Jerry Moore R.I.P.

Not much significance unless you collect live shows, but legendary Grateful Dead taper Jerry Moore passed away yesterday...He was a legend in music circles as he along with Barry Glassberg, Louis Falanga, Rob Bertrando, Bob Menke etc. were among the pioneers of audience taping of shows and it is due to them some gems exist to this day...Interestingly the Grateful Dead used some of those recordings in their legal releases as there was no other evidence of those shows that existed in their own vaults...If you have heard some great sounding 70's recordings of bands like the Dead, The Band, Floyd you are bound to have heard the handiwork of such folks...I never bothered to find out whether these heavyweights were ever involved in recording MO in their prime period...I am sure they were as these were all NY based folks...
