Garcia Live Volume 11 is a two-CD live album by the Jerry Garcia Band. It contains the complete concert recorded on November 11, 1993 at the Providence Civic Center in Providence, Rhode Island. It was released on July 12, 2019.[1][2][3][4]

This show was part of what turned out to be the last East Coast tour by the Jerry Garcia Band.[1] The album marks the first release of a Garcia Band concert recorded after 1991. It features the band's long-running musical lineup of Jerry Garcia (guitar, vocals), Melvin Seals (keyboards), John Kahn (bass), David Kemper (drums), Jaclyn LaBranch (vocals), and Gloria Jones (vocals).

Critical reception[edit]

In Relix, Larson Sutton wrote, "The 11th in the Garcia Live series, it's no accident that this 11/11/93 ripper from Providence was chosen to be next, beyond the numeric synchronicity.... First and foremost is Jerry Garcia’s inspired voice and guitar work that proves once again why he was so beloved.... The two-disc collection is recorded quite well, balancing sonically and with strong fidelity each stellar contribution from the always-steady ensemble..."[5]

In Glide Magazine, Doug Collette said, "Opening to rapturous audience acclaim, the penultimate cut, "Don't Let Go", is one of six cuts out of thirteen in double-figure duration on Garcia Live Volume 11, further illustrating why the moniker of this unit was the 'Jerry Garcia Band': every member plays his role to the hilt, not just the man from whom the name derives."[6]

In Grateful Web, Dylan Muhlberg wrote, "1993 was indeed a year which saw [Garcia] reinvigorated, playing with focus and dynamics.... Garcia and the group played their heart out every time he visited Providence. We are grateful to have the crisp restoration of the entire evening’s performance accompanied by an engaging essay by Blair Jackson."[7]
