(5 out of 5 stars)

"This Cd has tremendous power and energy. You hear Jerry pouring his heart out. The vocals are rough The guitar playing is out of this world. John Kahn is also the most unheard of bass player ever. His playing along side Jerry is fantastic. Check out Jerry's solos on Think and Tore up Over You. You will be shaking you head in disbelief. This is a treasure and a gift no doubt about it."

"Along with it's Companion CD Set: "Jerry Garcia Band" this CD is the Best Example of 90's era Live Jerry. This is Jerry, Healthy, Happy and leading a Fine Band at the Warfield Theater, San Francisco in 1990. A live: "Cats Under the Stars" would have been worth the Cover Charge, but adding: "Like a Road","Gomorrah","Tears of Rage" and "Think" really makes this Release something special!

Jerry, is joined by John Kahn on Bass Guitar (Thanks for bringing him up in this Mix) David Kemper on drums (Both David & John played with The Acoustic Garcia Band as well) Jackie LaBranch & Gloria Jones: Vocals and Melvin Seals on Keyboards. This Band is Soulful on the Ballads, and Rocks like a Beast on the Upbeat Tunes.

There are Comments regarding the Sound Quality. As an 80's Tape-Trader that has heard his share of Audience Cassettes, this CD sounds really warm, and that isn't easy to achieve in this Digital Age. With Ten Songs and 77 Minutes of this Great Music, this is Essential Jerrymusic. Get this one whilst it's Still Available."
5 stars aren't really enough.

"Jerry in the Warfield Theater, that just about says it all. In a lot of ways it was a 2nd home to Jerry and it is there, arguably, that he was most comfortable and focused, at least in a concert setting. This CD is incredible. It has the best of Jerry's emotional depth but lacks the psychedelic arrangements that lose so many non-deadheads.There's some complicated leads, some amazingly quick picking, Jerry's innately soulful singing and the incredibly rich throaty soulful sound of Seals' Hammond Organ.A lot of music get 5 ratings out of kindness, this one really is a true 5 out of 5."
