Garden of Forking Paths
Paul K. & the WeathermenInitial release : 1995
The rear cover of this CD is a picture of the group with a life size cardboard cut-out of Jerry Garcia, looking quite realistic, together with the caption, Jerry Garcia - rhythm guitar. This has led to some confusion as to whether Garcia actual plays on the album. He does not - it was a joke.
Paul K described in an interview how the photo of Garcia came to be on the rear cover of the CD;
On the original version of Garden of Forking Paths, we printed a picture of us standing with a cardboard cutout of Jerry Garcia, and it looked totally real. I wrote a little caption that said Jerry Garcia, rhythm guitar. So immediately we started getting some press, like one reviewer in Switzerland wrote before our show, 'Paul K will be appearing with Jerry Garcia, ex-Grateful Dead,' which I thought was a stroke of genius.
