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 Acoustic Band, 10-28-1987

This is another recording of the Jerry Garcia Acoustic Band. This acoustic band played from shows from August to December of 1987. Usually as a first set acoustic and then a second set was played by the regular Jerry Garcia (electric) Band. There were not very many of these shows and you were lucky to get to see this if you did. There were long runs of shows in New York and Los Angeles and then a few a few bay area shows. I was lucky to see a few of the Los Angeles ones and came away very happy.

  1. Great post!! Great line-up too. Thanks a lot for putting up and sharing such great music.

  2. Good stuff. I think recently two albums are released compiling materials from these jam sessions - 'Almost Acoustic' & 'Ragged But Right'. Hope I am not mistaken.

  3. Thanks for the recent Garcia Saunders boards. Is there any chance you could bring the 10.28.1987 Lunt-Fontanne show back to life?

  4. Problem is some of this is now official released material.
