The following is an informal pre-show backstage interview with Jerry Garcia from the Paramount Theatre in Portland, Oregon, October 2, 1977. Unusually personal and casual. Just some guys hangin’ and chattin’ (and snortin’). There’s a reason they opened with Casey Jones that night!
Jerry discusses the upcoming Egypt trip, his newest guitar, the politics of playing abroad, and just about any other subject that happens to arise.
What a joy!
