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.

I wanted to give this set a "five star" rating based on the sound and performance but both sets (early show and late show) could have easily fit on two cd's instead of three. The only explanation for this must a marketing gimmick to charge more money for a 3 cd set. Too bad!!
Luv Ya Jerry!! More music and less marketing gimmicks!!

The high points of the rest of the set are on the third disc, where Robert Hunter sits in. I'm a fan of his lyrics, of couse, but also of his solo work, and it's nice to hear the two old boys together on this album. Tiger Rose and Promontory Rider are rare enough to hear from Jerry, and work well here.
This was the year of Reckoning and Dead Set and it's amazing to think that, in the Spring before those shows, Garcia was exploring a parallel course with such a different paradigm. There is only one Dead song on this, the regular first set closer Deal (Sugaree, Catfish John and Mission In The Rain are from solo work), the rest given over to JGB's usual covers (Russian Lullaby, Simple Twist of Fate, The Harder They Come), ending with, in my opinion, one of the most successful of Jerry's many covers, Dear Prudence.
You know what you're getting here, even if it's on yet another 'series' (wither Pure Jerry)? Sound quality is great and the performances are warm, human and above all Garcia. Recommended, although not if you're new to this lark.

The Harder They Come
This great gig is the first release from the new invigorated Garcia Legacy. The personnel apart from Jerry are the ever present John Kahn on bass with Ozzie Ahlers on keyboards and a young Johnny De Foncesca on drums. The set list is pretty standard offering a wide selections of composers with the self-penned songs dotted about. The recording here is first class with careful mastering from 24 track recordings. The band are relaxed (wasn't it always so with the JGB) yet get quite spirited at times such as That's All Right & Deal on CD2. A bonus with this set is Robert Hunter coming in for 2 of his songs, Tiger Rose & Promontory Rider.
I hope that this series does not peter out like the excellent Pure Jerry series where (as far as I am aware) 12 releases were planned, but only eight released. It is interesting to note that in the thanks on this release, it looks as if Jerry's real family are looking after business now.
If you enjoy this gig, then I would highly recommend After Midnight: Kean College 28/2/1980 which is another excellent gig with the same line-up recorded on 28th Feb 1980.
The packaging is a fold out digipak with a slot for the 8 page booklet. The booklet is informative providing a potted history of the JGB with some comments from Ozzie Ahlers from an interview only last year. A minor criticism is that the print is simply too small!
For me even without the Grateful Dead, Jerry produced some joyous work, and this is a prime illustration. I reckon most people who love music would find much to enjoy on these discs - I can say little more really!
