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.

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.

Garcia, Jerry - garcia live vol. 9: august 11th 1974, keystone berkeley [2017]
2 CD-Set! Neunter Teil der äußerst beliebten GarciaLive-Reihe. Diesmal gibt es den großartigen Mistschnitt eines begnadeten Auftritts von Jerry Garcia und Merle Saunders aus dem californischen Berkeley (Keystone). Die fantastische Begleitband der beiden bstand damals aus John Kahn am Bass, Martin Fierro am Saxophon und der Flöte, sowie Grateful Dead's Bill Kreutzmann am Schlagzeug. Eine irre starke Rock-/Jazz-/R&B-Fusion Performance voller Feuer, Seele und herausragender Virtuosität. Erneut ein absolutes Highlight für die Jerry Garcia-Jünger und die Deadheads.

Die offizielle Produktbeschreibung:

GarciaLive Volume Nine presents Jerry Garcia & Merl Saunders' August 11th, 1974 performance at Keystone in Berkeley, CA. Joining Garcia & Saunders this evening were John Kahn on bass, Martin Fierro on saxophone & flute and the Grateful Dead’s Bill Kreutzmann on drums. As the site of over 200 performances by Garcia in various configurations, the Keystone Berkeley stage likely felt more like an extension of the Saunders’ family garage where the group would often practice. It was a space without pressure or pretense — one in which they could freely experiment with arrangements, new repertoire and, most of all, just jam.
Saunders’ influence on Garcia’s musical development is plainly heard on GarciaLive Volume Nine. As Garcia once noted in an interview, "Saunders filled me in on all those years of things I didn’t do. I’d never played any standards; I’d never played in dance bands. I never had any approach to the world of regular, straight music. He knew all the standards, and he taught me how bebop works. He taught me music.” While the evening’s setlist focuses primarily on standards, the approach is anything but regular or straight. A free-spirited version of The Four Tops’s R&B classic “Ain’t No Woman (Like The One I’ve Got)”, one of the evening’s easy highlights, showcases Garcia & Saunders' ability to reimagine standards through inventive arrangements and fiery virtuosity permeated with soul. Other standouts from this performance include a surging “(I’m A) Roadrunner” and an extended take on Jimmy Cliff’s “The Harder They Come” which clocks in at nearly 20 minutes.

Disc 1:
1. That's What Love Will Make You Do - 13:14
2. La La - 17:06
3. It Ain't No Use - 10:57

Garcia, Jerry & Merle Saunders - garcia live vol. 6: july 5th 1973, lion's share [2016]
3 CD-Set! Sechster Teil der beliebten GarciaLive-Reihe. Mitgeschnitten von der berühmten Grateful Dead Archivistin und "recording engineer" Betty Cantor-Jackson gibt es diesmal eine fantastische, bislang gänzlich unveröffentlichte Performance von Jerry Garcia und Merle Saunders mit ihrer Band (mit Bassist John Kahn und Drummer Bill Vitt, plus einem "mystery guest on trumpet") aus dem kleinen, gerade mal 200 Leute fassenden Bay Area Lion’s Share Club in San Anselmo, CA vom 5. July 1973. Erneut ein absolutes Fest für die Jerry Garcia-Gemeinde und die Deadheads.

Die offizielle Produktbeschreibung:

Volume Six showcases Jerry Garcia and Merl Saunders’ July 5th, 1973 performance at the Lion’s Share in San Anselmo, CA. Recorded by Betty Cantor-Jackson just five days prior to the seminal performances celebrated on the Live at the Keystone series, GarciaLive Volume Six highlights a particularly adventurous evening at the Lion’s Share, a 200 capacity club known for its vibrant music scene which drew regulars like Janis Joplin, Phil Lesh, Van Morrison, and many others. The club’s intimacy can be felt throughout the recordings as the band, rounded out by John Kahn on bass and drummer Bill Vitt, frequently launch into extended improvisations fueled by the exchange of energy with the audience. The blistering “She’s Got Charisma” -> “That’s Alright, Mama”, which clocks in at over 31 minutes long, “starts off innocently in familiar blues territory, but very quickly deconstructs into fragmentation and exploration, defying both gravity and expectation at the same time” as writer Benjy Eisen eloquently describes in the releases’ liner note essay. The presence of an unidentified guest on trumpet during the band’s second set adds to the freedom and looseness found within the performance. The guest trumpeter is felt most during extended takes on “My Funny Valentine” and “Merl’s Tune,” both easy highlights of the entire evening.
