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.

Garcia & Saunders, two shows from the Keystone in 1974 (SBD)

Here are two more Jerry Garcia and Merl Saunders shows. These are both from the Keystone in Berkeley CA, early in 1974. Some of the songs I first saw circulated as a bootleg called Dicks Gifts and are smoking hot.

Keystone; Berkeley, CA
Soundboard and some matrix.
This comes from several sources to make the complete show.

Disc One 71:08
Set I
Someday Baby [16:24]
La-La [14:04]
Second That Emotion [15:55]
My Funny Valentine [24:41]

Disc Two 74:41
Set I (con't)
Who's Lovin' You Tonight? [16:40]
Set II
Finders Keepers [11:29]
Think [11:04]
Are You Lonely For Me Baby? [22:34]
Harder They Come [12:49]

Parts of this were found on a CD that circulated called Dicks Gifts, also known as "Legion Of Mary Mystery tape". Supposedly found by Dick Latvala in the vault unlabeled.  You can see that the dead air was cut off some of the songs on the Dicks Gift versions. But this is the complete show. The Dicks Gifts came in this order. The ones that are from this are great soundboard recordings. Finders Keepers is one of my favorites on this.

1. Finders Keepers 10:12
2. Think 9:12
3. Lala 11:34
4. I Second That Emotion 14:31
5. My Funny Valentine 23:59

  1. Thanx for these...! One prob: The "January 17, 1974.part1" segment won't finish downloading, because it's too large. The other 3 part of 1/17/74 come through OK. Can you divide PART 1 into 2 pieces??? Thanx............

  2. Timmy, the file for part one is only 95 MB, the same size as part two and three. If anything it is small for music download standards. There must be something wrong at your end. No one else appears to be having a problem.

  3. You're right... It worked the second time around. Sorry.... THANX A LOT 4 ALL THESE!!!

  4. Wow This Jerry and Merl show sounds amazing! Great sound quality and the second set just rips. Thanks so much AJ!
