Fall in all Deadheads & especially you Jerryphiles out there! Here
it is, your chance to pick up the COMPLETE "After Midnight" Long Out
of Print release (from 2004!), with the Ultra Rare "After Midnight"
Bonus Disc included! Brand New!!! Thus, making this the 'Complete'
release & the serious Collector's 4-CD version!! When I first found
out about this release nearly 10 years ago, I simply could not wait for it to
arrive -- and then felt like I was in Deadhead-Heaven (kinda like being at the
Warfield, I suppose...) when it finally did! I mean this Spring '80 Tour
was Garcia Band at one of its 1st "Greats", and truly vital forms!
The J.G.B. unit here is stripped down to a bare-boned Quartet &
really ready to Rock! Only Jerry & John along with Ozzie Ahlers on
keys & Johnny De Foncesca on the drum kit. This unit not only
mastered the essence of the Early-1980's Rock-sound, but they could really
'read' each others moves, moods & timing-signature - just like a
book! Completely ultra-tight musicianship. And all along, this
strength-in-(low)-numbers formula gave Garcia all the open room & musical
space he needed to get the most exquisite tones, ampage volumes &
rig-effects to match each unique song structure & solo-jamming pockets for
the build-up of what became a fantastic & amazing J.G.B. song repertoire.
When I was a kid, there was a time when I would not consider going on
journeys to shows, tours, or even on short road trips without the cassette tape
from this fabulous show. I thought the After Midnight > Eleanor Rigby >
After Midnight was one of the most brilliant, thoughtful & basically genius
song segue transitions I had ever heard in my life. Mixing J.J. Cale
& The Beatles in such an incredibly stylish musical fashion!?! I
mean come on, this material is some of the best!! In fact, when I was
fortunate enough to do the very intimate & extremely-special West Coast
J.J. Cale Tour back in Spring 2009 - I brought this one along, just for
old-time's sake. But really, it had never left anyways. So here it
is in digitally remastered fashion in all of its glory - as if you could even
think of making this fine performance even more perfect than it already
was. Well, indeed that is just what happened. Just an incredibly awesome
release. This is without question, one of the most smoldering-hot J.G.B.
releases we have ever seen to date from that so very-very precious Jerry Garcia
