Jerry Garcia Band
« on: March 19, 2010, 10:42:19 AM »
JGB is something I know virtually nothing about and have listened to very little of.

Any advice on where to start/highlight shows/where to find them?
Phish makes me happy.  It's as simple as that.

I'm a fan of JGB live at Shoreline DVD.  As for other shows, I can't really contribute to which are better than others.

To add, I had a few friends in HS that had seen quite a few  :syf: shows at the time and they were adamant that in the 90's, JGB would outdo the Dead on any given day in their opinion.  Not sure if that was the general consensus, just relaying the thoughts from some serious Deadheads.

Instead of having to plan and save for your next vacation, why not work on creating a life you don't feel the need to escape from...

I suspect putin and trump have something to do with this
that's great. people are stupid.
My records are my media for music.

My advice is to start where it all started - Legion of Mary!!
I've been coming to where I am from the get go
Find that I can groove with the beat when I let go
So put your worries on hold
Get up and groove with the rhythm in your soul

Quote
Legion of Mary was an American rock band, formed by Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead and his friend and musical collaborator Merl Saunders.[1][2][3] The band lasted from July 12, 1974 to July 5, 1975. Its members included Garcia (guitar and vocals), Saunders (keyboards), John Kahn (bass guitar), Martin Fierro (saxophone and flute) and Paul Humphrey (drums). Ron Tutt replaced Humphrey as the band's drummer in February 1975.[4]

In their concerts, Legion of Mary played rock music that had an eclectic mix of influences, including blues, funk, reggae, rock and roll, and especially jazz.[5] Performances included extended improvisation solos, which Garcia made famous with his role in the Grateful Dead. Their only official recording was released on Rhino Records in August 2005, under the name The Jerry Garcia Collection, Vol 1: Legion of Mary; it is a two-disc set of live material.[6]

Not the first time I've heard people favoring 80's/90's JGB > 80's/90's GD....

And yeah, Legion of Mary is the shit.  The auds that I have heard have not been stellar but I may just have found the right ones.
