Reissue On 180g Vinyl LP!

Originally released in 1978, Cats Under The Stars was the first album to officially acknowledge the Jerry Garcia Band, comprised of Garcia, Keith & Donna Godchaux, John Kahn, and Ron Tutt, by name. Garcia-Hunter penned gems including "Rubin and Cherise," "Gomorrah" and the album’s title track anchor what Garcia considered his finest solo studio record.

A lot of time and effort went into the sessions. John Kahn commented in an interview: "We put so much blood into that record. That was our major try. It was all new material and we did it ourselves. We spent so many hours in the studio."

Garcia also commented on the efforts that went into the recording: "I worked real hard at it and was very diligent and almost scientific about it. There was a lot of heart in it, you might say."

The record was not a financial success, but remained Garcia's favorite recording. Garcia discussed the LP in an interview in the early '80s: "Cats Under The Stars is my favorite one. That's the one that I'm happiest with, from every point of view in which I operate on that record."

In the early '90s he still thought well of the album: "As far as I'm concerned Cats Under The Stars is my most successful record – even though it's my least successful record! I've always loved it and it just never went anywhere." In an interview with Joel Selvin he was more succinct; "[Cats Under The Stars] had everything – chops, production, songs."

This 2017 re-issue was re-mastered by Fred Kevorkian at Kevorkan Mastering and pressed to 180-gram vinyl.
