Jerry Garcia Band: Electric On The Eel

Electric on the Eel celebrates the Jerry Garcia Band’s 3 beloved, biannual performances at French’s Camp on the Eel River in Piercy, CA: August 29, 1987; June 10, 1989; and August 10, 1991. The events were co-presented by Bill Graham Productions and the Hog Farm which, as producer & Hog Farmer Bob Barsotti describes "lent them an air of familiarity not always present in the urban settings in which Jerry usually played.”

The audience and band both delighted in the free spirited and fun-filled atmosphere, setting the stage for 6 magical sets of music featuring the quintessential JGB line-up: Garcia, John Kahn (bass), Melvin Seals (organ), David Kemper (drums), Gloria Jones (vocals) and Jacklyn LaBranch (vocals). The collection features several unreleased rarities including the seldom performed “See What Love Can Do”, “Twilight”, “Lazy Bones”, and “I Hope It Won’t Be This Way Always.” Other rarities from the release include “Everybody Needs Somebody to Love”, “Struggling Man”, “Lay Down Sally” and “You Never Can Tell [C’est La Vie]”.

While supplies last, every order will receive the Acoustic on the Eel bonus CD feat. the Jerry Garcia Acoustic Band’s complete Aug. 29th, 1987 set from French’s Camp.
