Doug Sahm, Leon Russell, Jerry Garcia and Friends Thanksgiving Jam
Armadillo World Headquarters, Austin, TX November 23, 1972

BAND:

Doug Sahm – vocals, guitar
Leon Russell – vocals, piano
Jerry Garcia – vocals, guitar, pedal steel
Phil Lesh – bass
* Jerry Barnett – drums (Shiva’s Headband)
Mary Egan – fiddle (Greazy Wheels)
Benny Thurman – fiddle (13th Floor Elevator bassist)

* The drummer is often listed as Bill Kreutzman from the Dead, but apparently he didn’t play: “Though he was in attendance that evening, there is no verifiable evidence that Bill Kreutzmann sat in with the band. When asked a few years ago, the owner of the Armadillo seemed to recall Bill feeling sick that night.”
