It’s been a few years since the last Pure Jerry release, so we had started to wonder whether the flow of Jerry Garcia live archival material had been turned off. Thankfully the newly launched JerryGarcia.com shows us that Jer’s estate has a new archival series about to start and it’s called Garcia Live. The first Garcia Live release will feature the two Jerry Garcia Band performances from Passaic’s Capitol Theatre that took place on March 1, 1980.
Set to come out on or around November 9, Garcia Live Vol. 1 shows off a version of the Jerry Garcia Band that featured Garcia on guitar and vocals, John Kahn on bass, Ozzie Ahlers on Keys and Johnny de Foncesca on drums. The JGB played both an early and late show on March 1 at the historic venue that were originally multi-tracked on a 24-track mobile rig for WNEW’s broadcast of the early show. This release will be mixed by John Cutler and mastered by Joe Gastwirt. You can currently pre-order a 3-CD set or digital download in FLAC or MP3 format.
Here’s the tracklist for Garcia Live Vol. 1:
