This is a 1971 Original Douglas Records pressing with excellent sound. I don't see this out in the wild often so after taking a long time to build up my reserves, I finally cleaned them all up and had a shootout this week. (I also played the digitally remastered clear vinyl pressing on Rykodisc which I thought was a clear - no pun intended - step down from the originals.)
This was one of the better sounding copies, with the kind of immediacy and energy that really brought the music to life. The music is organ-driven with jazzy and funky touches, the lineup includes John Kahn, Ron Tutt, and Martin Fierro who would all go on to play in other Jerry Garcia projects.
4 stars Allmusic: "Garcia brings a quality and pure tonality that he would rarely revisit, either on his own or in the context of the Grateful Dead"
Vinyl: VG+ (faint hairlines under hard light but plays well)
Cover: VG (ringwear, some discoloration, tiny hole upper right)
Play notes: Great sound, light surface noise behind quietest parts
We prefer to overdeliver and therefore grade conservatively. Our scale runs Near Mint (NM), Excellent (EX), Very Good Plus (VG+), Very Good (VG), Good Plus (G+), Good (G).
