Jerry Garcia fed an insatiable appetite for music in the '70s, a decade when the Grateful Dead released seven studio albums and three live collections. Simultaneously, he embarked on a solo career that, like the Dead's '70s records, alternately attempted to harness and indulge Garcia's free-flowing inspiration. All Good Things collects the five studio albums he recorded between 1972 and 1982 in one thoroughly annotated, generously enhanced box set. Garcia as a solo artist was most inspired when indulging his eclectic whims--the entirety of his almost-all-alone debut, 1972's Garcia, a then-revelatory acoustic-swing version of Irvin Berlin's "Russian Lullaby," and any number of easy-flowing jams)--and least interesting when in the sway of contemporaneous rock and R&B. Garcia wasn't so much a guy who honed albums as he was a musician who loved to play, whether the tapes were rolling or not. The producers of All Good Things take full advantage of his prolificacy, fleshing out each of the individual titles with bonus material and capping the box with a richly rewarding 12-song CD of outtakes and alternate versions. --Steven Stolder

Product Description

One of the most celebrated figures in all of rock 'n' roll, beloved Grateful Dead lead guitarist, vocalist, and eternal good-will ambassador Jerry Garcia pursued an eclectic array of folk, bluegrass, roots-rock, Motown and R&B-influenced side projects throughout his storied career. Both acoustic and electric, solo and jamming with the Jerry Garcia Band, his albums apart from the massive output of Dead releases capture the diverse talents of an incomparable music legend. Spanning 1972-1982, this historic boxed set collects Garcia's five solo studio albums - all newly remastered and expanded - plus a must-have bonus disc filled entirely with previously unreleased gems from the vaults.

Jerry Garcia is one of a kind. We will not see the likes of him again. These six discs presented in this set are a perfect companion to Rhino's "Golden Road" Box Set, which compiled the complete Warner Brothers recordings of the Grateful Dead. Not only are the original albums included, we are also treated to studio jams of The Dead performing "Orpheus" and The Garcia Band's 16 minute jam on Roy Hamilton's "Don't Let Go". To round off this excellent collection are his unreleased recordings from his brief but inspiring encounter with Gospel music. Hearing him cover The Mighty Clouds of Joy's "Mighty High" is a major high point. He is helped out by Donna Godchaux and Maria Muldaur on Dorothy Love Coats' "I Will Be With Thee" and did the dickens out of Dorsey Burnette's "Magnificent Sanctuary Band" giving Donny Hathaway a run for his money. The disc that walks off with the grand prize however, is Cats Under The Stars. Hands down this is JG at his level best. Run For The Roses is close at hand, and then the Compliments album shows his love and respect for New Orleans R&B with Allen Toussaint doing the horn arrangements. Russian Lullabye and Back Home In Indiana captures Django Rheinhardt & The Hot Club Of France, although the former is given a more traditional feel than the latter. It's all great music and it only serves to show how much Jerry contributed to every genre of music and how much we all miss him. When I look at his pictures in the booklet, it makes me wish to my heart I would have known him.

If you like Garcia this is a must have for the unreleased bonus material alone .Better late than never, some of this stuff is unreal!!! Mystery Train/Orpheus/Fennario/Dear Prudence.If you bought this thru the dead net you got 2 extra discs which included a T.L.E.O. jam that has Jerry at his peak.Get them if you can.LET IT ROCK !!!!!!

Now that I am retired I have had more time for things like music etc. This CD set is fantastic. I have listened to the set many times over. The appreciation I have know is so much more than decades ago for me. In fact Garcia, the Beatles, Credence all have invoked old and new thoughts for me. Back to this set. I like it so well I am going to purchase a set for my 29 year old son.

5.0 out of 5 stars YES!!! November 4, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This new boxed set is absolutely spectacular. I have been a JGB/Dead fan for a long time, and this is the most fantastic treat. Get ready to hear all your favorites plus SO much more. The previously unreleased outtakes and jams are all beautiful. A LOT of thought went into the production of this album. In a world where compilation albums and boxed sets have flooded the market solely for profit, this album stands out as an album put together by people who are obviously PASSIONATE about Jerry. I have been listening to it virtually non-stop for the past 24 hours since I got it. I could say so much more, but trust a longtime deadhead when I say trust me... get this album. You will not be disappointed. "All Good Things" promises to please many old fans and make a whole lot of new ones.

5.0 out of 5 stars That's the Touch I Like! May 1, 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
After so many hours spent following, listening to, trading for, thinking about, writing on, and in all ways pursuing Garcia's music, this collection pools a tear of joy, makes me laugh out loud as the hair on my arms stand straight up and confirms what I have always known in my heart: this man had no peer.
The remastering is superb, the plentiful outtakes are a treat, the photos are precious, and the two bonus CDs (one w/ more outtakes and one w/ live songs from '77) you get from ordering it directly from [...] make this a must-have collection!

5.0 out of 5 stars Garcia revisited November 24, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I bought this last May on my birthday, I didnt have any of Jerry's studio stuff on disc, and had waited because I learned of this release. I have to say it was more than worth it, if your trying

to decide on whether or not to get it, dont hesitate, pick it up.

The 6th cd is a nice extra.

5.0 out of 5 stars RHINO Does It Again - One Long Symphony - a true joy October 29, 2004
Format:Audio CD
There really isn't enough to be said about the magnificent job RHINO has done with the entire Grateful Dead and Garcia catalogs.

You will most definitely be satisfied with yet another prime example of a "generous portion". A large dose of unreleased material that's Jerry Garcia.

Top-notch sound quality like none before!

Rhino, Jerry Garcia and The Grateful Dead

together again

on tour........

5.0 out of 5 stars All Great Things August 30, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This collection showcases the variety of Jerry's work, whether it's the a capella section of Mississippi Moon, the gritty rock of I'll Forget You, the rebellious tones of Loser, all combined with studio jams ranging from Jerry's signature psychedelic electric to his down to earth acoustic bluegrass. All five of his solo albums are included plus an album of outakes and alternatives. And the solo albums aren't the same we've been rocking to for years, each is packed with additioinal bonus footage that will satisfy the pickiest of dead heads. This package is a must have for any one who loves and appreciates the music of Jerry Garcia.

5.0 out of 5 stars ESSENTIAL, but not a "4 new from $378.09" purchase.
If Jerry Garcia were alive today, he'd be sickened by the fact that this box set is out of print and being SCALPED at "4 new from $378.09."

A great gift for a Dead fan and a Jerry Garcia fan. My son is both although he enjoys Jerry's ventures away from the Dead much more. This is a good collection.
