Critical reception[edit]

Professional ratings
Review scores

On Allmusic, Lindsay Planer said, "The quartet is led by Jerry Garcia and features longtime Garcia associate John Kahn (bass), Melvin Seals (keyboards), David Kemper (drums), Gloria Jones (vocals), and Jackie LaBranch (vocals). The selections accurately image the wide spectrum of pop, R&B, rock and soul covers Garcia and company played circa the late '80s and early '90s.... Garcia's rush upon rush of incendiary fretwork equals the verve in practically any Grateful Dead rendering during the early '90s. However, the primary focus is divided between the superior choice of material and equally adroit execution.... The initiated and initially curious alike will find much to enjoy and discover throughout Jerry Garcia Band."[3]
