Review by Tim Sindelar
Jerry Garcia, San Francisco's grand old
man of music, decided that he would try and
record some tunes by himslef"just fooling
around" in the studio. What he has
produced, Garcia, assisted only by Billy
Kreutzman on drums, is a fine piece of work
that stands out even further against the
current crop of mediocre solo albums (Stills,
McCartney, ad nauseum).
Undoubtedly, when you listen to Side
One, you'll think that you're listening to the
Grateful Dead. The same richness, the
golden perfection, and the amazing
listenability are all there. What is remarkable
is that Garcia is doing all the work himself.
"Deal" has the driving, moving sound
that sets up the beginning of the album-and
the Robert Hunter lyrics develope a
philosophy worth listening to. "Bird Song"
is a -nice ballad-type song and "Loser" is a
"Sugaree" is the high-point of this album.
Garcia's "electric" voice, coupled with his
unique rhythm and blues guitar licks
produce that toe-tapping music that is such a
joy to hear.
Side Two presents a somewhat different
effect. It opens up with a phantasmagoric
that once again, has a sense of perfection to
it. It took me awhile to fully appreciate this
mix, and it's quite possible that it will grow
old-but at the present, it astounds me.
"To Lay Me Down" is another lament,
but this one grows a bit repetitious. "An Old
Little Place" is an odd little bit of drumming
that leads into "The Wheel," a beautifully
mellow piece that takes up where "Deal"
All in all, there is a little bit for everyone,
and quite a bit for those who love the Dead.
It's true that the album may not be overly
exciting, but it evokes a good feeling that
this up-tight town could use more of.
