This is one of the only candid interview tapes of Jerry in circulation. It starts with a journalist named Greg
Harrington asking some very intelligent questions about all types of topics and Jerry is very warm and generous during the interview. Later a few heads join the party and the tape keeps rolling. At one point someone sparks a jay and Jerry is inclined to smoke up with his new friends. What ensues is just hilarious as Jerry and company get progressively more stoned. This tape is a rare glimpse into the wonderful mind of Jerry Garcia. After listening to it, you will have a much better understanding of what it must have been like to be a member of the Grateful Dead, what was the process or lack of it for the band and who really is Jerry and what is his trip?

This is a wonderful part of my collection. I have seen a copy converted by someone else, but I have taken the time to convert a high bias 3rd GEN cassette to digital.

Note: Take special note to track 9 on disk 1. I Hope you enjoy Jerry’s opinion on the matter of tapping shows.
