* "Peter Kafer brought his master up on a trip for Pat to copy around that time
... chances are the master he copied was destroyed" According to Bill Gadsden,
Peter's reels were ruined in his parent's attic. Do we really need another
source? I believe there are 7 versions listed in the db plus the bonus disc
for GD Beyond Description 1973-89 box set which omits JBG. Moreover, when I
first read FMMR > R on this seed, I was skeptical that this should be
circulated especially b/c we have a source that claims to be a pre-fm version
and the key part of this classic was available if you preordered the box set
mentioned above. However, as soon as I heard this copy, I was left with the
feeling it was different enough from all other sources and should be shared
with a wider audience. Unlike the other versions, it feels more pronounced,
like you're right in front of the band, witnessing live music. Of course
while Matt and I have the same subjective or aesthetic reaction to this reel,
there's no guarantee you'll have the same reaction as well. Still, b/c it's
small and classic, I say it's worth the risk that you too might really dig it!
Compared with the non-official sources, it lacks a dat step, has transfer
lineage, and, clearly benefits from having a high quality stand alone A/D
converter involved in the transfer chain. While Jamie (**__**) hasn't heard
this reel yet, I like the way he explains this theoretical issue: "dynamic
range can be compared to a bedroom closet. One COULD in theory pack everything
into one place ... fill the closet wall to wall ...one would then be confident
everything is there in one place ... but nothing would have its Own spot..."
Or, as Matt Smith described it to me, it's like going from 4 lanes to 2 lanes,
and the signal or music is compromised by skipping the stand alone A/D
conversion step and forcing it into 2 lanes or straight to cd. Dats and
transferring straight to cd simply result in a less dynamic range of music
than a "properly" handled reel. It's b/c of this process and hg equipment
that fm mr > r sources can sound better than pre-fm > dat sources. Not only is
avoiding the dat step key but so is the transfer method and tools. While I was
skeptical at first, I didn't think a fm reel could sound better than a pre-fm
source, I felt like I was hearing things in this master piece I haven't heard
before! And even when compared with the release, the keys sound better in the
mix to me. For some reason, they're simply less buried and more present. It's
probably the way the release was equalized. The pre-fm, release, and this
version all sound sweet to me but each provides the listener with a different
experience of this set. The release sounds "cleaner" than this reel, however,
and I think the percussion sounds better or more distinct at times too. And
while all versions suffer from brief moments of monitor or equipment noise,
the release does the best job masking that flaw.
In general, while the other sources sound more compressed or bunched and even
distant by comparison, this reel recording seems to have better separation and
clarity, or a dynamic range of music. Even Jerry sounds better in this full
compliment of sound; he seems to have a richer tone. It feels more like you're
at a show instead of listening to something recorded in a studio.
I like the way Matt put it, "To me, this is a perfect companion to the
2-28-75/Blues for Allah rehearsals. Basically it's the album in very raw
form 'live' on stage and a live broadcast to boot! What balls these guys
had!! The interplay between all the musicians even at the early stages
(even after taking 4 months off!) of developing the album is so tight and
focused I find it utterly thrilling listening. One can hear every instrument
perfectly clear with this mix."

|The Jerry Garcia interview is one of the most interesting & insightful short interviews I've ever heard him do.
In fact Garcia is always a great interview. There are a few others from his entire career circulating about, and they surely will make great listening, even without any music.
