Garcia Live Volume One is an album by the Jerry Garcia Band. It contains the complete early show and late show performed on March 1, 1980, at the Capitol Theatre in Passaic, New Jersey. It was released on February 19, 2013, by ATO Records, in two formats – as a three-disc CD, and as a digital download.[1][2] The album is the first of a series of archival concert releases called Garcia Live.[3][4][5]

At the time of the Capitol Theatre concerts, the members of the Jerry Garcia Band were Jerry Garcia on guitar and vocals, Ozzie Ahlers on keyboards and vocals, John Kahn on bass, and Johnny de Foncesca on drums. At the late show, Robert Hunter sat in with the band on two songs that he wrote. The concerts were recorded using a 24-track mobile recording truck, and the early show was broadcast on WNEW-FM radio.[1][2][3][4][5]

The cover of the album features a drawing of Tiger, one of Garcia's guitars.

Garcia Live Volume One was released as a five-disc vinyl LP in a limited edition of 5,000 copies on November 28, 2019, as part of Record Store Day Black Friday.[6]

Critical reception[edit]

Professional ratings
Review scores

On Allmusic, Fred Thomas wrote, "Recorded in 1980 at the Capitol Theatre in Passaic, New Jersey, the extensive set list includes only a few Garcia/Dead staples ('Deal', 'Sugaree'), but branches out into more eclectic territory with massively jammed-out versions of covers ranging from the Beatles to Jimmy Cliff. Grateful Dead lyricist Robert Hunter joins the band for an encore including 'Tiger Rose' and 'Promontory Rider'."[7]
