GarciaLive Volume Four: March 22nd, 1978 Veteran's Hall

Editor's comment

I'm running behind in reviews, but will say that the Jerry Garcia Band with Keith Godchaux on hand is my favorite period of Garcia solo material. This is the third release from this tour, and I would enjoy more to follow, hopefully with a monster version of "Russian Lullaby". Personally, I really enjoy the Cat's Down Under the Stars material played on this tour; beside the title track, the biblical inspired tracks, "Gomorrah" and "I'll Be With Thee" are some of the best vocal highlights, both Garia on lead, Donna on lead, the harmonizing, Maria Malduar's contributions. "Love in the Afternoon" with a dose of a Reggae beat, gets a nice workout. 

Disc one offers a version of The Band's, "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down." I love the melody, but they play it a bit too slow. It doesn't compare the the way The Band played it. If I could plug The Allman Brothers renditions, Gregg Allman really sings this nicely, and the tasteful guitar, plus when the Juke Horns sit in and they use horns! Regarding the lyrics, Jerry sings one verse as I swear by the blood on my feet, but the lyrics are I swear by the mud below my feet. 

I've been listening to all of the Garcia 1978 releases of late. They are all great. Keith really seems to shine on this release. 

According to my Deadbase, this is the last show to feature Maria Maldaur.

Product Description

2 CD Set featuring over 2 hours of previously unreleased music mastered from original soundboard recordings. The fourth installment of the recently launched archival series presents the Jerry Garcia Band's performance from March 22nd, 1978 at Veteran's Hall in Sebastopol, California. This incarnation of the Jerry Garcia Band features Garcia and longtime collaborator John Kahn plus drummer Buzz Buchanan and Grateful Dead bandmates Keith and Donna Jean Godchaux. Grammy award winning vocalist Maria Muldaur ('Midnight at the Oasis') rounds out the line-up. 

Caveat: GarciaLive Volume Four celebrates an era of the Jerry Garcia Band known for its sweet, soulful and expansive performances. This exemplary performance, as was common for the time, extended beyond the bounds of the original ¼” analog reels missing the final few measures of “Midnight Moonlight,” but is otherwise complete. Listen comfortably with our promise that every effort was made to produce this performance for release in a manner which honors the spirit of its creation.
