The PERRO Tapes

David Crosby, Graham Nash, Jerry Garcia, Phil Lesh, Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann, Grace Slick, Paul Kantner, Jorma Kaukonen, Jack Casady, David Freiberg and others...

These are some tapes of everyone above in rehersal, working through songs, and just freely jamming together. Most of the songs arent finished and some barely get started and they are over. But these are still unbelievable, everyone should hear these! The other discs are just some jam sessions I have with the same crew. The last one is Crosby,Garcia,Lesh, and Hart aka David and the Dorks. This will be 6 audio disc and a data dvd with shn/flac files.

I dont think anyone knows if the dates are right. I have some similar tapes of Garcia trying out new songs that eventually became Workingmans Dead. If I ever figure out where or when they were recorded I will post them.

10/19 - 10/22 1970

The Grateful Dead took a break between Minneapolis (18th) and D.C. (23rd) so I guess it is possible?

Jerry was a busy dude that's for sure..

last night I was listening to the "10-21-70" disc from this vine and thinking (dangerous thing to do after getting back from the bar, I know).

First of all, the date is almost surely incorrect, since the Dead were on tour on the EAST COAST for pretty much all of October and November of 1970. And this is likely a tape from the Tuesday Night Jams at the Matrix that were common in those days, and 10-21-70 fell on a Wednesday.

The player line-up doesn't sound right, either. There's a drummer here, and nobody listed played drums that I know of. Also, 2 bassists (Casady and Freiberg) seems unlikely, although maybe Freiberg was on keyboards this night, or they were trading off songs or something.

I don't know that anybody here (or anywhere) can shed some light on this, just thought I'd pass along my thoughts. Regardless of what the actual date was or who was playing, this is one to put in the cd player and just let the music play.
