–With the season of Jerome (8/1 – 8/9) nearly upon us, I thought I might make a little mix and seed it. No biggie, these arent rare recordings or anything. I do prefer many of these versions, and think of them as being well played, and extremely energetic. Jerry at his finest!

–This is just a fun little mix….enjoy….Chris Davis (7/19/05)

*So far as I can tell, this is the first Its no Use. The Jerry Site seems to confirm this…

Without me intending it, this volume became a Garcia and Saunders compilation. Plenty more on the shelf, so many songs yet to cover, but I was just in a jazzy mood. The horns sound great! Look for more in a day or two. Enjoy! Chris Davis (7/21/05)

7. Russian Lullabye 1/24/80

*There is some slight crackling at various points during Limbo. It is not terribly noticeable, but the headphones do make it more obvious. I added this anyway, because Nicky Hopkins plays his heart out on this one…

–This is by far the most mellow mix so far. Enjoy..Chris Davis (7/22/05)
