Dead Show/podcast for 6/25/10

Every so often I get the craving for some 'pure' Jerry - and this is one of those weeks - this week I'm bringing you one of the lesser known of the bands Jerry played with - Reconstruction. 

Here's the lineup for this show:

Jerry Garcia guitar, vocals
John Kahn bass
Merl Saunders keyboards
Ed Neumeister trombone
Ron Stallings saxophone, vocals
Gaylord Birch drums

It's possible that this isn't everyone's cup of tea - but while its not the most well-known Garcia, I think you'll enjoy it... 

Reconstruction - July 7, 1979
Keystone - Palo Alto, CA

- Set 1 -
Tellin' My Friends
That's What Love Will Make You Do
Do I Move You
Another Star
Struggling Man
Make It Better

You can listen to this week's Deadpod here:

Thanks for listening and for all your support!!!

This is my cup of tea! What a gem! Great to hear those jazz influences that percolate through the Dead in full array here with Jerry's ensemble.

I love this. I have a few recordings of Reconstruction, the one thing I notice about these recordings is that the sound quality is AMAZING. However I do not have any full Reconstruction shows on tape. It would be GREAT to have one of these shows released "officially" in the Pure Jerry series. What a gem. THANK YOU for the upload. This is definitely i-pod worthy.

More tea, please! Man cannot live by coffee alone. Any fan of good music in general should appreciate this. Thanks for this gem, Professor!
