Grateful Dead
Beautiful Jams Too

When I compiled the first disk of “Beautiful Jams,” which was nothing more than a lark, it never occurred to me that anybody more than a few online friends might enjoy it. But it seems to have been distributed rather widely, so as I have been listening to new and old favorites, I’ve kept an ear open for similarly beautiful moments, and it looks like I’ve got enough cream to try a second time.

Given the number of files I selected and then deleted, and the cuts I made all over the ones that made it, I’m doubtful there will be a third. So here’s hoping the sophomore effort is interesting as well.

NOTE: When burning, you will need to set the gap between tracks to zero, or the disk will exceed 80 minutes.

  1. Jam before Ship of Fools [6/23/74]
  2. Dark Star [2/26/73]
  3. Triad (with David Crosby — David and the Dorks) [12/15/70]
  4. Comes a Time [5/9/77]

  13. jam at the end of space [3/27/88]
  14. Dark Star [9/21/72]
  15. Stella Blue [7/18/76]
