consistent with the comment in Deadlists that this may be from a different date

Deadlists COMMENTS
Jerry Garcia, acoustic guitar; Marshall Leicester, banjo; Robert Hunter, bass?. This performance took place at the Boar’s Head Coffeehouse, located in the upstairs loft of the Carlos Bookstall.
(1) Robert Hunter acapella. This set and the 01/??/62 Burlingame set also circulate together as “Garcia, Hunter and Albin ’62.” It can be argued that the ‘room ambience’
and recording quality of both tapes are identical; they -sound- like they were recorded at the same time.

RECORDINGS 25 A?. Audience recording, made on reel-to-reel by Rodney Albin, possibly from mics placed on stage.
Bolshevik In Hell may not be from the same date.

No One to Stand by Me is Late Last Night When Willie Came Home
Bolshevik in Hell is The Ballad of Harry Pollitt

  1. The picture you’ve attached would make me wonder if Garcia isn’t playing the banjo rather than guitar as the write-up suggests. Pretty neat though as this is the earliest tape I’ve heard of old (young) Jerry. So thanks for posting this one!

  2. OK, I understand. Great photo anyway, never seen that one before and it’s clearly from that “beatnik” coffeehouse era. I’m still thinking he could be the banjo player based on the style of playing. Regardless, this show is a fun listen from 55 years ago!
