Fall 1989: The Long Island Sound - a box set from the Jerry Garcia Band and Bob Weir & Rob Wasserman released on Round Records. This archival release features two complete performances with over 5 1/2 hours of previously unreleased music from September 5th, 1989 at the Hartford Civic Center in Hartford, CT and September 6th, 1989 at Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, NY. Fall 1989: The Long Island Sound celebrates the storied East Coast 1989 run which featured acoustic duo Bob Weir and Rob Wasserman setting the stage for two nightly sets from the Jerry Garcia Band.
Fall 1989: The Long Island Sound was recorded by John Cutler to 2-track DAT and mastered by Joe Gastwirt. It's important to note this collection contains audio with apparent, irremediable sonic imperfections (most notably the distortion on Jerry's vocal during "Cats Under The Stars") heard by all who experienced these performances in person or on tape. Despite the limitations in fidelity, the performances presented showcase timeless, transcendent and often blistering moments of pure magic. Listen comfortably with our promise that every effort was made to produce these performances for release in a manner which honors the spirit of its creation.
