Jerry Garcia Sometime Before Christmas

Night Times, published out of Berkeley for about a year (as far as I know) in 1971-1972, is a treasure. I found a review of Chez Panisse just shortly after it opened, but it's loaded with great music, art, etc. content.

Anyway, I liked this one, from the December 23, 1971 - January 3, 1972 issue, for what it says about Jerry's life at this time. He is listed as appearing at Keystone Korner (still run by Freddie Herrera) "sometime before Christmas". I wonder if, toward the end of his life, he ever actively mourned such freedom? Or had it been dead and buried so long that it no longer crossed his mind?
