  • Whether one loves or hates the Grateful Dead--the only options for most--Jerry Garcia's undeniable talents as a musician and originator simply can't be argued. His unique brew of bluegrass, jazz, and exploratory rock created an industry of imitators and still stands as Haight-Ashbury's most indelible thumbprint on American music. For appreciators of this talent who could otherwise take or leave the Dead's uneven catalog, Rhino's two-disc VERY BEST OF JERRY GARCIA is a perfect career summation.
  • Although highlights from his '70s studio output like "Deal," "Sugaree," and "Loser" collected on disc one have aged quite well, the true gems are the live Jerry Garcia Band and Old & In the Way cuts on disc two. The former light up Dylan gems like "Senor (Tales of Yankee Power)" and "Positively 4th Street" while the latter own "Deep Elem Blues." Hammond maestro Merl Saunders joins Garcia for an epic "Dear Prudence," one of the second disc's many highlights.

Professional Reviews
Dirty Linen (p.48) - "More than just a fine songwriter and bandleader, Garcia was also an innovative interpreter, which is what makes this second disc a welcome addition."
