Two Jerry Garcia Acoustic Band releases

Jerry's daughters and brother-the Jerry Garica Family LLC-proudly reissue Almost Acoustic, JGAB's critically acclaimed 14-track set of gems from 1987's storied Wiltern and Warfield shows. Originally compiled by Jerry and Sandy Rothman, Almost Acoustic offers an exceptional mixture of tunes popularized by the likes of Jimmie Rodgers, the Stanley Brothers, Tex Logan, the Blue Sky Boys, Mississippi John Hurt and more. Remastered of course brilliant HDCD audio.

Twenty years in the making, Ragged But Right, Sandy Rothman's (and Jerry's) follow up to Almost Acoustic completes the mission of presenting JGAB's entire repertoire. Fourteen nuggets plucked primarily from 1987's Lunt-Fontanne "13 Magical Nights" on Broadway and additional material from the subsequent Wiltern and Warfield gigs. This tremendous follow up album was lovingly transferred from the original DAT soundboard cassettes and mastered in crystal clear HDCD audio.

The Dead deliver up their very own psychedelic soundtrack from Hollywood, Florida's Big Rock Pow Wow Festival in May of 1969. Yet another sonic gem from Bear's reel to reel master tapes, Road Trips Vol. 4 No. 1 offers up two fiery complete sets (over 3 discs) that show the group at their exploratory best. As always, it's been mastered to HDCD specs by Jeffrey Norman for maximum fidelity and punch. There's some pretty amusing stage patter you won't want to miss, too. We think it's one of our best releases yet, but judge for yourself.

Join the party! Enjoy free streams of "Oh, The Wind And Rain" from Almost Acoustic and "Turtle Dove" from Ragged But Right.  Click here to listen!

Formerly the Warlocks...always The Dead

If you weren't in the know in Southern Virginia in early October of 1989, then you probably missed an epic pair of "stealth" shows the Dead played under the guise of their original name "The Warlocks." As The Warlocks, the boys found a way around their town ban and we've found a way to bring you those historic October 8 & 9, 1989 Hampton Coliseum shows as the latest in a distinguished line of complete-run boxes.

That's right, the Warlocks Box showcases every note of the band's two magical nights at Hampton Coliseum, spread over six CDs. From a "revival" of old favorites including the elusive "Dark Star," and the long-lost "Attics of My Life" (unplayed since 1972!) to crowd-pleasing nuggets like the spectacular "Morning Dew," the raucous "I Need a Miracle," and the incendiary Brent/Phil stomper "Gimme Some Lovin'," this collection offers up a veritable career retrospective. And quite a transcendent one at that!

Mixed from the original 24-track analog and mastered to HDCD specifications and packaged in a wooden cigar box filled with photos, essays, and cool memorabilia, this one's a potent blast of the late '80s Dead you won't want to miss.
