Garcia and Friends 1981 Vine

started by JackstrawfromColorado

Hey now these two unique shows on 4/25 and 5/22 warrant their own vine. I don’t know what you call them but it is something in between GD and JGB. The line-up is Garcia, Weir, Kreutzman, Hart and John Kahn and on 5/22 Mydland joins the fun (I actually wonder if Brent played 4/25 too). Both are short one set performances but as you may have guessed they are acoustic and exceptionally good. 5/22 is seriously one of the best sounding auds I have ever heard. Plus they play some of my favorite tunes. For example, how many times do you get to hear Dark Hollow? I just found these to be very enjoyable and something a little different.

I will include wav and flac files for this one on CD-R’s. Humongous thanks to RaymondMBrown for providing!! Hey if anyone knows the background on these shows I’d love to hear some stories!

update

Ready to go and will be out to 1958 on Mon. I already reminded 1958 but kwitt and DaveC I ask that you each convert and burn to CD 1 show so that non-FLACers later down the line can enjoy too. Thanks guys!
