Re:Terrapin, an interesting listen here from the rehearsal sessions, where they play way beyond where they used to end it live:

You just reminded me of the intro riff to Starship on that album. Classic Jerry.ELPManticore wrote:Not that I'd say its his greatest, but I'm pretty sure he did the solo on Paul Katner/Grace Slick's MauMau (on Blows against the empire) is one of Jer's heaviest solos.
That is a great solo, but it's from Compliments, Garcia's 2nd solo record. Just some of my typical nitpicking. "Compliments" by the way was really just a fan nickname: it was officially titled Garcia, same as the first one.BlobWeird wrote:Awesome solo. Just love how he comes into it with the bends.astroman99 wrote:One of my favorites is the solo from " Turn On The Bright Lights" from his first solo studio album with Butterflies(?).
See the previous post.mttourpro wrote:I have to wonder if my favorite Jerry studio solo is even Jerry, in that it's the most sick screaming guitar playing in the middle of Terrapin--the part that's really fast picking---it could be a synth or something else but I've always liked to believe it was Jerry playing his ass off.
That would be the Flyer part I believe.
It is off of Texican Badman, a Rowan album from the mid-late 70's. Great album Garcia and Kreutzmann are on a few stand out tunes including Sweet Melinda, along with Kahn and Grisman.Emoto wrote:I'm scratching my head here.
