Today, we're given another taste of what will be included on the upcoming Garcia Live archival album titled Garcia Live Volume Six, recorded July 5, 1973 at Lion's Share in San Anselmo, California. Listen to the jam heavy "That's Alright, Mama" above, courtesy of the Jerry Garcia YouTube account.

Originally titled "That's All Right," the song was written and recorded in 1946 by blues singer Arthur "Big Boy" Crudup. Eight years later, "That's All Right" was recorded by Elvis Presley for Sun Records as the first single of his career.

Jerry and Merl's version retains the same uptempo feel, highlighted by Saunders' church-style organ playing and Garcia's free-flowing guitar riffs that carry you on a musical journey. Bill Vitt's drums and John Kahn's bass lay down a solid rhythm that allows the song to soar for 13 minutes.

Last month, the Jerry Garcia estate shared another track from Garcia Live Volume Six, "Finders Keepers," which you can listen to here on Zumic.

Pick up Garcia Live Volume Six in the official Jerry Garcia webstore. It's scheduled to be released on June 24, 2016.
