Move Me Brightly: Celebrating Jerry Garcia’s 70th Birthday

move me brightly

Here’s a review more of you can get behind. A bunch of cool folks got together in 2012 to celebrate what would have been Jerry Garcia’s 70th birthday and threw a big musical party.

My memory of this is that it is good, but it must have not been mind-blowing because I haven’t listened to it since.

I’m also pretty sure Phil Lesh came for a couple of songs and then took off because he had his own gig at his own place that same day.

Note: d2tr04 How Sweet It Is may or may not be from this show depending on
if it was an early or late show. It is very clear the tune is the last song
of the night as Jerry says, �See you all later� and you can hear people in
the first rows ask for an encore. There is a tape splice before the song,
which may indicate a reel change or a filler to the DAT source.
The Jerry Site notes that What�s Going On is cut and this version is not
and does not list How Sweet It Is nor does it list the d1tr01 Instrumental.
This is a more complete source that what previously circulates.

From the uploader:

Here’s the deal… There are multiple versions of this 12/31/73 show in circulation. The most common (and the only one that I’ve seen) is supposed to be from the Pre FM reels (which were most likely damaged, keep reading). On the heavily circulated version there were numerous flaws, most were either digital noise or clipping. A new transfer was just done from a Reel To Reel FM Master. This new FM master did not have any of the flaws that were present on the common “Pre FM” version, but FM Master was of slightly lesser quality.

The solution? Small portions of the new FM master were spliced into the higher quality version when there was digital noise, clipping, etc. Those defects have now been eliminated. The splicing was done well, at most points it’s unnoticeable, but there were a couple of splices that didn’t line up perfectly, one of those would be the splice that provides the intro to Liz Reed. Either way, this show sounds much better than it did before, and it’s the best source I know of to be in circulation.

Here are some of the other edits that were done… There was digital noise in some of Bill Graham’s band intro, this was spliced in OK from the other copy. Various count-ins were slightly clipped, but are now spliced in seamlessly. These are usually when KSAN DJ’s talk, those short station ID’s have also been put back in. The KSAN announcer’s (Tom Donahue) count-in at New Year’s was similarly clipped, this has been restored, clipped notes at the beginning of Jessica have also been restored. There were many other additional edits, but you get the picture.
