Last Time in Irvine: JGB at Irvine Meadows, May 15, 1994

I forewarned a few posts back that I had some backlogged listening notes, and have been posting them this weekend. They were backlogged, in many cases, because I just didn't have that much to say. I often check the date index for the blog in picking something to listen to, looking for gaps or inflection points that I might not have covered. I won't be able to cover it all, ever, but I want to get a nice sampling.

So, here we are in May of 1994. Garcia had been doing brief SoCal jaunts for many years, and especially from the early 80s on these were Bill Graham joints. From the early 80s these were generally small club and theater gigs, but by 1994 our hero was in big spaces that the Dead had pioneered, such as Irvine Meadows, behind the Orange Curtain. The venue, had the honor of hosting Jerry on his 50th birthday, years after the Grateful Dead had been banned by the city because of unruly fan hairdos behavior. The May 15, 1994 gig came just three days after Jerry had signed the last, eventually highly-contested version of his will, and was the third of six shows in seven nights. This little southwest mini-tour, his last, ended with a thud when our hero, for the only time in his career that I can think of, started a show but couldn't finish it, a flu in Phoenix ending the May 19th show after a single set.

If Robbi Cohn's photos from Irvine are any indication, Jerry may well have caught the flu from John, who looks decidedly green.

Anyway, the show has a few good moments, as in "Let It Rock", on its penultimate appearance (3/4/95). Other tunes mix some good guitar work with lots of forgotten vocals (though he never entirely falls and can't get up, nor leads me to exclaim "confused, trainwreck, yeesh, yikes", as would happen with other shows plus or minus a few months). Only "Midnight Moonlight" is worryingly bad, with Jerry changing key a few times and the whole thing not coming apart at the seams only because it was never together in the first place.

This is a great tape, as so many of these 90s DAT masters are, and generally this landed about where I expected it to, our protagonist declining but still smiling enough for Robbi to capture.

! R: Really nice tape. The guitar tuning after HSII, e.g. at 6:29, sounds right in your face.

! P: s1t01 HSII his voice sounds wheezy, but he brings some energy.

! song: "Let It Rock" (s1t02): this is the penultimate version of the Chuck Berry rocker, last one coming 3/4/95.

! P: s1t02 LIR his guitar tone is awesome. He blows the second verse. But, again the guitar work is pretty killer, great buzzsaw tone, chopping rhythms.

! P: s1t07 Deal late 2 Jerry forgets his place and reprises the "since it costs a lot to win" thing for the third time. Ladies are doing their backing thing for awhile, and finally at 3:40, JG figures out how to fling into his big guitar. Pretty big fanning 5:21, but this hasn't burned me up yet. Some good technique, but not quite the power I need. Maybe it's the recording, which has the guitar back, but it's not melting my face. Relatively short version.

! s1t07 (1) JG: "Thanks a lot. We'll be back in a few minutes."

! P: s2t14 Mid Moon oh no - Garcia is totally off-key in the first verse, doesn't remember how to sing this. The tempo isn't settled across members of the band. I can't hear John at all.

Last Freddie-ish Gig on Tape: JGB at the Stone, May 28, 1987

update: I can't believe I didn't know that Freddie didn't actually run the Stone and KPA. I knew the Coronas were involved, but Corry informs me in comments that they actually ran the KPA and the Stone, and Freddie really only had the Berkeley club. Learn something new everyday. I will still refer to this as Freddie-affiliated, since the "Keystone Family" as a real concept, whatever its substance. /update

As I just noted, the last Freddie  Herrera-affiliated room, The Stone on Broadway, couldn't hold the post-Touch of Grey Garcia Band. Two and a half weeks after filming the TOG video at Laguna Seca in Monterey, Jerry put a bow on his professional relationship with Freddie -- their friendship continued unaffected, as far as I know -- with four gigs in five nights starting May 27, 1987 and ending on May 31. No tapes circulate for the last two nights, though one imagines they might have been recorded. Consider this a "bleg" for those tapes, because I dream that there was some special energy as the intimate, decade and a half relationship comes to a close.

No special energy is apparent in this May 28th gig. There are some good moments, and it's fine, but there's not much that especially lights me up. I enjoyed the relative rarity "Crazy Love", another Moondance track Jerry added to his post-coma repertoire (along with the much longer-lived "And It Stoned Me"). For my taste, 1987 Jerry Band falls at least a notch below the 1988 and 1989 versions, which I am having a hard time ranking. I need to think more about the decade as a whole, but I guess I do think that the post-coma shows ending 1986 and well into 1987 still find our boy re-establishing his footing.

Listening notes below. John Corley was an amazing taper. If you know how to reach him, please put him in touch with me!

! historical: After 16 years of collaboration, from a New Riders gig the night before Thanksgiving 1970 to this four show JGB run May 27-28 and 30-31, 1987, Jerry had to walk away from Freddie Herrera as host of his local side gigs in favor of Bill Graham, who could offer rooms, and especially, eventually, the 3,000 seat Warfield, more commensurate with Garcia's post-In The Dark needs.

! song: "Crazy Love" (s2t05): Post-coma, Jerry picked up two tunes from Van Morrison's 1970 classic Moondance. "And It Stoned Me" me stuck around until the end, but "Crazy Love" only lasted a year, making 15 appearances between 10/19/86 and 10/31/87. It strained his vocals a little bit, which might have contributed to its demise. It's a nice tune.

At Wolfgang's Orpheum: JGB with Clarence Clemons, March 3, 1989

The success of the Dead's Touch of Grey didn't only limit that band's venue (and even city) options. It also impacted ol' Midas's bar band. Freddie Herrera's last remaining club, the 700-seat Stone on Broadway, didn't stand a chance, and a four-night Garcia Band run on May 27-28 and 30-31, 1987 brought the curtain down on Jerry and Freddie's professional relationship. It's hard to know how Jerry felt about moving up in the world and bringing his solo band's gigs into Bill Graham's orbit - maybe it was a mixture of pride at his success and chagrin at having to cut Freddie loose, or maybe it was one, the other, or neither.

Regardless, from 1987 to the end, Bill was Jerry's local promoter, starting with the direct-from-Broadway acoustic-electric shows at the Warfield just after Thanksgiving of that year. And, again, from 1990 to the end Garcia Band services were held there, at 982 Market, 3,000 congregants at a time getting some rel'g'n in between Dead shows at the Coliseum and Shoreline. In between times, though, Bill undertook major renovations at homefield, and Jerry's relatively infrequent local gigs in 1988 and 1989 happened in other spaces, most commonly the Orpheum Theatre a little ways down the street at 1192 Market. It was a great room, and the Orpheum gigs all have that nice, clean feel present throughout the period, with a healthy, happy Jerry doing his low-key R&B, Beatles, Dylan, and Garcia-Hunter material in tasty spaces with the super-consonant supporting cast of JGB #21b - THE Jerry Garcia Band. With all involved at least "tryin' to have a reasonably good time", as ol' Jer put it, and mostly succeeding, it's never a bad instinct to call up one of these Orpheum gigs and hit play.

The Friday, March 3, 1989 Garcia Band gig fits the bill just fine. There's nothing bad here, and there's plenty of good stuff, for me especially in Deal and Harder They Come. Clarence Clemons mostly bores me (when not annoying), and for the life of me I can't figure out why Jerry liked having him along for most of the year. I just don't love the Illinois Jacquet-established R&B sax style, I guess (blasphemy alert). Blair wrote up a short review in the Golden Road that raved, and you should certainly trust his judgment over mine, but on this listen (following partial listens at least in 2011 and 2014, according to my notes), the show didn't absolutely slay me. It was good and solid and fun, and Taz Yamaguchi (like Bill Reutelhuber) pulled a great tape, but the show never achieved escape velocity, for me. YMMV.

The Shortest Two-Set Electric Show? JGB at the Stone, Sunday, September 16, 1984

LN jg1984-09-16.jgb.all.aud-jjoops.97573.flac1644

A little dive into the Rock Bottom period yields this pearl of an electric JGB show - two four-tune sets clocking in around a half-hour of music each. I don't really note anything much about the performance, other than its brevity and Garcia's unsurprising vocal limitations. I don't want to be mean. I am just calling 'em as I see 'em.

I have been doing some listening, but not making much in the way of notes. I guess "not much to say" is a datum, too, so I may post a bunch of stuff this weekend. Or not.

The Examiner has revealed that there was an opening act this night (Ron Price), and for more local early 80s gigs than has generally been appreciated. I suspect Jerry didn't come on until quite late, but I don't know that for sure. An opening act would have been useful to keep the beer-buying crowd buying beer while awaiting the big fella.

RIP, Freddie

Just back onto the grid and I see that Freddie Herrera has passed on.

Rest in peace, Freddie. I am sure he and Sandi are thrilled to be back together again.

Has anyone seen an obituary?

Here is link to my Freddie Herrera tag: http://jgmf.blogspot.com/search/label/Freddie%20Herrera

I had the chance to sit with Sandi and Freddie some years back. I don't think I have listened to the recording of our chat, but need to (and annotate it). They were totally delightful.

Jerry Garcia playing bass behind Lightnin' Hopkins: Fillmore Aud, 10/23/66

In the Fillmore Poster Appreciation Society group page on Facebook, eyewitness comments under the poster for the Bill Graham shows on the weekend of 10/21-23-/66 indicate that Jerry Garcia played bass behind Lightnin' Hopkins. I don't think I knew that. Did you?

This would be Jerry's third non-GD performance within a week:
10/16/66 sit-in with Big Brother
10/16/66 New Peanut Butter Sandwich
10/23/66 backing Lightnin' Hopkins (on bass)

Strange things happening the month LSD became illegal in California.
