A New Look At Jerry Garcia Pre-Dead Years With 4CD Before The Dead Set

There are few individuals who have helmed some of Rock’s legendary band incarnations that garner as much intense visitation as Jerry Garcia has received. The Grateful Dead is today revered as one of the great Rock bands in the history of the style. And so it’s without surprise that given the intensity that Garcia visited upon his search for great music, there are still albums being introduced that bear his involvement.

On May 11, Caroline Records will release a 4CD collection of early, pre-Grateful Dead music assembled from wherever they were recorded. This Jerry Garcia – Before The Dead box will contain 84 songs that find Jerry Garcia exploring Folk music in a variety of venues including a birthday party.

With this set, one would be able to fit within the musical soul of Garcia and sense his evolution to what would become one of Rock’s greatest stories.

As an extra note: there are two Grateful Dead packages readying for release. The first is from Real Gone Music and is called Grateful Dead: Road Trips, Vol. 4 , No. 2 April Fools’ ’88, which is scheduled for June 1.

The other is a 140g-weight black vinyl 5LP reproduction of Cornell 5/8/77 slated for reissue on May 8 (date-released as a sort of respect and celebration of the historic date itself).

3CD Jerry Garcia Band On Broadway: Act One – October 28,1987 Planned For June

Between October 15 and October 31 of 1987, The Jerry Garcia Band, staged an ambitious two-week set of Broadway shows at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre (still in existence and doing great service) in NYC. With an avalanche of songs, incredible experiences, and pure Jerry Garcia magic, these shows have already found their way on sets in one way or another. (For more information on these sets of shows, one would need to talk with Lindsay Planer, who is a part of the MusicTAP family. Other than those involved, there are no one more knowledgeable of these shows – or anything Dead-related – than he! He is matchless.)JGB at Lunt Fontanne (2)

On June 23, ATO Records will release a 3CD set featuring the music from the October 28 show, First Act. The album is officially titled On Broadway: Act One – October 28th, 1987 [Live at Lunt-Fontanne Theater, New York, NY/1987]. In each show, Garcia would play two sets. The first would be an acoustic show. The second would be an electric Jerry Garcia Band set.

At this time, there is no track-list available that I can provide for you, nor any official cover artwork. But as it becomes available, I will update this post with the new stuff.
