Perhaps it seems that I've played more than my usual share of Garcia recently - but this newly released gem demands to be heard.. This is (probably) a multi-track recording with the legendary Merle Saunders at the Keystone in Berkeley CA, July 10, 1973.
This is a truly wonderful recording, and if you're a fan of Jerry/Merle then you'll really enjoy this week's and next week's show (when I play the rest of this show)...
Not only does this week's set feature the very first 'The Harder They Come' performance, every song is really a treat, in my opinion....
Jerry Garcia and Merl Saunders
July 10 1973
The Harder They Come **first version by Garcia
It Takes a Lot to Laugh, It Takes a Train to Cry
It's Too Late
My Funny Valentine
You can listen to this week's Deadpod here:
Enjoy the show, and thanks as always for your support..............
