August looks to be Jerry Garcia month over at Rhino, as they have a nice set of material scheduled for release this month in honor of the man and his music. The first DVD from the Jerry Garcia Band entitled “Live at Shorline” is out now. It was recorded on September 1, 1990 at the Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View ,CA. This show took the place of a scheduled Grateful Dead show that was cancelled due to the death of Brent Mydland, the legendary keyboard player for the GD. The fill in performance of the Jerry Garcia Band makes this even more special to Deadhead and music fans in general.

On the 23rd of this month, Rhino will release “The Jerry Garcia Collection, Vol. 1: Legion Of Mary”. The Legion of Mary was a group formed by Garcia in the seventies, and this is a rare chance to listen to the band in their prime. Check the links below for all the info. More to come soon!
