with John Kahn, Bill Kruetzman and Merl Saunders

Live at Pacific High Studio, San Francisco, CA; February 6, 1972. Very good FM broadcast.

The February 6, 1972 performance was the first official broadcast in the Bay Area of Jerry Garcia performing his own music, separate from the Grateful Dead. For many, it was the first chance that  non-club goers - including teenagers who made up much of the Grateful Dead’s audience - had to hear the Garcia/Saunders ensemble. Since KSAN continued to play tracks from it on the air for years, it also served as de facto publicity for Garcia/Saunders, since they would not release the Live At Keystone album until January 1974, almost two years later. And finally, the set was recorded at the very same studio where the Dead had recorded Workingman’s Dead just two years prior. -

Thank you so very much for sharing the Jerry side projects - incredible stuff! Living in Belgium, the chance of obtaining these shows myself would be scarce. Also thanks a lot for answering to my requests for the Jerry re-ups - much appreciated. As much as I like the Dead (and I do), I connect more with Jerry's solo stuff. To quote Jerry: oh boy, oh boy!
