The Warfield becomes Church 19 Sep 2007
By Philip S. Wolf - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Along with it's companion CD set: "Jerry Garcia Band" this CD is the best example of solid and well performed 90's era live Jerry. This is Jerry, healthy, happy and leading a fine band at the Warfield Theater on Market Street, San Francisco in 1990. A live: "Cats Under the Stars" would have been worth the cover charge, but adding: "Like a Road","Gomorrah","Tears of Rage" and "Think" really makes this release something special!

In this edition of the Jerry Garcia Band, Mr. Garcia is joined by John Kahn on bass guitar (thank you for bringing him up in this mix) David Kemper on drums (Both David & John played with the acoustic Garcia Band as well) Jackie LaBranch & Gloria Jones: vocals and Melvin Seals on keyboards. This band is soulful on the ballads, and rocks like a big fun beast on the upbeat tunes.

There are comments regarding the sound quality. As an 80's tape-trader that has heard his share of audience cassettes, this CD sounds really warm, and that isn't easy to achieve in this digital age. With ten songs included on this and 77 minutes of this great music, this is essential Jerrymusic. Get this one whilst it's still available.
FIVE STARS !!!

Magic 12 Sep 2000
By mike lewandowski - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This Cd has tremendous power and energy. You hear Jerry pouring his heart out. The vocals are rough The guitar playing is out of this world. John Kahn is also the most unheard of bass player ever. His playing along side Jerry is fantastic. Check out Jerry's solos on Think and Tore up Over You. You will be shaking you head in disbelief. This is a treasure and a gift no doubt about it.

5 stars aren't really enough. 13 Jan 2001
By fan boy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Jerry in the Warfield Theater, that just about says it all. In a lot of ways it was a 2nd home to Jerry and it is there, arguably, that he was most comfortable and focused, at least in a concert setting.
This CD is incredible. It has the best of Jerry's emotional depth but lacks the psychedelic arrangements that lose so many non-deadheads.
There's some complicated leads, some amazingly quick picking, Jerry's innately soulful singing and the incredibly rich throaty soulful sound of Seals' Hammond Organ.
A lot of music get 5 ratings out of kindness, this one really is a true 5 out of 5.

WE NEED MORE JGB 11 May 2000
By BOB BOREMAN - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
THE MORE YOU YOU LISTEN TO JERRY'S SOLO EFFORTS, THE MORE YOU SEPARATE JERRY FROM THE DEAD. HE WILL EVENTUALLY BE REGARDED AS ONE OF THE TOP 3 ARTISTS OF OUR TIME. AS FOR THIS EFFORT, "TEARS OF RAGE" IS INCOMPARABLE. JUST LISTEN. THIS CD RANKS WITH "SHADY GROVE" (ALTHOUGH ENTIRELY DIFFERENT)AS ONE OF HIS BEST. HE HONESTLY BRINGS TEARS TO MY EYES. PLEASE LISTEN.

The Jerry Garcia Band In All Its Glory 2 Feb 2006
By Robbie Dorion - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I don't understand how people get off saying that this album is made of bad cuts and sounds like it was recorded in the crowd. Nothing could be farther from the truth, this is sonically better then anything i've ever heard from the dead, altho i love live recordings of the dead. this is something different, a hard rocking little bit of the Jerry Garcia Band. Lots of improvisation, but in a more structured and straight ahead rock sort of way then the usual dead stuff. I can't reccomend this album enough, its grrrrrrrreat!
