So here we have another Legion Of Mary issue, (see also The Jerry Garcia Collection, Vol. 1: Legion Of Mary (Us Release)issued in 2005), a band that never recorded a studio album, but nonetheless is a very welcome addition to Jerry's legacy. I have supplied below the track listing and timings where it is plain to see this band liked to stretch out a little with 10 tracks over 12mins and one at 25!

TRACK LISTINGS:

Boogie On Reggae Woman 18:04
The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down 7:56
Freedom Jazz Dance 13:40
Mystery Train 12:30
How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You) 11:06
You Can Leave Your Hat On 16:27
Neighbor, Neighbor 12:30
The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down 8:25
It's No Use 13:26
Valdez In The Country 13:23
I Second That Emotion 14:53
Wondering Why 24:53
Roadrunner 12:49

The band consisted of some regulars, the ever present John Kahn, good old Run Tutt, Jerry's keyboard friend Merle Saunders with Martin Fierro on sax and flute, and this is where a new element crept into this special line-up of the various JGB's. As well as so many JGB standards, there is a new side to this band, just listen to track 3, the instrumental Freedom Jazz Dance for instance.

This set warrants five stars in my opinion as this recordings from '74 enables us to have another glimpse of this band and I very much doubt if any other official recordings will surface!

I find it hard to believe that any fan of Jerry will not enjoy these recordings immensely, so grab yourself a copy. Packaging follows that of 1 & 2 with a booklet containing an essay by Daryl Norsen and some previously unpublished photos.

Volume 3 of this fine series catches the earliest concerts so far released, and it's interesting in that here the band sounds further from the Dead than on the later releases and far closer to something that one would call jazz. Here the band is called "Legion of Mary," and its distinctive sound might have something to do with the presence of Merl Saunders, both in terms of his keyboard work and his contribution to the vocals, but whatever the reason, it's great to be reminded of just how eclectic Jerry Garcia was as a musician. The Dead did occasionally cover "I Second that Emotion" and "How Sweet it is," but here there is a different feel to the sets, with Jerry calling forth a different, less virtuostic sound, one that better fits with the Martin Fierro's saxophone and with Saunders' very positive keyboards. The first track, "Boogie on Reggae Woman," isn't like anything heard on the previous two issues, and even purer, if you like, is "Freedom Jazz Dance" and "Valdez in the Country." It's fascinating too to hear "The Night they drove old Dixie down" taken at a very slow pace and enabling the group to find something in that Robbie Robertson song that the words perhaps imply but that in other versions, like Joan Baez's or The Band's own, tends to get lost in the more uptempo swing of these popular versions. I wasn't convinced at first, but it grows on you, especially with a version from each of the two nights being made available on this recording. The longest track (at 24+ minutes), "Wondering Why" is haunting, and the 16 minute jam on Randy Newman's "You can leave your hat on" is a delight. The sound is very good all things considered, and the relative unfamiliarity of the material (as associated with these musicians) makes this album a particularly attractive addition to this hopefully ongoing series.

This is a really extraordinary series of sets with Garcia soloing along side a very tight band alternating with saxophone lead. As usual when outside the Dead he shows really interesting side to his playing. It is a classic period for Garcia but he really does shine here. They are all cover versions including a few mot owns and my favourite is Boogie on, Reggae Woman but very few songs disappoint.
This is volume 3 and for me the best yet.

Been a Garcia/Dead fan since 1970 (Live/Dead was the first album I heard of theirs) and been on the bus ever since.
This 3x cd set is classic Garcia, but it's also classic Martin Fierro (he's the sax' player) and he gives ol Jer' a run for his money on damn near every track.
It's NOT a rock album regardless of what the band are playing, but funky, swinging and very loose jazz is the order of the day.
If you've already got the double Legion of Mary that came out on the old Garcia imprint then this makes a wonderful addition to the collection.
