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.

Amazon.com

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

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 !!!!!!

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."

That said...if it were going for a REASONABLE price...it's as essential as essential gets.

ALL of the studio albums PLUS a disc of outtakes. The favorites, for me, are the first album and "Reflections." The Dead performed "Bird Song" many, many times, but the version on Jerry's first solo album SHIMMERS with a beauty you won't find anywhere else. The "brother / sister" to this song is "Laughing" from David Crosby's If I Could Only Remember My Name. Same feel, same achingly sweet pedal steel from Jerry.

The second album ("Compliments") was pretty much TRASHED by critics on its release, but its charms are undeniable, especially on "Let It Rock," "The Hunter Gets Captured By The Game," and "Turn On the Bright Lights."

These albums didn't stray that far from what Jerry was doing with the Dead, and MANY of the songs found their way into "heavy rotation" on Dead set lists. It's a wonderful thing to own but it breaks my heart to see it selling for four hundred bucks...that's just WRONG.

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.

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.

As a callow youth I had the first Grateful Dead album and no others. I traded it for a Cannonball Adderley album, starting a whole new journey. I never really heard the Dead or Jerry Garcia much after that until years later when I picked up a copy of 'Bear's Choice' on cassette to see how they handled those blues tunes. Then, again after a period of some years, I bought the double JGB live album and left it at that. Recently though I have had a hankering for more of that sinewy and sinuous guitar and have started to buy some back catalogue Dead and now this boxed set. Wow - what have I been missing? A great deal has been said already about this boxed set and I don't have a lot to add other than it is some of the most joyous, plaintive, rousing, reflective (and any number of other descriptors) music you will ever hear collected into one place. The breadth is impressive and the sound is great and for once the extras on each disc are not filler (except perhaps for some of the choices on Disc 1). In addition to each disc's extras there is a whole other disc of Outtakes, Jams and Alternates that is astounding and could stand on its own as a single disc release. The version of 'I'll Take a Melody' on that disc is sublime. This is a collector's item that works for the non-collector and will give hours of pleasure.

I got this as a birthday present for my husband. He is a huge Jerry Garcia/Grateful Dead fan and just loves it. I appreciated the fact that the seller mentioned the small tear through the UPC code....but that was a flaw a diehard like my husband can live with...he just wanted to hear the music!

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!
"...I'll take a melody, and see, what I can do about it..."

This box set includes a significant proportion of previously unreleased tracks, many of which are stunning.

Bob Dylan nailed one of Jerry's special talents "Jerry Garcia could hear the song in all my bad recordings, the song that was buried there. So if I want to sing something different, I just bring out one of them Dead records and see which one I wanna do."

There are plenty examples here of Jerry taking somebody else's song and getting the perfect essence.
