All of the music recordings on this site are recordings of independent origin (ROIOs) Music that has not been officially released. If you are an artist or a legal representative of an artist and you do not want your ROIO shared on my site for free among your fans (and creating new fans), just tell me in the comment area and I will remove them. By the way these recordings exist. They won't go away. All of them can be found at various places on line. Sharing just keeps the fans that support the artists from having to get ripped off by purchasing them on auction sites, and it also introduces music to people who would never have known the artist, creating a stronger fan base.

Jerry Garcia & Merl Saunders, 7-03-1973

Here is another of the Jerry Garcia side projects. This one is under the name of Jerry Garcia and Merl Saunders. This is a long one with close to three hours of music. The second set on this one gets way out there with a 20 minute My Funny Valentine followed by a 10 minute Finders Keepers (my favorite), with an unknown trumpet player adding to the fun. When you look at what Garcia was doing with the Grateful Dead at this time and add this to it, you just have to wonder how it was possible that anyone could produce this much. Again it is a real fine soundboard recording.
