Comments from the original uploader:
I didn’t edit this show. There is a fade at the end of d2t04. I guess this covered a tape flip? Space continues through d2t05.
I felt no need to use wavmerge to retrack the original wavs.
There are unknown cassette generations – but my guess would be one generation.

A Little Slow Down


A friend of the site just sent me an incredible gift – 4 Terabytes worth of shows! That’s a whole lot of music to sort through. Instead of pouring through his lists of shows and comparing them to mine and coming up with a list of things I didn’t have I just asked him to send me all his Dylan, Van, Neil shows. It seemed easier to sort it out here rather than spend a month looking at lists (or maybe I just wanted the shows now!)  He also sent a lovely assortment of other artists as well.

I have them now and am trying to sort them. I’ll be unloading the hard drive he sent me and putting them on one of mine so that I can load his back up and send it to him. Call that the grand-daddy of all trades! Then I’ll be sorting through it all and trying to organize all my files over several hard drives.

As such I’m going to take a break from uploading shows for a little while. I still have a pretty big backlog of stuff that’s on Amazon but has yet been posted on the blog. What I’ve decided to do is slow the number of posts down to about one a day so that I don’t burn through that log too quickly.

It shouldn’t take too terribly long to get things sorted reasonably well. I’m thinking a couple of weeks, tops. After that I’ll get back to my regular speed. I now have a lifetimes worth of music to share. Enjoy.

Entire show with Clarence Clemons.
Final performance of “Hope It Won’t Be This Way, Always”.

Overall this is a surprisingly clean SBD/low analog generation without any major tape/mechanical glitches beyond the flips and very little hiss. The tape speed was slow requiring a pitch transposition of 1.0386.

From the original uploader:
It’s no coincidence that this compilation is dominated by James Booker and, to a lesser extent, Nicky Hopkins, two of the boogie-woogiest piano players the world has ever known. And since eight of the 15 tracks feature one or the other doing songs Jerry only played with them, many of these tracks selected themselves. None of the Booker tracks were played in any other incarnation of Jerry’s side projects. Since there are only three recordings over four nights with Booker, there was no way to get a wide variety of choices.

Of the other songs done by the JGB, only two, Get Out Of My Life Woman and I’ll Take A Melody (both written by Allen Toussaint), were done with any regularity. GOOMLW was an easy choice, taken from Jerry’s 10/4/86 first post-coma performance. There are better recordings of it but the electricity and warmth coming from the audience at this historic show made this one easy. Melody was also an easy selection. A 1980 Ozzie Ahlers song had to be included.

While Stagger Lee is a Garcia/Hunter composition, the story of Stagger Lee (and Billy DeLion) is deeply rooted in the rich tradition of New Orleans music. There are two versions here, one with the Grateful Dead and one from Jerry’s only solo show. Although What A Wonderful World was written by non-Louisianans Bob Thiele and George David Weiss, it was popularized by Louis Armstrong. So it’s inclusion is also necessary. There was no more famous New Orleans musician than Satchmo. The version included here is from Jerry’s 50th birthday.
