Single Disc (2 tracks, 19:58)
01. Banter & Tuning (1) (2) [1:03]
02. Save Mother Earth [18:44] [0:10]

– Mono recording, hissy but basically very nice. The Jerry Site lists a soundboard, but I’d guess it’s an upfront audience recording. I don’t know anything else about the lineage.
– Track 1 banter (1) @ 0:10: “Hey Merl, you wanna do that tune in ‘G’? Get spaced out a little?”
– Track 2 banter (2) @ 0:30: JG: “What’s that?” MS: “I don’t know.” JG: “Hey, c’mon man, the orange one, now it’s the orange one, whatever that is. Amber. That one. Do away with it. That’s the exit light. It’s plenty. No, no, man. Thanks. Photo field [?].”

  1. It seems funny to come back to this tiny show but here we are.

    Sorry for the absence the moving into the new digs went rougher than expected. I’m back now but it will likely be a slow transition to full speed.

  2. Good to see that you are back. You had me worried…What would i do without this show page? I shudder to think of it.

    1. It was one of those things where we switched the internet on at one house and switched it on at the other, but at the other it wasn’t working. So we had to call a tech and he just now got it fixed. Plus other things like water flooding our bathroom.

  3. It is the little things like the Internet and flooded bathrooms that add spice to daily life. I miss Jerry but what a great legacy of recordings remain.
