  1. It is a rare treat to have this much previously un-circulated Garcia Saunders show up all at once. I am listening to the version of Sunshine of My Life right now which is just superb. You really knocked one out of the park this time Mat! Thanks so much!!!

  2. Yes, its become happy Jerry days for all of us. The big question is, did you get any of the ’66 Dead practice sessions and did you get the Clementine takes with Jerry and Phil? Being a child of the 60’s, that’s what really makes my heart sing.

  3. It’s pretty easy to be patient thanks to all the killer shows you’ve already shared with us this week. I’m thrilled to see the 9/6/73 concert get posted today. That’s one I had on cassette years ago and this version sounds infinitely cleaner. Thank you once again!

  4. Yes, I think 9/6/73 and 10/11/73 may be the gems of the bunch. I can’t thank you enough for posting those.

    Curiosity got the best of me so I wandered over to Archive and streamed the GD 3/9/66 file. It has two Pigpen songs I had never heard before. One is not even named (but Jerry and Pig are phenomenal on it) and the other is Who Do You Love which I don’t think had appeared before except in 1972 live performances. It’s tremendous as a 1966 tune. If you are able post that you will have my eternal gratitude.
