Very nice stuff. I always enjoyed the Persuasions Sing the Grateful Dead, so it's nice to hear Jerry Lawson on this as well. Very nice tribute from all involved at the time. I remember a good friend of mine saw Vince play at a small college town bar shortly before his passing.

Thanks for posting these Vince tribute shows. It's just sickening the way Vince lost his life. I remember seeing him in 1998 in Seattle in a club in front of like 10 people and he played with great passion, like it was Madison Square Garden.

These were great shows. Terrific tributes from his collaborators and friends. I have always been surprised more Deadheads didn't recognize how skilled he was. It was unfortunate the organization dictated his sounds - that was a huge mistake. If you ever saw him in a club he played analog organ and other keyboards and sounded spectacular.
