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.

"In a bed, in a bed, by the waterside I will lay my head.
Listen to the river sing sweet songs, to rock my soul."
I remember this show well! I was in college. A friend told me she'd buy me a ticket for my birthday, and then borrowed the money from me to get it. It was worth it.
