Saunders, Garcia, Kahan and Vitt's Live at the Keystone is a great listen whether or not you have any affinity towards the Dead or not. Laid back jams of Dylan, Jimmy Cliff and some nice standards make this LP enjoyable for many different listening experiences. This is a great band and the two record set gives them plenty of time to stretch out.

Merl Saunders & Jerry Garcia :: Positively 4th Street. Below is our conversation with the sole living member from the group, Bill Vitt, who sheds some light on the group and recordings from those nights. Bill Vitt: Howard Wales introduced me to Jerry when Howard and I were doing an organ duo and also backing up folks like Freddie King and James Cotton. Jerry started showing up when he was not on the road with the Grateful Dead. In the early days, it was almost a family as far as the San Francisco and Marin musicians went. A great song about performing: Cats on the bandstand, Give’em each a big hand, Anyone who sweats like that must be all right.
