Jerry's Back, and We've Got Him!
It’s been a long, long time since there’s been a Jerry Garcia music release, but the good news is that a new day is dawning, the pipeline to the Garcia vault is open again, and we hope to offer you quality JG tunes as often as we can! Dead.net, in conjunction with the recently formed Garcia Family LLC (mainly Jerry’s daughters), are pleased to announce their exclusive partnership, and to celebrate the occasion, we’re picking up right we left off—with a new addition to the popular “Pure Jerry” series. For those of you keeping score, this one is #8, and it marks the first official full release of acoustic music from Garcia and John Kahn.
The setting is the wonderful 2,000-seat Marin Veteran’s Memorial Auditorium in San Rafael on February 28, 1986, the last of 12 acoustic shows John and Jerry played that winter. It’d been a solid tour, with sold-out concerts in a number of cool East Coast venues. But this was a hometown show—literally—so the air was both relaxed and festive. The twelve songs collected here on a single disc are the complete two-set show from that night, nearly 70 minutes of music; a nice blend of old folk tunes, a Dylan number and Hunter-Garcia classics. Particularly noteworthy in that last category are the epic “Bird Song” and rockin’ “Run for the Roses.” Soundboard copies of this show have not been in circulation before.

And from here on, dead.net will be your best source for news and information about our exclusive Garcia releases and merchandise so stay tuned!
Have others received both the Carousel Road trips and the Garcia/Khan CD? I have not received mine yet and just want to confirm that they have been sent out before pressing with more questions. (I already dropped a line to Customer Service on 3/31 but have not received a reply...)
on Brewer and Shipley's "Tarkio Road".
Just a guess as I don't have the CD to know the outro, you are talking about
but I do believe he played on that tune of theirs.
The Truth is realized in an instant, the act is practiced step by step.
The "Goodnight Irene" is a real treat, and "Bird Song" gets spacey. Absolutely worth picking up.
Great to see the Pure Jerry series continue. This show is amazing!! The sounds quality and performance are top shelf! This is a MUST have!! Keep the Jerry releases coming.
What an intelligent young lady Annabelle is.
I wish her and her sisters all the best and thank them for making Jerry's music available again.
that is a pretty interesting little doc, and yes, she makes me cringe too - especially knowing she's the one responsible for the Trinketization of Jerry (I always thought those damn dolls were ridiculous, now even more so).
But what's with the Brewer & Shipley song for the outro?
The temptation is to not want to give her a dime after all she's done, but I must admit that even if every penny for the Pure Jerry series went to her, I'd still buy 'em. I guess lucky for her she can sit back and collect on the trinkets.
Thanks for the post GFDEAD, that was pretty interesting. Although I admit that I am ignorant of all the facts, and that I do not know her personally, there is something about that woman that makes me cringe. She is, to me, the anti-Jerry.
At least Annabelle appears to have alot of Jerry in her.
Regardless, I will buy the Jerry stuff because I love the music, "pure" and simple.
"One watch by night, one watch by day
If you get confused, listen to the music play"
I have waited 20 years for this.
all the gratful dead in the world cant do me like
1 jerry and john .My wife and i are fighting over this now.lol
I got this crazy notion about "enjoying the music"... good enough for me!
Watch these videos about the disaster that is Jerry's estate....this project is amazing for 2 reasons: 1) its about the music (not ties, ice cream etc), and 2) it goes to Jerry's daughters, not the Koon (Jerry's widow). Just watch these 4 parts and you'll understand...and hopefully purchase:
