New Garcia archival recording, 1977


Recommended Posts

Don't know if this was posted recently... if it was, I missed it, and offer sincerest apologies to all of you who will be, I know, deeply offended by my oversight.

From www.jerrygarcia.com:

Until now, the recordings of Jerry Garcia's concerts as bandleader have been relatively scarce and of uneven sound quality, unlike those of Grateful Dead, whose live recordings circulate abundantly. The "Pure Jerry" series will be selected from the substantial and remarkably diverse library that makes up Jerry's entire independent live archive. "Theatre 1839" is the first installment in the series, and is only available from www.jerrygarciastore.com

As a special bonus, everyone that pre-orders will be automatically entered to win an original, framed poster from the show featured in this release.

This three-disc set was recorded July 29 & 30, 1977, at a small San Francisco music hall during a break in the Dead's touring. The lineup of the day included Keith and Donna Jean Godchaux, John Kahn and Ron Tutt. Running almost 2 1/2 hours, "Theatre 1839" features the 18 best performances captured from the two-night run. (Neither show was recorded in its entirety, reasons for which have been lost to time).

Make sure to choose the express shipping option to receive your CDs on June 8th.
