3.0 out of 5 stars Some good Jerry Garcia tunes
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.

So there you have it, 6 CDs of amazing music (for me anyway). The JGB line up here now has so many albums out, (Jerry Garcia Band, How Sweet It Is,Garcialive 2: August 5th 1990, Lunt Fontanne New York City October 15-30 1987, Lunt Fontanne New York City October 31 1987), however this is another worthy addition to one of his classic line-ups. The icing on the cake for me with this set though is the addition of the 2 Weir Wasserman sets with Bob Weir playing acoustic guitar with some brilliant bass in the background by the second Bob (Wasserman). His vocals are so good with some lovely accompaniment - great to hear Easy To Slip and Heaven Help The Fool from his album Heaven Help The Fool [Us Import]. Another real highlight is his interpretation of the Beatles Blackbird.

As for the JGB, what can I really say that hasn't been said before - this band gel as if they were meant to be together, I would say tight but that has always appeared inappropriate way to describe the JGB. There are so many highlights, I wouldn't like to single them out, but it was good to hear Van's And It Stoned Me - well didn't it always!!!

Packaging is 6 card sleeves held in a tight slipcase that isn't much thicker than a CD case. They manage to cram in 16 page booklet as well which contains some photos and a 6 page essay by Blair Jackson. So all in all a darn good package with some good deals still about.
