Scarlet Begonias Radio: Hofheinz ’77 & JGB 1980

by Dennis on November 4, 2010

First, we need to finish the excellent Charlie Miller remaster that we started last week from Houston, Texas in 1977, featuring the Brokedown Palace->Playing in The band encore. Then, a personal favorite of mine. Steve Rolfe’s  amazing audience recording of the Jerry Garcia Band at the Orpheum Theatre in Boston on February 15th, 1980. They played “early” and “late” shows most nights of this tour, but it was really just one long show that required two tickets. The After Midnight->Eleanor Rigby-> After Midnight  that closes the show is an all-time memory for me, and I wore out my third-gen cassette copy of this recording in a dorm room on Huntington avenue in the months that followed the show.
(listen close, I’m on there cheering…)
