  • "Merle [sic] Saunders Experience"
  • review: [positive] Harlow 1973: Garcia and Saunders "returned to the BH for a two-night stay. They were joined by guitarist George Pichner [sic], ... an important enough part of the group to deserve equal billing." The show was late starting: at "9:30 we got word that the band was still waiting for the bass player. Five minutes later he was outside looking for a parking space, and eventually came walking in through the audience, being occasionally booed and heckled". Show started just before ten with "That's A Touch I Like". Compares Garcia's guitar to a good, dry white wine (it was already Palo Alto, after all). "A friend named Sarah helped with the vocals on some numbers, and particularly shone on "Honey Chile". Her voice is not great, and might not stand on its own, but it blends very nicely with Garcia's guitar. ... In the middle of the set there was a long, beautiful instrumental number in which everyone had some solo space. ... Pichner [sic], who had been playing mostly rhythm guitar so far, did some good leads, à la Eric Clapton at times. His somewhat harsher tone sets off Garcia and Saunders very well." Namecheck Bill Vitt. "Bassist John Kahn was certainly worth waiting for. Both in backup and solo playing, he is a real stylist. At times the flair in his left-hand fingerings reminded me of a classical guitarist. Also mentions That's All Right, Lonely Avenue, ISTE ... "first rate musicians really working together".
