Jerry Garcia & John Kahn – If You Could See My Heart

Jerry Garcia & John Kahn acoustic duo 1982
If You Could See My Heart
(plus bonus material from 1984-85)

Download FLAC: Amazon Drive

Constraints:

  • SBD sources only for sonic consistency and suspension of disbelief
  • Excluded 4.10.82 for consistency as it is Garcia solo
  • Excluded 6.5.82 Oregon State Prison (falsely accused of being 5.5.82) because it’s the one everyone’s heard
  • Bonus material is from the few 1984-85 SBDs, including some material not played in ’82 and some worthy repeats
  • There are several good tapes from 1986 and the performances are often good, but that’s a project for another day

Caveats:

  • The source recordings vary in quality from great to decent.
  • Garcia & Kahn recordings were made with some audience presence mixed in

Thanks:
