Electric On The Eel: August 10th, 1991 To Be pressed On Vinyl for Record Store Day 2019!
Stop the presses! Well not literally… We’ve heard your requests for live Jerry Garcia Band vinyl and are thrilled to announce Electric on the Eel: August 10th, 1991 will be released as a 4-LP 180gram set in celebration of Record Store Day on April 13th. The complete two-set performance from French’s Camp on the Eel River in Piercy, CA is presented on five sides, with side H featuring an etching sourced from Thos Chapman’s original show poster. The set, which holds the distinction as the first-ever live Jerry Garcia Band vinyl release, will be produced in a limited edition of 2,000 by Furnace Record Pressing in Virginia.
The August 10th, 1991 performance at Eel River stands out as one of the latter-era Jerry Garcia Band’s finest. The setlist is as unique as the venue — and uncharacteristically dotted with rarities including The Band’s “Twilight”, Johnny Mercer & Hoagy Carmichael’s “Lazy Bones”, and Eric Clapton’s soul-stirring “See What Love Can Do.” Buoyant versions of “Lay Down Sally”, and an epic, set-closing “Everybody Needs Somebody To Love” close the band’s run at Eel River on an especially high note.
Electric on the Eel: August 10th, 1991 will be available exclusively at local independent record stores who participate in Record Store Day. To find a list of participating stores and additional information about Record Store Day, visit RecordStoreDay.com
