I too would love to see that .. Jerry did a lot of gospel music .. that is a great idea !!
that's a really good idea.
I would love to see a box set of gospel songs performed by Jerry Garcia and his band, David Grissman,and others, if there is not enough for a box set I know there is more than enough for an awesome CD.

Does anyone have more news on the Winterland 73 box? May is not so far away. Nothing on the Rhino site, nor here, that I could find.
had a few more thoughts for the ideal pigpen anthology. this would include a DVD biography with lots of interviews with the pig himself as well as others, rare behind the scenes images and film footage and some choice concert material of mr. pig at his best. also included would be a book with more bio stuff and pictures. and of couse several CDs of pigger's best performances. the dillon gym show from 70 would have to be included. this show had the "good lovin'" with the "buck & a quarter" rap as well as the "lovelight" where our friend plays matchmaker and pairs up guys and girls from the audience. also need would be the carousel show in 69 with him and janis. hope someone is interested in putting this together!
when will the good folks at wherever please create a pigpen anthology box set? a lot of us older heads would gobble it up like candy and the younger heads would have a new appreciation for the man who for many of us was the embodiment of what the dead was all about in the early days. i'm pretty sure Piggers and Jerry are knockin' out some great blues up in heaven. just a thought ....
But what about a Box set benefiting Rex of all the Rex benefit shows?
another vote for winterland 73 !
and any other classics mr lemieux can pry out of the vault - please rhino - just release something! seems like its been forever since a full show was released. i missed the full fillmore and don't intend to make that same mistake twice.
unique packaging with stories, photos, reviews etc are much appreciated.
thank you thank you
