Next week, Round Records and ATO Records will issue Garcialive Volume 6: July 5, 1973 Lion’s Share featuring Grateful Dead guitarist Jerry Garcia and his longtime collaborator, keyboardist Merl Saunders. In advance of its June 24 official release, JamBase is pleased to premiere the live recording of “That’s Alright, Mama” which was played that night.
Joining Garcia and Saunders that night at the intimate 200-person venue about 20 miles north of San Francisco in San Anselmo were drummer Bill Vitt and frequent Garcia collaborator, bassist John Kahn. The two set performance came just five days before the quartet came together at the Keystone in Berkeley for the famed run that became the Garcia/Saunders live albums Live At Keystone The Vol. 1 and Live At The Keystone Vol. 2. The three-CD Garcialive Volume 6: July 5, 1973 Lion’s Share release was culled from master tapes recorded by acclaimed Dead engineer Betty Cantor-Jackson.
The show at the Lion’s Share included a take on Arthur Crudup’s later hit for Elvis Presley “That’s Alright, Mama.” Head here to pre-order Garcialive Volume 6 and stream the premiere of the preview of the archival recording below:
