Editorial Reviews

The first release from the newly-launched Garcia Live series features a recording from the historic Capitol Theatre in Passaic, New Jersey on March 1, 1980. The band performed an early and a late show on this evening, as was common at the time. The shows were originally multi-tracked on a 24-track mobile rig for WNEW's broadcast of the early show.

The band, which included Garcia on guitar and vocals, partner in crime John Kahn on bass, Ozzie Ahlers on Keys and Johnny de Foncesca on drums at the time, was wrapping up a three-week East Coast run with the performances on this evening. Highlights including a take on the Jimmie Rodgers penned rave-up, "That's All Right," an early show encore of "Deal" and a rollicking version of "That's What Love Will Make You Do" show Jerry and the band loose and fluid at the end of the tour.

While 1980 isn't really considered a standout year for Jerry's main band (though the awesomeness of 'Reckoning' is not up for debate), the short-lived incarnation of the JGB featured here--with John Kahn on bass, Johnny de Foncesca on drums, and Ozzie Ahlers on keys and backup vocals--is both tight and exploratory, with energetic-yet-laid-back grooves that are nearly impossible to listen to while staying completely still.

This show features quite a bit of setlist crossover with the excellent 'After Midnight: Kean College 2/28/80,' which took place two nights before, with Jerry's lyricist Robert Hunter once again joining the band during the second set to sing "Tiger Rose" and "Promontory Rider." Still, there are more than enough differences here to warrant a purchase for Jerry fans, especially the stellar, jammed-out versions of Irving Berlin's "Russian Lullabye" and The Beatles' "Dear Prudence." Nearly every song here is over 8-minutes long, and the band is precise and on-point throughout the show. Jerry's voice is soulful and energetic--just check out his bluesy, intense vocals on the killer 16-minute "Simple Twist of Fate." His voice very rarely sounded this good again.

The recording--taken from the original 24-tracks--is pristine, allowing the listener to fully appreciate Jerry's constant interweaving of his guitar in and around the keyboard and bass parts. Anyone who calls Jerry's guitar-playing "lazy noodling" should take a listen to just how intricate and beautifully-played his work is here. If there's a negative at all here, it's the aforementioned issue of the setlist's similarity to 'Kean College.' But most Deadheads should know by now that you can never judge a show by the setlist.

First off and foremost, the sound quality here is stunning. The two tracks Hunter sings are worth it alone. There is no booklet or liner notes. It is a good relaxing listen.
It should be noted that if purchased direct through Garcia website, you have the option of getting a bundle that includes a shirt and poster.
The poster is limited to 600 and is signed and numbered. This is the real collector's item.

It's tough to give 3 stars to anything Jerry Garcia Band. If you are collecting all the live recordings you can get your hands on then by all means buy this. This is better music than 98% of music out there, and my review is not really for you.

Rather, my review is meant for someone trying to decide between the different recordings for their 1st or 2nd Jerry Garcia Band purchase, which is more likely the people reading reviews on Amazon. If this is the case, than I strongly recommend considering buying 'Let It Rock' first because Nicky Hopkins is just awesome on the piano on that recording. The band went through several different keyboard/piano players and this has a huge affect on the 'sound' of each recording.

Once you have 'Let It Rock' I would strongly recommend the self-titled Jerry Garcia Band or the GarciaLive Volume 2. Both feature Melvin Seals on the organ/keyboards and the sound is just way more up my alley.

I really found Ozzie Ahlers' 'spacey' synthesizer-heavy keyboard sound a big distraction on this record, and the same goes for the Kean College Record.

Its easy to give 5 stars to every Jerry Garcia Band recording and be done with it, but I'm trying to help out someone trying to decide among them. One man's opinion. :)

I don't know about you-but oftentimes I am somewhat disappointed by archive releases because of poor sound/recording quality. This tends to be true of some of the releases of shows by jazz performers. The music may be memorable but you have to listen past the limits of the recording medium. Not the case here. These shows, according to the notes, were mixed from 24 track tapes done under the auspices of the radio station which was broadcasting the shows. These discs have wonderful sound. You are there with Jerry and his band on that night for two shows. Jerry's long-time writing partner, Robert Hunter, puts in an appearance for two songs in the second show( Tiger Rose and Promontory Rider). Garcia has his wonderful way with a diverse range of material and styles here in this show, as he always did over the years with his own band apart from the Grateful Dead. Generally Garcia band shows are more relaxed, less expectation heavy than Dead shows, and this one is no exception, but don't let that fool you-the playing here will astound you with its depth of creative brilliance. I can't imagine any fan of real music not enjoying what Garcia and company can do to a soul, reggae, folk, rock or showtune. Irving Berlin's "Russian Lullaby" is simply amazing in this show. There are several other extraordinary standouts( have a listen and see which ones) but all the performances are worthy of repeated listening. Now that Jerry Garcia is no longer with us here in real time these releases become a way for older fans to relive those days when we saw him perform and they give younger listeners a chance to see what all the fuss was about. The best archive releases should be of shows that are significant and these two shows were definitely significant. The amazing sound is a plus.
