I like those threads about the Dead and thought I will roll with it here. My first pick will be 1972-01-20 Garcia/Saunders with the song Man-Child. TRIPPY is all I can say!!!! The exploration is pretty Dark Star intense if that makes any sense.

Glad you started this subject, Dogstarz, and I hope other join.

I, too, have been listening to Garcia/Saunders from 72 and really like it. It has songs I have not heard before so it is a great change of pace. Jerry has more freedom without Bobby and he his playing is more structured around songs usually really than the always long and sometimes aimless noodling that he did with the Dead during this period.

Currently, I am listening to 6/30/72 and it is great with an emphasis on different types of blues with some standards for him as well around this time. It is hard for me to pick one tune as there are a lot of great ones. However, I like "sick and tired" which is a hard driving blues sound with some great fast playing (and a guest singer who I do not know who he is. No guests are listed on the Jerry site). I have never heard Biloxi before and loved it as well. The Expressway has more variety than other versions I have heard from this year, where he slows it down nicely and then builds to more of a climax, and there is a long After Midnight that I liked on first listen. Some great playing on Are you lonely for me towards the end and a space jam that is cut before it ends.

All in all, give this a listen if you have not heard it.

Expressway I believe is the take off many Garcia/Saunders great jams. I think I have mentioned this before somewhere on here. There is a certain calmness to Garcia's playing in those early 70's G/S shows that I haven't found anywhere else. After all this is said. If you haven;t heard Hooteroll? from Howard Wales and Jerry Garcia you are missing out. Very exploratory jams in a studio setting. Also Wales was up for the key spot in the Dead before Keith. According to Bobby Wales would make them weirder and they would make Wales weirder. I personally would have dug this but with the cowboy era it would never have worked.

Agreed on the Expressway being a take off. My favorite one is from 12/20/72. It goes into a short jam that has an Elenor Rigby sound to me into a space jam into a great version of Georgia on My Mind. Has anyone heard this? Reactions? If you have not heard it, give it a listen.

You know, I was having trouble putting my finger on what I am liking about Jerry's playing from this time period and you put your finger on it - it is relaxed and fluid but, unlike 76 for example, it has energy to it.[/b]

are u lonely for me from 6/30/72.

This has a really great and long Jerry solo. it comes out hot out of the box in the first few minutes, slows down some and then builds into a space jam that is cut off before the end.

I know I am repeating myself, but this is a great show. As an entire show, I probably like it better than anything from the Dead for the year. As Koch has said in his review of Sept 72, even the great Dead shows have a lot of blah spots and even the great Dark Starts have such spots. This Garcia/Saunders spots has very few such spots.

I look forward to reactions from others who listen to this show.

I've never heard this one, but if its similar to the quality of the night before at the Warner Theatre, it must be awesome. Helluva setlist.

You Can Leave Your Hat On 6/21/75 Keystone, Berkely

A nice 15 min ultra sleezy reading by Merl and a nice long funky jam in the middle. And NO kids the song is NOT a Joe Cocker song. It was written by Randy Newman who never gets the credit he deserves for this song and Mama Told Me Not to Come......a nice, clean little ditty about going to an orgy. Randy had some good ones!

The Harder They Come - 4/9/75

21 minute long funktastic dance-a-thon featuring some nice Jerry fanning towards the end. No other configuration came close to playing this song as well as LoM.

Shining Star 1-14-95

This is almost 30 minutes and the band is on. I almost think Jerry was a different guitar player when he was in JGB in 95 when compared to the Dead.

This was the last Jerry show that I attended and this Shining Star was the highlight for me. Jerry seemed to be enjoying himself (drug induced??) as he ended the show by raising his right hand in the air and the crowd loved it.

I also liked "wonderful world."

Just gave this show a listen today. I recommend the "That's All Right Mama" though. For those who think that Jerry's guitar playing reached a peak much later should give this one (or even the one from 1/15/72 a listen. Another favorite for me from 11/20 is the "Imagine."

10/12/1975 "That's What Love Will Make You Do"!

The Whole Show is FIYO!

Have to mention the "Mystery Train", "Edward", and "You Win Again" as well,
A Perfect Blend of Garcia/Hopkins/Kahn/Tutt with special guest Tim Hensley roaring on keys, especially adding to "Edward", even though Hopkins, as always, tears it up

I must second this assessment.

Let me make a more general point. Although 76 is not my favorite year for JGB, the slow tempo on some songs works so well and this is a great example. This version of Lonesome has a blues feel and I find the groove to be very listenable. There also is a good fanning moment that I suspect appeals to Gopher.
this is another good thing about 76, meaning that even the slower tempo also has really good climaxes that are built to rather slowly.

6/13/1969
Cleanliness and Godliness Skiffle
Saturday, Jun 28, 1969
Somoma County Fairgrounds, Santa Rosa, CA

Who Will Buy The Wine
A-11
How High's The Water Mama
County Fair
Waterline
I Couldn't Marry Juana

A widely circulated poster features The Grateful Dead headlining three nights over “Jorma Kaukonen, Jack Casady and Joey Covington” and the Cleanliness and Godliness Skiffle Band. The first two nights (Friday and Saturday June 27-28, 1969)were scheduled for the Sonoma County Fairgrounds, and the last night (Sunday June 29, 1969) at The Barn in Rio Nido. Rio Nido is a small community near Guerneville, in the remote Northwest corner of Sonoma County. The Rio Nido Barn is often confused with The Barn in Scotts Valley (near Santa Cruz), but I believe it was a tiny place previously known as The Rio Nido Dance Hall. Jorma and Jack did not yet use the name Hot Tuna for their local gigs, and this gig with Covington was an early, electric iteration ot Tuna. The Cleanliness and Godliness Skiffle Band were a locally popular Berkeley band, who had released one album on Vanguard in 1968. I have written extensively about their history elsewhere. As part of that research, CGSB harmonica player recalls these gigs very clearly, for a variety of memorable reasons. After a memorable first night, where CGSB drummer Tom Ralston sat in with the Dead for a few numbers, Jerry Garcia returned the favor by sitting in on pedal steel guitar with the Cleanliness and Godliness Skiffle Band for most of their set. Garcia had just purchased the steel guitar at a music store in Boulder, CO on April 13, and only recently begun playing in public with John Dawson, David Nelson and a few others, starting in May. He was still looking for opportunities to perform. CGSB harmonica man Brian Voorheis (in a personal email) doesn’t recall the precise set list, but he does remember some of the the country styled songs they were playing.

A widely circulated poster features The Grateful Dead headlining three nights over “Jorma Kaukonen, Jack Casady and Joey Covington” and the Cleanliness and Godliness Skiffle Band. The first two nights (Friday and Saturday June 27-28, 1969)were scheduled for the Sonoma County Fairgrounds, and the last night (Sunday June 29, 1969) at The Barn in Rio Nido. Rio Nido is a small community near Guerneville, in the remote Northwest corner of Sonoma County. The Rio Nido Barn is often confused with The Barn in Scotts Valley (near Santa Cruz), but I believe it was a tiny place previously known as The Rio Nido Dance Hall. Jorma and Jack did not yet use the name Hot Tuna for their local gigs, and this gig with Covington was an early, electric iteration ot Tuna. The Cleanliness and Godliness Skiffle Band were a locally popular Berkeley band, who had released one album on Vanguard in 1968. I have written extensively about their history elsewhere. As part of that research, CGSB harmonica player recalls these gigs very clearly, for a variety of memorable reasons. After a memorable first night, where CGSB drummer Tom Ralston sat in with the Dead for a few numbers, Jerry Garcia returned the favor by sitting in on pedal steel guitar with the Cleanliness and Godliness Skiffle Band for most of their set. Garcia had just purchased the steel guitar at a music store in Boulder, CO on April 13, and only recently begun playing in public with John Dawson, David Nelson and a few others, starting in May. He was still looking for opportunities to perform. CGSB harmonica man Brian Voorheis (in a personal email) doesn’t recall the precise set list, but he does remember some of the the country styled songs they were playing.


So I take it there's no audio available?

And welcome to the Pub!

If there is I would love to hear it. 6/27/69 is one of my favorite early shows.
And welcome!

9/15/84 Get Out My Life Woman

I'm no expert in this era of JGB, but find me a peppier, hotter version of this song and I'll buy you a drink. I think this is one of the more mediocre JGB covers, given the greatness of the original and about a dozen other versions -- but this one is both light on its feet and pretty smokin'.

Wouldn't mind hearing the aud though. The sbd ain't the best.

Reconstruction 8/10/79: Sama Layuca > jam > Dear Prudence. Yikes! SL gets progressively spacier, floats off into the ether with Jerry's solo, then resolves in this incredibly tranquil jam of sunrise bliss as Jer and Merl sync up and usher in a lovely Prudence. Serious goosebump material, and definitely not the kind of jam I would expect from a Jerry side-project, particularly this one!
