‘GarciaLive Volume 12’ Features Jerry Garcia & Merl Saunders 1973 Show


Jerry Garcia and Merl Saunders‘ performance from January 23, 1973 at the Boarding House in San Francisco will be featured on GarciaLive Volume 12. The upcoming installment of the GarciaLive archival series is due on December 20 from Round Records and the Jerry Garcia Family.

Garcia and Saunders’ complete and previously uncirculated performance was recorded by Betty Cantor and Rex Jackson and mixed by Jonathan Wilson and Dave Cerminara. Jerry and Merl were joined at the show featured on GarciaLive Volume 12 by bassist John Kahn, drummer Bill Vitt and vocalist Sarah Fulcher. While Vitt and Kahn had long tenures with the group, Fulcher had a short but impactful run with Garcia and Saunders.

An announcement of GarciaLive Volume 12, which will be released as a 3-CD set, digital download and via streaming services, notes highlights as takes on Martha & The Vandellas’ “Honey Chile” and Ray Charles favorites “Lonely Avenue” and “Georgia On My Mind.” The set also includes a number of Garcia/Saunders staples including “Expressway (To Your Heart),” “It Takes A Lot To Laugh, It Takes A Train To Cry” and “I Second That Emotion.” Previews of the set will be issued soon.
