|2 CD-Set! Neue, großartige Veröffentlichung aus den umfangreichen Jerry Garcia-Archiven. Die beliebte GarciaLive-Serie findet ihre Fortsetzung in "Vol. 11" mit einem prächtigen Konzertmitschnitt der Jerry Garcia Band vom 11. November 1993 aus dem Civic Center in Providence, Rhode Island. Es war die finale U. S.-East Coast-Tour der Band. Die Setlist ist vorzüglich und enthält die ein oder andere recht selten dargebotene Nummer, wie zum Beispiel klasse Coverversionen von Van Morrison's "He Ain't Give You None" und Smokey Robinson's "When The Hunter Gets Captured By The Game".
Hier ein Original U.S.-Review:
This show from a soundboard source (recorded by John Cutler) is from '93 in Providence, Rhode Island. The band is Garcia, John Kahn-bass, David Kemper-drums, Melvin Seals-keyboards, and Jacklyn LaBranch and Gloria Jones-vocals. This was perhaps Garcia's best band away from his usual job with the Dead.
The set lists have several songs heard on earlier Garcia Band releases like "Mission In The Rain", "Simple Twist Of Fate", and "Don't Let Go". But also here are relative rarities like Van Morrison's "He Ain't Give You None", and the great Smokey Robinson's "When The Hunter Gets Captured By The Game". Also here is a good version of the Hunter-Garcia tune "Cats Under The Stars", plus another nice version of "The Way You Do The Things You Do", and the Beatles' "Dear Prudence". But a real high point is the lengthy "Don't Let Go", with both Garcia and Seals taking things up to another level or two musically with some great solos. But other lengthy tunes also have their own delights for JGB fans. The show ends with an electrified version of Peter Rowan's "Midnight Moonlight", which somehow feels right.
The band at this stage had really meshed into a fine unit, with the rhythm section perfectly underpinning Garcia's vocals and his and Seals solos. The female vocalists too give some added smooth depth on the vocal side. This is another good example of the Garcia Band on stage, and is a worthy addition to other earlier Garcia Band shows we've heard. Even the songs we've all heard before have a nice sound, and are part of the Garcia musical puzzle.
The packaging is similar to previous releases in this great series. The 15 page booklet too is along the same lines as previous releases with a seven page essay by Blair Jackson and some nice period photos, plus a track list and recording information. The soundboard source tape is very good--again--similar to other soundboard releases in this series. A worthy addition to the shelf of Garcia Band releases. (Stuart Jefferson)
