Garcia Live Volume 1 Announced

Shortly after unveiling Jerry Garcia’s new website, the musician’s estate has now announced the first volume in a new archival series titled Garcia Live. The first volume in the series features a recording from the historic Capitol Theatre in Passaic, NJ on March 1, 1980, which includes both an early and a late show. Both shows were originally multi-tracked on a 24-track mobile rig for WNEW’s broadcast of the early show.

Mixed by John Cutler and mastered by Joe Gastwirt, the recording features the lineup of Garcia on guitar and vocals, John Kahn on bass, Ozzie Ahlers on Keys and Johnny de Foncesca on drums. Highlights including a take on the Jimmie Rodgers tune “That’s All Right,” an early show encore of “Deal” and a version of “That’s What Love Will Make You Do.”

Garcia Live Volume 1 comes out on or around November 9. Head to the all-new to pre-order your copy now.

I’m guessing the Pure Jerry series didn’t sell too well. This is the first Jerry Band release in a long while. Nice to see this one coming out!

Why not release something more unique? Awfully similar to the Kean College show.

jerry band is a gift from the gods, and Kean was jerry rockin his best, ie: after mid night, I didn’t know the drummer and keyboardist but that was a tight show however the setlist for this capitol ’80 show is a real disappointment. Every tune we’ve already got, in many dif line ups of Jerry band. Man I was looking foreward to that line up with some new tunes. Hopefully in the future they’ll realease some diff tunes. Let me roll it from 1839 is the type I’m talikg about. Still being in my 50s now and groovin’ to new Jerry releases is as good as years ago getting the latest sound board dead show tape.Long live jerrys memory. (I still think he’s coming back, all hope is not lost, not yet anyway)
