The Return of the Jerry Covers Project | Part 4 of 6+ | Funk show #2
Jerry Garcia performed in well over 4000 live concerts during his decades as a musician, about half of the shows in The Grateful Dead, the rest in other projects. Jerry's solo career (view by year) spanned almost the entire existence of The Grateful Dead and his repetoire was truly massive.
Starting last year and running irregularly, in this special, I feature Jerry's solo cover material (but not all of it), in a similar fashion to a GD special I produced last year (parts 1, 2, 3). This means that you'll hear the originally recorded version of the song and then Jerry performing it with one of his side groups. I will emphasize the early and middle 1970s era, but won't stay there.
Many of the shows in this series are themed and today is the second of two shows dedicated to funk and soul tunes.
Check out the other Jerry covers project shows here (Jazz #1), here (Funk #1) and here (Jazz #2).
