It's been pointed out that for some strange reason we have no thread for the JGB. Yikes! Now we do. Talk about old and current versions of the band here.

Garcia & Grisman

For those of you out there into purchasing digital music, Amazon is having an Americana sale in their MP3 department. While no Grateful Dead or Jerry Garcia Band albums are up for sale (don't ask me why), "Jerry Garcia And David Grisman" is: http://www.amazon.com/Jerry-Garcia-And-David-Grisman/dp/B000S5ACUK/ref=sr_shvl_album_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1373055801&sr=301-4. And for only $5.99, no less!

Not a bad deal if you don't already have the album. Act fast, though; the sale ends on the 7th.

The Jerry Garcia Band

Songwriters: JOHNSON, CHARLES B.

I wanna say to my sisters and my brothers
Keep the faith
When the storm flies and the wind blows
Go on at a steady pace

When the battle is fought, and the victory's won
We can all shout together, we have overcome
We'll talk to the Father and the Son
When we make it to the promised land

If we walk together, little children
We don't ever have to worry
Through this world of trouble
We gotta love one another

Let us take our fellow man by the hand
Try to help him to understand
We can all be together, forever and ever
When we make it to the promised land

Our bible reads
Thou shall not be afraid
Of the terror by night
Nor the arrow that flies by day

Nor for the pestilence
That waiteth in the darkness
Nor for the destruction
That waiteth in the noon-day hour

If we walk together, little children
We don't ever have to worry
Through this world of trouble
We gotta love one another

Let us take our fellow man by the hand
Try to help him to understand
We can all be together, forever and ever
When we make it to the promised land

This world is not our home
We're only passing through
Our trail is all made up
Way beyond the blue

Let us do the very best that we can
While we're travelin' through this land
We can all be together, shakin' a hand
When we make it to the promised land

If we walk together, little children
We don't ever have to worry
Through this world of trouble
We gotta love one another

Let us take our fellow man by the hand
Try to help him to understand
We can all be together, forever and ever
When we make it to the promised land

When we make it to the promised land
Make it to the promised land
(Sisters)
Make it to the promised land
(Little children)
Make it to the promised land

Make it to the promised land
(Children)
Make it to the promised land
We can all be together, forever and ever
When we make it to the promised land

Walk together, little children
We won't ever have to worry
Through this world of trouble
We gotta love one another

Let us take our fellow man by the hand
~Try to help him to understand~
We can all be together, forever and ever
When we make it to the promised land

We can all be together, forever and ever
When we make it to the promised land

Thanks sherbear! I'm inspired now to pick up GarciaLive 1&2. And one more shout out for the recent Garcia/Saunders Keystone Companions Box set. I was hesitant to buy it since I had most of it already, but really it's worth every penny. just a superb box in every aspect.

Palmer-

In the GD Hour this week there is a excellent
Garcia/Grisman Russian Lullaby, you can use
the time bar as a fast forward: it's at 40:50

Ditto to the Garcia/Grisman tapes. They, too,
were great together.

To chime the JGB bells, I miss those shows so much.
It was like boarding a love vessel whose journey
and destination was the soul: to tend it, heal it,
mend it, teach it, console it, rock it in its
need to be pure energy! TO this day, I must listen
to the JGB as its perfection...in a ecstasy soulful kind
of array.

The beauty of the JGB still lives and is so beautiful, xo.
Go see them if you can.

wish list

I have been listening a lot to the "Let it Rock" album lately. I got it when it came out but have neglected it until now. What a great band! Jerry and Nicky sound great together. Sadly, it now seems out of print. I hope the new GarciaLive series revisits Garcia/Hopkins. They are really worthy of a box set. Also, a "Reconstruction" release is overdue. FInally, what the heck is going on with the Garcia/Grisman releases? I guess most of Grisman's studio recordings are out, but what about live recordings? Nothing since the Grateful Dawg soundtrack- was it really 12 years ago? Surely, there were live recordings made. I thought Grisman, especially, would have documented many of those shows. All the live Garcia/Grisman I've heard is pure gold. Please get some of this stuff released!

Garcia Live Vol. 2

finishing up listening to the new album

it seems to get better with every track
and the last is certainly my fave

but that's listening on the Amazon cloud and thru a very modest desk speaker system (at work) - hopefully the CD will be on my doorstep when I get home

can't beat the price tho

Was always my favorite. But whatever came down the pike was always just all right with me. After hearing that 25 minute version of Shining Star on You Tube from 93 (93 for God's sake!) you just couldn't ever know what Jerry was capable of.
