Jerry Plays the Blues

jerry plays the blues

On this post, our old pal Nikos asks this question:

Need some advice: I contribute to a private blues blog, and have the thought of offering a compilation like Mat’s entitled “Jerry Garcia – Blues Guitarist”. Would welcome any suggestions of tracks with Garcia playing blues numbers, whether with the GDead or his own bands, pre-1984.

I thought I’d make a whole post of it as sometimes comments get buried after a day or so.  So friends, anybody got some suggestions?  What are some of the best versions of Jerry playing the blues?

Some Old File Factory Links

I was randomly looking at an old File Factory account of mine and discovered that some of my old uploads were still good and that they were no longer connected to any post.  So I’ve added the good links to the old posts.  Its mostly just MP3 links to shows I do have FLAC files for so I didn’t want to do a brand new post for each thing (not to mention they aren’t on my Amazon so who knows how long they’ll stay active) but I thought I’d share them with you here.

Average sounding audience recording.
Originally tracked on 3 discs, it easily fits on 2 80’s.
Original D2>D3 transition (drums>space) restored to seamlessness with SF5.
