They must have decided to not use the two Great Woods or single Worcester show from that tour (awesome shows!) due to Clarence Clemens being in Jerry’s band (likely didn’t want to pay royalties to his estate). Just supposition.
Looking forward to this box set!!

this is how they have to sell bob weir solo projects these days? weir/wasserman and JGB are like apples and dragonfruits

Probably a great version of heaven help the fool. Seriously though…Fall 89 arguably GDs finest tour in late era outside of spring 90.

Interesting combo, just like it was when it happened. lol. I personally will probably pass on it, but it is cool to see more JGB get out there. Wishing on more 1991 Fall JGB or 1993 Fall JGB to arrive in “top form”

Yeah the Great Woods shows were stellar! You knew there was going to be a great night of music when thunder storms moved on through the area on one of the nights largely missing the venue but treating everyone to a giant double rainbow over the entire outdoor arena and surrounding areas. So many folks just mesmerized looking up to the heavens….

Enjoyed the Weir Wasserman shows, and it’s hard to beat a JGB show, so strange as this combo may seem I personally think it’s way cool & will definitely jam it.
