iTunes Editors’ Notes

With its rare live performances, candid scenes of the two principals, and interviews with friends and family, the Grateful Dawg movie has a casual home-movie ambience. This soundtrack follows suit, mixing important studio tracks with a bevy of unreleased live recordings, making it a boon for hardcore collectors. The live tracks are taken from two very different settings: most are from San Francisco’s Warfield Theater, where David Grisman and Jerry Garcia performed together several times, but two — “Off to Sea Once More” and “Dawg’s Waltz” — were recorded at an impromptu show at the tiny Sweetwater club in Mill Valley, just north of the city. The five Warfield tracks show the duo’s mighty musical range as they move from covers of the Grateful Dead (“Friend of the Devil”) and Jimmy Cliff (“Sitting Here in Limbo”) to exotic modal jazz, old-time, and progressive bluegrass.

Customer Reviews

Impressive music, yet tremendous fun

Apparently David Grisman and Jerry were pals since they used to shepherd dinosaurs part-time to make the rent and the traded intricate solos are practically like a musical dialogue version of the dialogue between Lao Tse and Confucious... I don't understand how the mandolin is different from the guitar, but it seems like there's an analogous color harmony at work, colors that are similar are happy together, and the tunes on this album will blow you away, it's like watching a tapestry being woven as you watch. The movie is interesting, since you can SEE what they're up to, but the music is out-$%^&ing-standing, particularly "Arabia," which is easily worth the price of admission on its own. If you watched the movie, you saw the drummer/percussionist introducing the band after finishing "Arabia" live -- he's trembling with excitement (or acid) (or both) (God bless him), it's interesting to see how the players are after finishing a hot tune like that. You really ought to hear this one, it's worth every penny.

absolutly incredible

if you like jerry garcia and his songs you will love this it is jerry and a mandolin you need to buy this album it is worth the most for the money

Biography

Born: March 23, 1945 in Hackensack, NJ

Genre: Singer/Songwriter

Years Active: '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s

David Grisman is normally associated with the bluegrass wing of country music, but his music owes almost as much to jazz as it does to traditional American folk influences. Because he couldn't think of what to call his unique, highly intricate, harmonically advanced hybrid of acoustic bluegrass, folk, and jazz without leaning toward one idiom or another, he offhandedly decided to call it "dawg music" — a name which, curiously enough, has stuck. A brilliant mandolinist, with roots deep in the...
