Notes
  • Sue: contract dated 10/19/75, two shows of two sets each. $10,000 guarantee for the two shows, plus 60% gross over $27k. GP $35,254. Given that the shows sold out, we have to assume that JGB made that percentage, too, another $4k+.
  • exante: Flatte 1975: Not that surprisingly, given the Dead-NYC connections and that this was JGB's first New York City show, rumors were flying: "Persons close to the Dead office in California have been dropping hints," it was reported, that these Bottom Line billings would end in "a full-blown Dead show", what with Kingfish and Keith and Donna Godchaux also touring the eastern time zone (Flatte 1975). But it was not to be.
  • review: [negative] Dove 1975: describes Garcia as one of those "middle-of-the-road entertainers who trundle out their old hits time after time," unworthy of the kind of adulation fans gave Jerry. "Retrenchment ... inertia ... going through motions."
  • review: [positive] Kirby 1975: both shows SRO. Promoted by Ron Delsener "in association with John Silver's [sic] Monarch Productions", i.e., John Scher. "Little to see … as they give a musical, rather than a visual performance"
  • ref: Variety, October 29, 1975, p. 60
  • JGMF: JGB's First Gig in NYC - October 28, 1975 - Beacon Theatre (early show)
