Garcia Live Volume Two is an album by the Jerry Garcia Band. It was recorded live on August 5, 1990, at the Greek Theatre in Berkeley, California. It was released by ATO Records on June 25, 2013, in two formats — as a two-disc CD, and as a digital download.[1][2]

The lineup of the Jerry Garcia Band for this concert — and for most of the band's shows from 1985 to 1995 — was Jerry Garcia on guitar and vocals, Melvin Seals on keyboards, John Kahn on bass, David Kemper on drums, and Jaclyn LaBranch and Gloria Jones on background vocals. Béla Fleck sat in on banjo for the first two songs of the second set.[3][4]

Rosebud, one of Garcia's guitars, is depicted on the album cover.

Allmusic 3.5/5 stars [5]

On Allmusic, Fred Thomas said, "Though it was recorded a full decade after the first installment of this Dick's Picks-like concert archive series, Vol. 2 shares a lot of the same songs from the set list of Vol. 1.... though the feel of the set is far more jammy, summery, and laid-back than Vol. 1, which was bluesy and amped by relative Garcia standards. The protracted and stumbly vibe of the set presented here evokes the archetypal languid outdoor concert energy that the Grateful Dead all but defined in their endless touring, and Garcia's takes on roots rock classics by The Band, Van Morrison, and later-period Dylan help capture the stoned summertime musical snapshot all the more. What truly sets this volume apart from its predecessor is the guest spot by banjo virtuoso Béla Fleck on two songs..."[5]
