Upgrade Bonanza: Jerry Garcia Band – Washington, DC (02/12/80)

Jerry Garcia Band
Lisner Auditorium – George Washington University
Washington, DC

Download Both Sources: FLAC/MP3

Source 1: shnid: 24683
MSC > C > CDR > WAV > SHN except for encore from previously circulated FOB Shure recording. Early Show Only
Comments: Smoking performance with a wicked kewl setlist. Epic Catfish soloing wails with the fat sound sound that makes me smile everytime. Guitar is prominent in the mix (as is some supercheezy early80s synth soloing). The levels on the source CDR were extremely low so I applied a +6 dB gain to the entire show prior to tracking, making sure there was no peaking/clipping after this relatively drastic increase in volume, bringing the recording levels in line with the aud encore splice as well.

*I spliced in the encore from the previously circulated Scott Jones FOB SHure recording (http://db.etree.org/shninfo_detail.php?shnid=11019).

  1. Cool! I had the first source, cool to have both shows. VG AUD lots of crowd, but not intrusive, Sitting in Limbo in just wonderful. With the second source im guessing there was a better mic placement. Jer was cranking out shows this tour. College Campuses were lucky!
