To celebrate, we've been streaming select tracks - like this very special song from the latest Jerry Garcia Band release, Let It Rock.
Friend Of The Devil (Keystone Berkeley, 11/17/1975)
(player takes a minute to load - but it's worth the wait!)
Just hearing the first few notes of this I think I'm in on this wow, and I had just picked up Compliments last week! Dig it Let It Rock!! Jerry Forever!!!
Also hooked after the intro...
pretty great! Let It Rock may be my favorite Jerry cover, just because he kicks it into a whole nother sphere from the original. Which has always struck me as classic, yeah, but Chuck Berry fluff. Whereas with Jerry it is this primordial epic of humans scrambling in the in face of inexorable force and pretty much a metaphor for life, the universe and everything, with music to match.
There's probably a case to be made that Nicky is a little too pretty as contrasted to powerful, but hey, I will take this and say thank you very much!!!
let it rock Nicky!! Nice and smooth!
nicky hopkins no less, too.. i love jerry, love the stones piano in the nicky hopkins years and love this show.. i have never ever heard it at all sounding like this..
i done put santa and the elves on notice on this one..
wow.. so clear and sounds so, easy and clear.. way to go, y'all sitting in the teepee built right on the track...
I'M NOT SURE BUT THIS LOOKS LIKE PRE MERL, ANY BODY KNOW FOR SURE? IT'S DONE IN LIKE SLOW MOTION, I THOUGHT I HAD HEARD EVERY VERSION OF THIS LIVE AND STUDIO BUT THIS IS JAMMIN ....I DID NOT READ THE INTRO SO I'M NOT SURE WHO'S ON KEY'S HERE AND HOW MANY TIMES HE JAMMED WITH JERRY IT'S ALL GOOD.........................WELL IT'S ALL GREAT!
Sweet sounds...........just great
Just finished the Let it Rock. Fabulous and can't wait to get my copy. Yes, no Merl but they did Keystone Berkeley in 73 and 74. If you can get those.....hugely great!!!!
Delilajones OH MY!!! OH MY!!! " Let there be songs to fill the air" and this one sure does!
