It’s been a long, long time since there’s been a Jerry Garcia music release, but the good news is that a new day is dawning, the pipeline to the Garcia vault is open again, and we're looking forward to offering you quality JG tunes as often as we can! Dead.net, in conjunction with the recently formed Garcia Family LLC (mainly Jerry’s daughters), are pleased to announce their first independent release with a new installment of the popular "PURE JERRY" series, Marin Vet's, 2/28/86. For those of you keeping score, this one is the eighth, and it marks the first official full release of acoustic music from Garcia and John Kahn.
The setting is the wonderful 2,000-seat Marin Veteran’s Memorial Auditorium in San Rafael, the last of 12 acoustic shows John and Jerry played that winter. It’d been a solid tour, with sold-out concerts in a number of cool East Coast venues. But this was a hometown show—literally—so the air was both relaxed and festive. The twelve songs collected here on a single disc are the complete two-set show from that night, nearly 70 minutes of music; a nice blend of old folk tunes, a Dylan number and Hunter-Garcia classics. Particularly noteworthy in that last category are the epic “Bird Song” and rockin’ “Run for the Roses.” Soundboard copies of this show have not been in circulation before.

It coming froma Garcia's daughters maked this sound real promising. Hopefully Debbie Koont won't have her decrepid greedy litte Gollum fingers out for her take. I hope they can pull this off and we finally get some good Jerry stuff out of this!
