Announcing GarciaLive Volume Three: December 14-15, 1974 Northwest Tour

Announcing the next installment of the GarciaLive series: GarciaLive Volume Three: December 14-15, 1974 Northwest Tour celebrating one of Jerry’s most experimental, improvisational and revered projects: Legion of Mary. Scheduled for release on October 15, 2013, GarciaLive Volume Three presents highlights from two winter 1974 performances captured during what is thought to be Legion of Mary’s first tour featuring the core lineup of Garcia, Merl Saunders, John Kahn, Martin Fierro and Ron Tutt.

Garcia’s voice and playing sound inspired and youthful while Saunders drives the soul with the organ and his gruff, husky singing voice, effortlessly paired with Kahn’s and Tutt’s steady rhythm and Fierro’s perfectly textured brass playing. The music more than delivers with the musical baton being passed around effortlessly, with leads chasing leads and the musicians following one another gracefully as evidenced on tracks like the hard-driving “Mystery Train” where the musician’s solos dance and sway with each other.

Overview
The third installment from the newly minted archival series celebrating the music of Jerry Garcia. GarciaLive Volume Three features newly mastered original two-track recordings from one of Jerry's most experimental, improvisational and revered projects: Legion of Mary. Culled from two Pacific Northwest performances on what is thought to be the band's first tour, GarciaLive Volume Three presents over 2 1/2 hours of previously unreleased music accompanied by a liner note essay by Dead Notes author Darryl Norsen, and previously unpublished live photos.

Legion of Mary is: Jerry Garcia, Merl Saunders, John Kahn, Martin Fierro, and Ron Tutt
