  • Jerry Garcia Reflections LP + Organic T-Shirt Bundle
    Item #: JY119COMBO
    40th Anniversary re-issue on 180gram black vinyl remastered for release by Fred Kevorkian. Pressed by Quality Record Pressings. Lacquers cut by Ron McMaster at Capitol Studios.

    Originally released in early 1976, Reflections features a diverse mix of roots-oriented styles with contributions from Garcia’s two primary vehicles of musical expression — the Grateful Dead and the Jerry Garcia Band. In some ways, Reflections picks up where Garcia and the Dead left off on Blues For Allah. Speaking about the sessions, Garcia explained “we were having fun in the studio is what it boils down to, and that’s pretty rare for us. The energy was there, and I thought, ‘I’ve got a solo album coming up. Let’s cut these tracks with the Grateful Dead. I’ve already taught them the tunes.’” Assembled in Bob Weir’s home studio, Ace’s, Garcia and the Dead laid down well-worn but never previously recorded songs including “They Love Each Other”, “It Must Have Been The Roses”, and “Comes A Time” plus a new song, Robert Hunter’s “Might As Well” — a document of the Dead’s 1970 trip across Canada aboard the legendary Festival Express. The balance of the record showcases the late-1975 Jerry Garcia Band core featuring John Kahn, Ron Tutt and Nicky Hopkins, plus Larry Knechtel of the famed Wrecking Crew. Like the material recorded by the Grateful Dead, the Jerry Garcia Band’s selections were also road-tested prior to recording. The cuts included the seminal Garcia/Hunter ballad "Mission in the Rain” plus renditions of Hank Ballard’s rocker “Tore Up Over You”, “Catfish John” and Allen Toussaint’s “I’ll Take A Melody.” As Steve Silberman noted in the 2004 All Good Things box set, while Reflections was effectively two half-albums in one, "it’s one of Garcia’s most artistically unified statements of harmony, affirmation and joy.”

    • Folk Time CD
    • Exclusive Hart Valley Drifters 100% organic cotton t-shirt

    Folk Time showcases Garcia’s folk & bluegrass quartet, the Hart Valley Drifters and holds historical significance as Garcia’s first known studio recording.

    Note: This bundle is available for pre-order and will be released on November 11th. Payment for your order will be captured as soon as the order is placed.

The group featured a 20-year old Jerry Garcia on lead vocals, banjo and guitar, Robert Hunter on bass, David Nelson on guitar, Ken Frankel on banjo, fiddle and guitar and Norm Van Maastricht on dobro.

    On Folk Time, Garcia can be heard flexing his vocal muscles throughout, taking the lead on every track. He stands out on the Stanley Brothers’ “Roving Gambler” and “Think of What You’ve Done,” and on “Sugar Baby,” he channels the haunting original Dock Boggs’ vocal while covering the Folkways version by Doc Watson and Clarence Ashley. One of Jerry’s early bluegrass guitar heroes, Carter Stanley, supplies the influence for his guitar The collection winds up with a stunning performance of Doc Watson’s take on the Mississippi Sheiks’ “Sitting On Top of The World” It’s a simple version consisting only of Frankel’s guitar and Garcia’s voice that leaves the hairs standing on the back of your neck. It’s a departure from the recording that ended up on their debut album, but the roots of the Grateful Dead are clearly marked.

  • Jerry Garcia Band - GarciaLive Vol. 7: 11/8/76 2-CD Set
    Item #: JYCD61
    Volume Seven showcases the Jerry Garcia Band's November 8th, 1976 performance at Sophie’s in Palo Alto, California. Recorded by Betty Cantor-Jackson, the original master reels were only recently re-discovered, along with a few other reels dubbed the “Houseboat Tapes”, and have been remastered for this release. It was the year of this recording that Donna Jean and Keith Godchaux first joined up with the Jerry Garcia Band. Their addition, along with Ron Tutt on drums and bassist John Kahn, helped form what would be one of the most durable lineups of the Garcia Band. In fact, earlier that year Garcia commented "I haven’t been as happy with any little performing group since Old And In The Way in terms of feeling ‘this is really harmonious, this is what I want to hear.’”

    That harmonious vibe is especially present as well. Throughout the course of the evening, the band deftly melds gospel, rock, soul, and reggae to form their quintessential mid-70’s sound. As one astute critic pointed out, “More than any other Garcia band this one allows him room to run through all his guitar styles, often within a single song.” From the opening notes of “The Way You Do The Things You Do”, the band lock into a relaxed, but confident groove with Kahn & Tutt’s deep pocket providing the foundation for Jerry & Keith’s melodic exploration rounded out by Donna Jean’s soulful harmonies. The Hunter/Garcia penned “Mission in the Rain” and Dylan’s “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door” are particularly poignant and soulful while songs like “Midnight Moonlight”, “Tore Up Over You” and “Ride Mighty High” provide the sparks bringing balance to the evening. A 22+ minute “Don’t Let Go” stands out not only for its length, but for its exercise in dynamics which further showcases Garcia’s comfort not only with the band, but the freedom found in playing smaller rooms tailor-made for they type of music he was looking to create.

  • Jerry Garcia & Merl Saunders - GarciaLive Volume 6: 7/5/73 3-CD Set
    Item #: JYCD60
    Volume Six showcases Jerry Garcia and Merl Saunders’ July 5th, 1973 performance at the Lion’s Share in San Anselmo, CA. Recorded by Betty Cantor-Jackson just five days prior to the seminal performances celebrated on the Live at the Keystone series, GarciaLive Volume Six highlights a particularly adventurous evening at the Lion’s Share, a 200 capacity club known for its vibrant music scene which drew regulars like Janis Joplin, Phil Lesh, Van Morrison, and many others. The club’s intimacy can be felt throughout the recordings as the band, rounded out by John Kahn on bass and drummer Bill Vitt, frequently launch into extended improvisations fueled by the exchange of energy with the audience. The blistering “She’s Got Charisma” -> “That’s Alright, Mama”, which clocks in at over 31 minutes long, “starts off innocently in familiar blues territory, but very quickly deconstructs into fragmentation and exploration, defying both gravity and expectation at the same time” as writer Benjy Eisen eloquently describes in the releases’ liner note essay. The presence of an unidentified guest on trumpet during the band’s second set adds to the freedom and looseness found within the performance. The guest trumpeter is felt most during extended takes on “My Funny Valentine” and “Merl’s Tune,” both easy highlights of the entire evening.
