Latest Update: June 3, 2007

Although it didn't start out this way, this page has sort of turned in to home for the eHandbills produced for recent Country Joe and Country Joe Band tours of the UK as promoted by spoon player extraordinaire John Roberts of Barking Spider.  It is also home to the Country Joe Show List that continues to document details of shows played by Country Joe, with and without the Fish, the Country Joe Band etc., since 1965.  Many of the early shows took place at the Jabberwock in Berkeley; Corry Arnold has provided a brief history here.

Double CD of Country Joe at The Borderline, London (April 18, 2006)

Hot off the press.  A new double CD package of Joe's Borderline show from April 18, 2006 has been issued to coincide with his early summer UK tour.  Copies will be available at each venue on the tour as well as via mail order through both Joe and ourselves.  Again, this is a limited edition release available by clicking on this link.

This is a brand new double CD set from Country Joe McDonald, legend of Woodstock, Monterey Pop and the Summer of Love – which sees its 40th anniversary this year.  It is an official release of Joe’s own Rag Baby label and features Joe and acoustic guitar in London on his 2006 solo tour.
