    Just listened to this set from start to finish,and even though I already had some of this on tapes,it sounds so much better cleaned up,and digital. Quite the history of early Jerry music,I’m glad I finally added this to my collection!

    This set of CDs is rapidly becoming one of my favorites. Disk 2 is as strong of a bluegrass collection as any of the rest of my favorite disks. Even without the Dead, Jerry would have been a beloved and highly regarded acoustic Americana curator just on the strengths of what he had demonstrated in 1961-1962. I LOVE this collection! And I completely agree with the other comments here... Jerry did become a "mind-blowing banjo virtuoso" through the course of these recordings. Getting to listen to such an extensive documentation of this man's journey through American music to the point where he began writing a new Legacy himself is both a treat and a privilege.

    This set of discs is fascinating from a sociological point of view as well as from the point of view of a major Jerry fan. You hear voices and sounds from ordinary, everyday events like a birthday party or a coffeehouse from the early 1960s, before so much of what people think of as the 1960s had happened. You hear Jerry go from being decent beginning picker in 1961 to being a mind-blowing banjo virtuoso by 1964. He is playing with other great musicians, too, some of whom you will recognize like David Nelson and Robert Hunter. You may also know Sandy Rothman from the late 1980s "Almost Acoustic" album and tour. Lots of American musical history and heritage. When I heard Jerry's skill as a bluegrass musician by 1964, it occurred to me that one probable reason for his improvisational playing style was to keep the much simpler rock 'n roll interesting for him after picking so much fast and complex melodies on the banjo. Not something that I listen to every day, but it's an interesting look at "old-timey" music as Jerry and his compatriots called it in several recordings as well as how an artist that we all know and love developed into one of the greatest musicians of the late 20th century.

    Excellent! Already had most of these shows but I'll take high quality sound that this release provides any day of the week!

    I purchased the CD for my husband as he has been a die-hard fan since youth. He said it was fascinating, but would rather stick to his beloved Greatful Dead tunes. I must add that hearing Garcia jam that banjo was truly impressive. The sound quality is excellent and makes nice cruising music. I would listen to it again, but only once in awhile when I need that special dose of "brilliant!"

    A must for anyone who collects the music of Jerry Garcia and the Grateful Dead. It is definitely the beginning of Jerry's music that will continue to evolve to the music of the Dead. I totally enjoyed it.

    Simply remarkable what the producers and engineers were able to do with a bunch of ancient homemade tapes. Very Impressed! As for the music, it is very listenable and I've quite it enjoyed their "bittersweet innocence". The rapid growth of the musical chops of these guys in a relatively short span of years is very apparent. What will the closest and attics of aging hippies and folkies reveal next?
