    Got to a proper PC to look and downloaded today. No other option but 320 MP3. Sounds pretty good in the car today though.

    A little Shining Star, He Ain't Give You None and Ain't No Bread in the Breadbox in the mix tonight, among others.

    I wish they would have put recording dates in the liner notes on this. Ditto for the self-titled Jerry Garcia Band and How Sweet It Is... releases. My other complaint is that the cover is hideous. But I've got no complaints about the music on that release, it's nice to have some of the later additions to the JGB repertoire that are unreleased or infrequently released elsewhere.

    I think Garcia Live Vol 9 deserves a better plug than my sarcastic dig at clueless members who prompted the thread title change.

    Apart from the entire band blowing the intro to the first song, it's entirely fabulous. La La, Harder They Come, and Ain't no Woman like the One I've Got are my highlights.

    corry342 of "Lost Live Dead" fame has an article discussing how the 71-74 Garcia/Saunders/LOM setup was basically modeled on jazz groups, and it's since reading that I really 'get' those early configurations.

    They were basically a jazz group playing R&B/rock/funk/jazz standards. (Hearing Grant Green's 1971 record recently also helped carry this home for me.)

    My only gripe with Garcia #9 is that when Garcia is not playing leads, his volume is a bit high, especially vis-a-vis Saunders. But that's a minor issue.

    Otherwise. I listened to Shining Star for the first time recently, and was very happy with it.

    I was just looking at a GD/Star Wars meme you didn't post, Jerry as Yoda. I couldn't post it here. It says, "Know, I don't," "The roses, it must have been." But photoshopped Jerry as Yoda is just hideous.

    Edit: And earlier I wasn't saying you were sillier than me. I meant whoever is creating the memes. But if you are creating them, well ...

    LOL, no I am not creating them, but am certainly silly enough to post them.

    I was actually looking at something to post about that cover when you posted, but I realized it kind of supersedes all memes, doesn't it.

    I've heard this once before - It's never been out on CD, evidently there are no plans with the revival of Round Records, to put out Round's back catalog.



    I think they should put out everything Garcia was on, his solo on "Who Was John" is something else anyway, and he even sings on the last song.

    Maybe a subscription/ pre-order kind of deal, but I bet Donna Jean owns this album and its probably up to her.
     
  12. Wow, yes this should be available on CD. Hunter's albums, too.

    Apparently there is a thread on it here:
    Keith and Donna (Godchaux) album: why no CD?

    And Hunter's stuff has come out on CD, at least much of it, but it's definitely time for a reissue of his two discs on Round, which are basically Garcia productions with Bob singing. (well, Tiger Rose is, the other just features Garcia/Hart/Godchaux etc.)

    Yeah, but the CD versions of Tiger Rose and Tales of the Great Rumrunners are remixes with re-recordings of Hunter vocals done in 1988 or so, and Jack O' Roses, perhaps the most essential of Hunter's solo albums, has never been issued on CD.

    I thought it was just Tiger Rose that was the redone vocals. I think that might be a tough sell for Hunter, I thought I recalled a fairly recent interview where he talks about how bad the original vocals were.


    I agree Jack O Roses is the most essential, though it may be a harder to get a release due to absence of Garcia.

    I don't know if I count this as Classic JGB, but still a great set. I like the synth, it was 1980 after all, and love the Hunter cameo.

    Of course it is! In my mind it's the Martin Fierro factor that can take it out of the classic ranks.

  19. Absolutely essential. It's really a shame this one is not widely available, for the full version of Terrapin alone.

    Something about the way Hunter does the songs, even though they're not the 'original' they sound original to me.

    For anyone who doesn't know, there are a bunch of his concerts available on the archive.

    Plus this from MV on Youtube:

    I saw Hunter solo in Albany, NY at the Egg, years ago. I also saw him play during the set break at The Other Ones at the Pepsi Arena (formerly the Knick). He was solid.

    I discovered to my chagrin that he played a show really close to here on his last tour. (2013) That would have been something. Mickey Hart Band and NRPS have played the same venue in the last 5 years, but this was before I paid any mind to such matters.

    No, it has been since ~93, and partially that way a bit sooner. :)

    I've just gone through some periods, hard as it is to believe, where I didn't spend 6 hours + a day :yikes: paying attention to all matters Grateful Dead. (That's actually a more recent development, 90% down to my stumbling across this very forum.)

    So what's the consensus with Compliments?
    It's pretty Playboy After Dark swanky for Jerry, me thinks.
