Moon Jasmine: The Night Jerry Garcia Forgot To Tell Me Something And I Forgot To Ask

Al Aronowitz, The Blacklisted Masterpieces of Al Aronowitz, 1978

1. San Francisco

The folksinger had some tunes I thought he ought to record with a rock band and so I'd told him I'd get him a rock band. All I had to do was write a story about Jerry Garcia.
