the Holland-Dozier-Holland favorite “How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You)” followed by an idyllic “They Love Each Other.” Sprinkled in throughout the night are five Dylan covers including powerfully delivered vocals on versions of “Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door,” “Forever Young,” and a positively soaring “Tangled Up In Blue” as the encore. Along the way, covers like “Stop That Train,” “Waiting For A Miracle,” and “Evangeline” ably accent originals like “Deal” and “Run For The Roses.”

1. How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You)

Garcia Band, Jerry - garcia live vol. 2: august 5th 1990, greek theatre [2013]
2 CD-Set! Zweiter Teil der neuen GarciaLive-Serie! Enthalten ist ein wunderbares Konzert vom 5. August 1990 aus dem Greek Theatre in Berkeley/California mit dem "Classic Line-Up" der Jerry Garcia Band. Gast bei den ersten beiden Stücken des zweiten Sets ist Banjo-Virtuose Bela Fleck! Die Setlist ist voll mit spannenden Coverversionen, wie etwa Bob Dylan's "Tangled up in blue", Los Lobos' "Evangeline", Bob Marley's "Stop that train", Van Morrison's "And it stoned me", Little Milton's "That's what love will make you do", "Tears of rage" von The Band, und viele mehr. Großartig!

Aus der Original-Produktbeschreibung:
GarciaLive Volume Two captures the classic latter-era lineup of the Jerry Garcia Band in the very familiar surroundings of the Greek Theatre in Berkeley, CA. Recorded during a fruitful period for the band, which has resulted in two previous releases (Jerry Garcia Band and How Sweet It Is), this show features a guest appearance by acclaimed banjo player Bela Fleck to kick off the second set with a fiery rendition of "Midnight Moonlight" and an otherworldly adventure on the Jimmy Cliff classic, "The Harder They Come."
The Jerry Garcia Band made use of their home turf in 1990, performing throughout the Bay Area an astounding 19 times in that year, including multiple runs at their adopted home of the Warfield Theatre. Jerry and the band, including longtime cohort John Kahn on bass, Melvin Seals on organ and David Kemper on drums, as well as “The Girls,” Jaclyn LaBranch and Gloria Jones on backing vocals, stretched out in the summer sun on this early August afternoon show. Highlights, beside the obvious fireworks created on stage with Fleck, include a lilting “Stop That Train” and a bouncy “My Sisters and Brothers.” But on this day, Garcia clearly had the Bard on his mind, lending his deft touch and heart wrenching vocals to Dylan chestnuts “Forever Young” and “Tears of Rage” before sending the crowd home with a bounce in their step after a mesmerizing “Tangled Up in Blue” show closer. Once again, this performance cements Dylan’s own sentiments that nobody had a touch with his songs quite like Garcia.

Lineup:
Jerry Garcia - Guitar, Vocals
John Kahn - Bass
Melvin Seals - Organ
Jaclyn LaBranch - Vocals
Gloria Jones - Vocals
David Kemper - Drums

Garcia Band, Jerry - garcia live vol. 7: november 8th 1976, sophie's, palo alto [2016]
2 CD-Set! Siebter Teil der großartigen GarciaLive-Serie mit einem neuen, bislang in den Archiven verschwundenen, tollen Mitschnitt. Die Show, eingespielt mit dem berühmten Line-Up, neben Jerry Garcia, mit John Kahn, Ronn Tutt sowie Donna und Keith Godchaux, stammt aus dem Sophie's im californischen Palo Alto vom 8. November 1976.

Hier die offizielle Produktbeschreibung:

GarciaLive returns with a new installment! GarciaLive Volume Seven showcases the Jerry Garcia Band’s November 8th, 1976 performance at Sophie’s in Palo Alto, California. Recorded by Betty Cantor-Jackson, the original master reels were only recently re-discovered, along with a few other reels dubbed the “Houseboat Tapes”, and have been remastered for this release. It was the year of this recording that Donna Jean and Keith Godchaux first joined up with the Jerry Garcia Band. Their addition, along with Ron Tutt on drums and bassist John Kahn, helped form what would be one of the most durable lineups of the Garcia Band. In fact, earlier that year Garcia commented “I haven’t been as happy with any little performing group since Old And In The Way in terms of feeling ‘this is really harmonious, this is what I want to hear.’”
That harmonious vibe is especially present on this recording as well. Throughout the course of the evening, the band deftly melds gospel, rock, soul, and reggae to form their quintessential mid-70’s sound. As one astute critic pointed out, “More than any other Garcia band this one allows him room to run through all his guitar styles, often within a single song.” From the opening notes of “The Way You Do The Things You Do”, the band lock into a relaxed, but confident groove with Kahn & Tutt’s deep pocket providing the foundation for Jerry & Keith’s melodic exploration and rounded out by Donna Jean’s soulful harmonies. The Hunter/Garcia penned “Mission in the Rain” and Dylan’s “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door” are particularly poignant and soulful while songs like Peter Rowan’s “Midnight Moonlight” and Hank Ballard’s “Tore Up Over You” provide the sparks bringing balance to the evening. A 22+ minute “Don’t Let Go” stands out not only for its length, but for its exercise in dynamics which further showcases Garcia’s comfort not only with the band, but the freedom found in playing smaller rooms tailor-made for they type of music he was looking to create.

Die komplette Setlist:

Disc 1:
1.) The Way You Do The Things You Do
2.) Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door
3.) After Midnight
4.) Who Was John?
5.) Mission in the Rain
6.) Stir It Up

Disc 2:
1.) Midnight Moonlight
2.) Tore Up Over You
3.) Friend of the Devil
4.) Don’t Let Go
5.) Strange Man
6.) Stop That Train
7.) Ride Mighty High

Garcia Band, Jerry - garcia live vol. 8: november 23rd 1991, bradley center [2017]
2 CD-Set! Teil 8 der großartigen GarciaLive-Reihe - und auch dieser bislang in den Archiven verschwundene, prächtige Mitschnitt ist wieder einmal ein wahres Fest für die Jerry Garcia-Gemeinde und die Deadheads. Aufgenommen wurde diese Show im Bradley Center von Milwaukee/WI am 2. November 1991 in der Besetzung Jerry Garcia - guitar & vocals, John Kahn - bass, Melvin Seals - keyboards, David Kemper - drums, Jacklyn LaBranch - vocals und Gloria Jones - vocals.

Aus der offiziellen Produktbeschreibung:

GarciaLive Volume Eight presents the Jerry Garcia Band's November 23rd, 1991 performance at the Bradley Center in Milwaukee, WI. The Fall ’91 tour as a whole is widely regarded as one of Garcia’s finest and this particular Saturday evening serves as a further testament to the legend. Fans in attendance at the Bradley Center braved an intense snowstorm and the audience's palpable energy and enthusiasm was a likely catalyst for this spirited performance. Keyboardist Melvin Seals summarized the group nicely stating "That was the magic band. It’s not that the other scenarios didn’t work out but once we got to that level of the band with (drummer) Dave Kemper, John Kahn, Jerry, myself and the singers, Jackie (LaBranch) and Gloria (Jones) we all knew we had something special. That was the band. And magic they made! As Dean Budnick notes in the release’s liner note essay, "If at times the Grateful Dead could be something of a turgid Russian novel: convoluted and labyrinthine yet mostly rewarding, the Jerry Garcia Band during this era was more of an Elizabethan sonnet: breezy, emotive and luminous.” The tone is set immediately with a melodious “Cats Under The Stars” opening the evening to the sheer delight of the crowd. Playful and buoyant versions of “Lay Down Sally”, “Ain’t No Bread in the Breadbox”, and “Deal”, along with an incendiary “Tangled Up In Blue” build into peak after peak. The marvelous evening is balanced by soul-soaked performances of “That Lucky Old Sun”, “My Sisters and Brothers” and a positively show-stopping take on The Manhattan’s “Shining Star” which showcases Jerry and the girls singing in beautiful harmony. As the Garcia Band graduated into arenas it could be expected that some of the intimacy might be lost, but on this cold, snowy evening in Milwaukee, they managed to make the Bradley Center feel cozy and warm.

Die komplette Setlist:

Disc: 1
1. Cats Under The Stars
2. They Love Each Other
3. Lay Down Sally
4. The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down
5. Reuben And Cherise

Garcia Band, Jerry, Bob Weir and Rob Wasserman - fall 1989: the long island sound [2013]
6 CD Box-Set! Historisches für die Deadheads und Jerry Garcia-Jünger - alles bislang unveröffentlicht: Die neue 6 CD-Box enthält zwei komplette Konzerte der berühmten Herbsttour, die die Jerry Garcia Band 1989 zusamen mit Grateful Dead-Weggefährte Bob Weir und Rob Wasserman (als Acoustic-Duo) absolvierte. Enthalten sind die Shows vom 5. September 1989 aus dem Hartford Civic Center in Hartfort/CT und vom 6. September 1989 aus demNassau Coliseum in Uniondale/NY. Weir & Wasserman spielten jeweils den Support (CD 1 und CD 4), die Jerry Garcia Band war der Mainact. Die Konzerte und die Setlist sind phänomenal. Über 5 1/2 Stunden Musik! Sehr schön auch das traditionsbewusste Cover, das folgerichtig aus der prominenten "Sranley Mouse"-Schmiede stammt.

Hier die Original-Produktbeschreibung:

Fall 1989: The Long Island Sound - a new 6 CD box set from the Jerry Garcia Band and Bob Weir & Rob Wasserman released on Round Records. This new archival release features two complete performances with over 5 1/2 hours of previously unreleased music from September 5th, 1989 at the Hartford Civic Center in Hartford, CT and September 6th, 1989 at Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, NY. Fall 1989: The Long Island Sound celebrates the storied East Coast 1989 run which featured acoustic duo Bob Weir and Rob Wasserman setting the stage for two nightly sets from the Jerry Garcia Band.

Fall 1989: The Long Island Sound was recorded by John Cutler to 2-track DAT and mastered by Joe Gastwirt. It's important to note this collection contains audio with apparent, irremediable sonic imperfections (most notably the distortion on Jerry's vocal during "Cats Under The Stars") heard by all who experienced these performances in person or on tape. Despite the limitations in fidelity, the performances presented showcase timeless, transcendent and often blistering moments of pure magic. Listen comfortably with our promise that every effort was made to produce these performances for release in a manner which honors the spirit of its creation.

Cover art by Stanley Mouse. Album package includes liner note essay by Blair Jackson and archival memorabilia from the collection of Steve Parish.

Garcia, Jerry - garcia live vol. 3: december 14-15, 1974 northwest tour [2013]
3 CD-Set! Teil 3 der neuen GarciaLive-Reihe - und wieder ist es ein Fest für die Jerry Garcia-Gemeinde und die Deadheads. Mitgeschnitten am 14 Dezember 1974 im Paramount Theatre von Portland/OR und am 15. Dezember 1974 im EMU Ballroom von Eugene/OR, enthält dieses 3 CD-Set über 2 1/2 Stunden bisher unveröffentlichter Konzertaufnahmen von Garcia's vielleicht experimentier- und improvisationsfreudigen, fantastischen Projekt "Legion Of Mary". Tolles Teil!

Legion Of Mary waren:

Jerry Garcia (Grateful Dead, Jerry Garcia Band) - guitar, vocals
Merl Saunders (Miles Davis, B.B. King, Garcia/Saunders) - keyboards, vocals
John Kahn (Jerry Garcia Band. Al Kooper, John Lee Hooker) - bass
Martin Fierro (Zero, James Cotton, Quicksilver Messenger Service) - saxophone
Ron Tutt (Elvis, Neil Diamond, Johnny Cash) - drums

Die offizielle Produktbeschreibung:

GarciaLive Volume Three: December 14-15, 1974 Northwest Tour celebrating one of Jerry’s most experimental, improvisational and revered projects: Legion of Mary. Scheduled for release on October 15, 2013, GarciaLive Volume Three presents highlights from two winter 1974 performances captured during what is thought to be Legion of Mary’s first tour featuring the core lineup of Garcia, Merl Saunders, John Kahn, Martin Fierro and Ron Tutt.
Garcia’s voice and playing sound inspired and youthful while Saunders drives the soul with the organ and his gruff, husky singing voice, effortlessly paired with Kahn’s and Tutt’s steady rhythm and Fierro’s perfectly textured brass playing. The music more than delivers with the musical baton being passed around effortlessly, with leads chasing leads and the musicians following one another gracefully as evidenced on tracks like the hard-driving “Mystery Train” where the musician’s solos dance and sway with each other.

Garcia, Jerry - on broadway: act one - october 28th, 1987 [2015]
3 CD-Set! Erste Veröffentlichung einer neuen Serie historischer Jerry Garcia-Konzerte, die die Shows der Jerry Garcia Band am Broadway zum Thema hat. Die vorliegenden 3 CDs haben die kompletten, bislang unveröffentlichten Sets vom 28. Oktober 1987 aus dem berühmten Lunt-Fontanne Theatre am New Yorker Broadway zum Inhalt. An diesem Tag gab es zwei akustische Sets der Jerry Garcia Acoustic Band und einen elektrischen mit der Jerry Garcia Band. Großartig!

Hier der offizielle Text zur Veröffentlichung im Original:

We're excited to announce the debut of On Broadway, a new archival series celebrating Jarry's magical 13 night run at the historic Lunt-Fontanne Theatre in New York City's Broadway theater district. On Broadway: Act One - October 28th, 1987 presents three complete sets of music, including previously unrelease matinee and evening acoustic sets from the Jerry Garcia Acoustic Band, as well as the evening electric set from the Jerry Garcia Band. The release was produced from newly remastered two-track soundboard recordings originally captured to digital audio tape and includes previously unpublished live photos, and a liner note essay by author, historian and Grateful Dead publicist, Dennis MyNally.
"The (two) Garcia Bands' - Jerry Garcia Acoustic Band, and the electrig JGB - 1987 run on Broadway from October 15th through Halloween was destined to be memorable for many reasons", as Dennis McNally states in the liner note essay. There's record setting ticket sale figures, a destiny tied to Jerry's namesake (Broadway composer Jerome Kern) and of course the sheer visual addity that is Deadheads descending upon The Great White Way, but what shines brightest is Garcia's juvial abd relaxed mood which sets the stage for the inspiring performances contained within the release. The below excerpt drom McNally's liner notes sums up the magic contained within the collection perfectly.
"The electric JGB was its usual solid self, ripping up Jerry's customany mix of Dylan (note especially Melvin's gorgeous, outstanding synthesizer work at 'Knockin' on Heaven's Door'), reggae (Peter Tosh's 'Stop That Tarin'), Mowtown (Marvin Gaye's 'How sweet it is') and Los Lobos' 'Evangeline'. The most interesting original here is the not-so-commonly sung 'Gomorrah', which garcia simply nails.
But it was the acoustic band that was unusual in this context, and it's worth some particilar attention. There are bluegrass songs - the Stanley Brothers' 'If I lose', amon others - folk songs - Libba Cotten's 'Oh babe it ain't no lie' - and country songs like the Tex Logan-arranged 'Diamond Joe' or Mel Tillis and Webb Pierce's 'I ain't nver', which has a Garcia/Nelson vocal duetthat sounds just like the Everly Brothers. The material was classy and fun and in some odd way just exactly right for Broadway".

Marshall Tucker Band, The - the next adventure [2007]
Die Marshall Tucker Band lässt mit ihrem neuen Studioalbum (selbst bei der Covergestaltung) den Spirit der frühen "Capricorn years" wieder aufleben! Überzeugte die Band vor 3 Jahren mit "Beyond the horizon" schon mit einer überraschend starken Vorstellung, so ist die Leistung diesmal glatt noch einen "Tick" stärker! Wieder mit Original-Sänger Doug Gray (hat das Album diesmal auch produziert) und den beiden Gitarristen Chris Hicks und Stuart Swanlund als Kern der Band (weiter sind dabei Pat Ellwood am Bass, Barry Borden an den Drums, David Muse an Flöte und Saxophon, sowie diverse Gäste - u.a. Paul Hornsby, Melvin Seals von der einstigen Jerry Garcia Band und das frühere MTB-/Toy Caldwell Band-Mitglied Tony Heatherly) erinnern die neuen Songs immer wieder an die guten alten Zeiten von "Searchin' for a rainbow", "A new life", "Long hard ride" oder "Running like the wind". Auch Bezüge zu der frühen Charlie Daniels Band, mit der die "Tucker-Boys" schon immer eine innige Freundschaft verband, sind spürbar, vor allem in Richtung solcher Songs wie "Long haired country boy". Weitestgehend sehr entspanntes, relaxtes Material, was allerdings nicht heißt, daß es hier an Spielfreude mangelt. Überhaupt nicht! Die Band wirkt voll auf der Höhe, inspiriert und frisch wie schon lange nicht mehr. Sie besinnen sich auf ihre Roots, bewahren ihre typischen Charakteristika und schaffen es damit auch rund 35 Jahre nach ihrem Debut noch immer diesen unvergleichlichen Sound zu kreieren, der sie einst zu einer absoluten Institution des Southern Rock hat werden lassen! Das wirkt alles andere als "angestaubt"! Immer wieder weht durch die Songs ein feines, überaus angenehmes Countryflair. Doch auch ihre typischen, Roots-, Blues- und Jam-Elemente sind vertreten, die von früher bekannte Jazz-Exkursionen fehlen jedoch fast vollständig. Ein paar flotte Nummern, viele Midtempo-Tracks und die ein oder andere Ballade ergeben eine wirklich hervorragende, ausgewogene Songauswahl, die von den "Credits" her schon an die guten alten Zeiten erinnert. Immerhin hat an drei der neuen Songs Original-Mitglied George McCorkle mitgewirkt (ob der vielleicht bald wieder bei der Band einsteigt?...), ein Song stammt gar noch aus der Feder des legendären Gitarristen Toy Caldwell! Hier ein paar der Highlights: "The guitar playing man" (flockiger, lockerer Rhythmus mit schöner Acoustic-Lead Gitarre, dezenten Flöten-Ergänzungen, klasse Steelguitar-Fills und einem wunderbaren "Mexican-Flair"); "Come runnin' like a friend" (starke Southern-/Countryrock-Ballade mit klasse E-Gitarren-Hooks, im Hintergrund agierender Hammond-Orgel, einer unaufdringlichen Fiddle und passenden Steelguitar-Klängen); "Travelin' man" (ein baumstarker, glühender, swampiger, funkiger, drückend groovender Southern Rocker mit toller Bluesharp, fetter Slide-Gitarre, inklusive eines großartigen Solos, und einem exzellenten Lead-Vokalisten Chris Hicks, "who sings his heart out on this one"); "I love you that way" (grandiose, ungemein gefühlvolle, rootsige, wunderbar ins Ohr gehende Southern-/Blues-Countryrock-Ballade, vorgetragen im Duett Lead-Gesang zwischen Chris Hicks und der mit einer tollen Stimme gesegneten Tochter von Doug Gray, Gabrielle Gray); "Cold steel" (flotter,sehr starker, Charlie Daniels-mäßiger, klassicher, countryinfizierter Southern Rocker mit exzellenten E-Gitarren-Läufen und prima Gesang von Doug Gray); "A sad cowboy song" (wunderbarer Southern-/Country-Waltz in einem klasse Steelguitar-/Acoustic Gitarren-/E-Gitarren-/Mundharmonika-Gewand); "Crossroad" (starke Twin-Gitarren, ein leicht funkiger Groove, der sich zu einer typischen "Tucker-Jam" entwickelt); oder auch "Jesus never had a motorcycle" (astreine, kraftvolle Southern Rock-Ballade mit einem satten E-Gitarren-Finish)! Das "nächste Abenteuer" der Marshall Tucker Band hat begonnen, doch es ist eines, das die vielen Fans dieser Southern Rock-Legende absolut zufriedenstellen dürfte. Schließen wir uns als Resümee den im Booklet nachzulesenden Worten des "Gritz"-Herausgebers Michael Buffalo Smith an: "It's The Marshall Tucker Band, American by birth and Southern by the grace of God"! Prima Leistung, Jungs!
