The Jerry Garcia shows are okay; nothing special for that period. But the Bob Weir shows are just mediocre. Weir sounds good on some of the songs, but Wassermen is really self-absorbed, and his bass doesn't add much. Get it for the Jerry tunes, and ignore Bob's stuff.

HASH(0x8f56ecf0) out of 5 stars PRIME GARCIA BAND WITH "BOB AND ROB" A GREAT "EXTRA" 18 Dec. 2013
By Stuart Jefferson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
"I think there's more of a spiritual focus to what we're doing now. We're all more serious about what we're doing." Melvin Seals.

This is another treat for Garcia fans. And adding the Weir/Wasserman duo makes this worth snapping up immediately. Garcia's vocals are a little rough in the beginning, but he seems to find his vocal chops after the first couple of songs and never looks back. Weir/Wasserman are the proverbial cherry on the top of things with great versions of "Fever", "K.C. Moan", and "Desolation Row" from 9-5-89. And Wasserman shows just how good a double bass player he is with his solo pieces scattered throughout both sets.

But as for the Jerry Garcia Band--they play with a fire and intuitiveness that comes only after playing together for so long--talk about a tight band. Garcia is aided vocally by Gloria Jones and Jaclyn LaBranch, and their soulful swing mixes well with Garcia's vocals. As usual there's a few tunes that the band always brings out--"Deal", "The Harder They Come", and others. But check out the first version of " The Harder..." that begins Set Two from 9-5-89. We've all heard this tune many times from Garcia's bands, but this version is a corker--all swinging, and jaunty--listen to the very rhythm of this song, there's something special going on. Garcia's vocals are great and Melvin Seals marimba-like solo is a thing of beauty and swing--a true early highlight.

And listen to "Let It Rock" from 9-6-89 for some great Garcia guitar. But that brings up another point. His guitar work across both evenings is close to pretty awesome. He throws out molten leads that belie the fact that he was "still learning" how to play again after his illness. And then listen to "Evangeline" for another good example of what those lucky people (and now us) witnessed that night. Garcia solos like the years have dropped off him while the band just cranks it out. But the real sneaker here is "That Lucky Old Sun", an old song from the 40's. This is a real beauty that sneaks up on you--the vocals, Garcia's guitar solo--wow.

And having "Bob and Rob" is a good addition--their duets stand in contrast to the band's sound. Weir doesn't rely on Dead tunes, but goes his own way, bringing out songs from his solo albums and some well chosen cover tunes, all with his own vocal style and ear for different chords. Listen to Weir tap out the rhythm on the body of his guitar on "Fever", while Wasserman plays some pretty hip jazz-like notes. "Victim of the Crime" has a great Weir vocal--he's almost growling out the words using his guitar for accent. Robert Johnson's "Walking Blues" and Weir's "City Girls" are great versions, as is "Blackbird" (all from 9-6-89) along with "When I Paint My Masterpiece". And that's just a few of the great tunes this duo reconstructs. Plus we get to really hear Weir's fingerpicking on a bunch of these tunes.

Obviously Garcia and/or Weir fans should get this box set sooner rather than later. There's great music all over the place. And the contrast between the duo and the band adds real depth and an organic feel to these sets. And the sound, taken from remastered soundboard tapes, is very good--clean and open sounding. But there's a disclaimer (in very small print) about inherent sonic imperfections, but it's nothing to worry about unless a few tape imperfections bother you. But I wish the tapes were in better (near perfect?) condition. "Looks Like Rain" on Disc One sounds a little hincky--Weir's vocals sound like they came from a bad vinyl record about 1 1/2 minutes or so into the tune. And Garcia's vocals are a little rough in a couple of spots. But don't let a few imperfections ruin good sets of tunes. In some ways sound-wise, this set reminds me of the soundboard series the Grateful Dead released a few years ago, before discontinuing it--what you hear on the tapes is what you get. The discs slip inside cardboard sleeves with some cool graphics on them and track list on the backs. The booklet has a nice essay on Garcia during this period and how Weir and Wasserman came to play together, along with a few period photos. The usual recording info is also here. Everything fits in a cardboard slipcase with more cool graphics.

This is an unexpected treat for fans of W/W and the Garcia Band--six discs of rockin', joyful tunes, with W/W adding their own spin to Weir originals and covers. If you've heard the JGB two disc set from '91 you have an idea of what's here. Get this and sit back, and once again take a nice, long, pleasant trip with Garcia and Weir to that place only they know about. This is like a nice early Christmas present from old friends.

And speaking of presents (especially for fans of The Dead like me--1967--has it really been that long?), for a look at Garcia's other band the Grateful Dead, check out two recent releases, "Live Acoustic Family Dog 1970", and "Rare Cuts and Oddities-1966". The acoustic set is from 1970 and has the added bonus of a mini Pigpen set within the regular set by the band. It's not quite acoustic, with Garcia strapping on his electric guitar later in the set. But there's some fine music here like "Don't Ease Me In", "Friend Of The Devil", "Candyman", "Katie Mae", "Bring Me My Shotgun", and others. The "Rare Cuts" is just that--rehearsals, studio demos, and live tracks--all from 1966. Some of the tempos are rushed, and the song choices ("Gangster Of Love", "Don't Mess Up A Good Thing") show the band looking for their own sound. And the sound certainly isn't pristine. But Deadheads will recognize early versions of tunes The Dead played over the years like "Big Railroad Blues", "I'm A King Bee", and "Caution (Do Not Stop On Tracks)". Both albums are worth hearing if you want to hear The Dead in an acoustic setting, and/or very early on. Both (at least as I write this) are available from the band's website.

And if you're interested in the Grateful Dead there's two pretty good books that you might want to check out. The first is "The Grateful Dead FAQ", by Tony Sclafani, which answers in depth many questions about most anything to do with the band. Some of the info fans will know, some info will be new or a welcome addition to what fans already know. The second book is "Dancing With The Dead-A Photographic Memoir 1964-1974", by Rosie McGee. Don't let the title fool you. This book tells her personal story with the band and includes many previously unseen photos from those ten years or so. Both fill in further pieces of The Dead puzzle. Any Deadhead should check these out. Cheers.

I got this as a gift and must say it underwhelms me. The sound quality is really poor especially for a band that prided itself on getting the BEST possible sound out of it's equipment. The sound stage is so thin it almost sounds like mono...which it is not. To be sure there are some smoking Jerry tracks on this release...see Deal as an example. I have a great deal of JGB stuff and this is one release that won't be getting a lot of listening time. Too bad too as 1989 was a great year for Garcia and for The Grateful Dead.

HASH(0x8f57118c) out of 5 stars Ladies and Gentlemen, Back From The Dead-> Jerry Garcia!!! 18 Dec. 2013
By zoom zoom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
RECORDED: Sept.5, 1989 Hartford Civic Center, Hartford CT & Sept. 6, 1989 Nassau Coliseum, Uniondale NY. COVER ART: Stanley Mouse. CD LINER NOTES: Blair Jackson (Excellent I might add). 6 Cds housed in individual cardboard mini sleeves. All cased in a stunningly beautiful outside box. Absolutely Amazing Artwork and packaging.- Let me start off by saying, if anybody has any bad things to say about this release-> They are NUTS!!!" Mastered from the sound board recordings. Every note and every vocal from all of the singers and players are all there. The sound in my opinion is very good. Band members include the classic later day JGB line up. John Kahn (bass) David Kemper (drums) Melvin Seals (organ) Gloria Jones and Jacylyn Labranch (Back-up Vocals) and of course, Jerry. Garcia's voice is in pretty good shape on this run, and his guitar is definitely up to A1 standards. The band is as tight as ever! Singing and playing with much passion and enthusiasm. Set lists that are chocked full all your favorite Garcia Band standards and covers. You can feel the "Love In The Air" all through the performances... Bob Weir (acoustic guitar) and Rob Wasserman (stand up bass) are the opening acts for both of the September 5th & 6th shows. Singing and playing like they are in complete control. Comanding your attention in both opening sets. Fitting right into the bill like a pair in a "full house" in these 2 incredible nights of music! Needless to say that "I love this release". Simply Outstanding. So if your a "serious head" or just a "casual fan" who likes good music, you will be quite pleased indeed! Absolutely 5 STARS!!!!! Shine On and Let It Rock!

HASH(0x8f571258) out of 5 stars JGB Hartford Sound 30 Dec. 2013
By Michael W. Noll - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The sound on the Hartford show for Jerry Garcia Band sounds awful. Something is messed up with Jerry's vocal mic for the 1st couple of songs/half of the show. Who signed off on this release? I understand the GD/Jerry did things different every night and I welcome new shows. They also recorded every move they made. I think they should have picked another night of the tour instead of this one. This Jerry set should have never made the cut. The Bob Weir and Rob Wasserman sets sound great as does the J.G.B. Nassau.

HASH(0x8f571720) out of 5 stars Hartford Show sounds scratchy 23 Dec. 2013
By Scott M. Rywolt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
For something that is supposed to be a soundboard recording, the Hartford show (which was the main reason I purchased this box set and 2 others for gifts) is very scratchy, like a bad speaker. It's mostly from the vocals. There are a couple of spots where it skipped like a scratched record (even though they were brief skips). I was expecting better for what I paid for this. Most of the rest of this box set sounds great. There is a lot of energy in these shows. I was at the Hartford show and I remember it as being one the most intense concerts I have ever had the pleasure of attending. I'm just a little bummed with the quality of disc 2.
