One week ago today we shared the exciting news that
Grisman has released high-definition recordings of two shows featuring his
Old & In The Way band from 40 years ago as Old & In The Way –
Boarding House Tapes via Acoustic Oasis. The compilation features 55 tracks, 14 of
which had never been issued before, performed by Grisman, Jerry Garcia on banjo, John Kahn
on bass, guitarist Peter Rowan and fiddle virtuoso Vassar Clements.
We're excited to share one of the tracks that had never been issued before - "Old and in
way Breakdown" - from the October 1, 1973 concert. Check it out:
"This traditional sounding banjo tune was written by Jerry for the band. This particular
track is one of the 14 previously unissued performances from these two shows and features
some great fiddle playing by Vassar as well as some really driving 'hardcore' bluegrass
banjo pickin' by Garcia," Grisman told JamBase about the track.
Head over to Acoustic Oasis to purchase and download the entire compilation.
