“It is said that, if you lined up all those who have ever been to a Grateful Dead concert head-to-toe, the line would stretch around the moon, and about halfway back. And nobody would complain!”
WSLR is slowly coming back with a very sparse number of live studio programmers, albeit with very specific instructions as to how to protect both ourselves and our fellow WSLR volunteers.
Jerry Garcia BandIrvine Meadows Amphitheater, Irvine, CAJerry’s 50th birthday:
August 1, 1992Primary source: FOB(Nak700)>SonyD3>DAT>CDR>WAV>SHNv3.Cats Under the Stars and the beginning of Mission In The Rain (which are missing from the FOB source) arefrom a second source with at least one analog generation of spotty indeterminate lineage.Thanks to K.Benbenisty for the FOB source.Taper is unknown for both sources.
I know during last week’s show i said a couple of times I had a fine, early soundboard line up tor this Monday’sshow…staying in the habit of typically lining up shows based on a Monday’s date. And then I remembered,Saturday is Jerry’s birthday! So checked my list and found this superb audience recording, and it was Jerry’s50th birthday!
As said above, the first ten or so minutes are from the only other source, an inferior audience recording, albeitstill very listenable. However, with patience, you will slide into this fine, fine front-of-board recording:
Disc 1 – Set 1:
Disc 2 – Set 2:
Comments:“Jerry’s 50th birthday. Intermittent balloons popping and mic contact with concert participants. This is onetough venue in terms of crowd noise – check out all other recordings from this venue), but all in all a prettyinspired performance and sentimentally over-the-hill second set topped off with a lovey dovey wonderful world.With Jerry around, indeed it was a Wonderful World. Happy Birthday Jerry!!!”
