Earlier this year the first installment of the new GarciaLive live archival series came out (3/1/80) and sounded exceptional. On April Fool’s Day, the Garcia Estate unveiled GarciaLive 1.5 (6/26/81), which was available as a digital download that came with one of Jer’s trademark black t-shirts. While GarciaLive Volume 2 hasn’t been officially announced, thanks to a tip from HT reader Steve R. we can reveal that the next installment will feature JGB’s August 5th, 1990 performance from Berkeley’s Greek Theatre.

At the moment, GarciaLive Vol. 2 is set for a June 11th release via Round Records. The Jerry Garcia Band’s 8/5/90 show is notable for many reasons including a guest spot from Bela Fleck of opening act Bela Fleck and the Flecktones. Fleck adds banjo to covers of Midnight Moonlight (Peter Rowan) and The Harder They Come (Jimmy Cliff). Also of note, the JGB covers Tears of Rage by The Band towards the end of the first set.

We can’t wait to feast our ears on an official recording of this longtime fan-favorite JGB show. You can pre-order GarciaLive Vol. 2 via Amazon.com for $14.99.

Looks outstanding. Hopefully the sound quality and playing will be is as good as volume 1. I suspect this will have Melvin on the Hammond as well. Can't wait!

How odd. I just today picked up my beat-up old Deadbase VI ,opened it to this show and realized "hmm, I've never heard the next performance Jerry did after Brent died. I've got to get this show." Boom, a few hours later, I see this post about it being officially released.

Stop That Train is a Peter Tosh song.

And, if you want to be technical, "How Sweet It Is is Holland/Dozier/Holland tune...

looking forward to hearing this again in refined glory!

It's funny, I recently tracked down a copy of this show at the insistence of a friend. It's a pretty ripping show, but the version of "The Harder They Come" w/Bela is especially great (and IMO the show's highlight). Both Jerry and Bela tear it up. "Improvised reggae banjo? Yep, we can do that."

Looking forward to finally having a clean copy of this one. :smile:
