If you have a favorite artist on this disc, start there, and then branch out. It is AMAZING to me that this album is heretofore unrated! Jerry Garcia fans who do not know this side of him are in for a real treat. Bonnie Raitt fans the same. David Grisman is perhaps the most amazing mandolin player I am acquainted with. Listen to him working with Jerry's guitar on Dawgnation and you will understand how it is that I say he is one of the principal reasons some rock bands now have a mandolin (Railroad Earth, Leftover Salmon, etc.). "Newgrass" really started with "Old And In The Way" back in the 70's (Grisman and Garcia powering that early organization), but it obviously has grown and developed since then. If you like energetic, acoustic, melodic, and most of all musically accomplished music, you're very likely to enjoy the heck out of this collection.
The songs on this CD are a mixture of Grisman and various great artists. One of my favorites is "Home" with Bonnie Raitt. There's a nice mixture of styles and genres.
