As much as I love the Grateful Dead, Jerry Garcia Band, etc, I rarely run to them. I just find it's easier for me to run to random studio albums from whoever. But today I ran to some Jerry...

Dear Prudence, Gomorrah-> Midnight Moonlight
Within minutes it's evident Jerry's got magic this show... or at least this set. He and John Kahn had recently wrapped up a 9-night swing through the Northeast and it feels like he's happy to be back to the electricity of the Jerry Garcia Band. This show is the third night on a 7-night Bay Area-Northwest swing and there's definitely some good energy and emotion here. Dear Prudence is just as beautiful as ever. Jerry gets in such a zone. That acoustic stuff from the month before is nice but... man, this is nice! Oh, and screw The Beatles' version. I'm sorry but any song of theirs by Jerry just kicks John, Paul, George & Ringo's collective butts. And more butt-kicking comes in the form of Midnight Moonlight. Mmm!
This might only be about 46 minutes long but it's a great listen. Audio Quality could even be considered around 4½ stars, especially when graded solely against other Auds.
