The Tradition Lives
After months of anticipation here it is - Shady Grove (ACD-21). the brand new Garcia/Grisman collection of previously unreleased acoustic music - this time traditional folk songs and ballads including memorable versions of the title track as well as "Stealin'", "Jackaroo," and "The Sweet Sunny South." Five tracks are duets two of which feature Jerry playing 5-string banjo with David playing guitar or 5-string banjo, five tracks feature the Garcia/Grisman band with DGQ members Joe Craven on fiddle and percussion and Jim Kerwin on bass, and three tracks are trios with special guests Bryan Bowers (autoharp), Matt Eakle (flute) and Will Scarlett (harmonica).
Shady Grove was recorded in Dawg Studios during the last five years of Jerry's life and shows the breadth and depth of Jerry Garcia as one to the great interpretive American folk artistis of this or any generation. This soulful set of 13 classic acoustic performances comes in a special slipcase, and includes a comprehensive booklet of notes by John Cohen of the New Lost City Ramblers, newly published photos, lyrics to the songs and a selected folk discography. This one is a must for all Garcia/Grisman fans and lovers of traditional American folk culture.
With this release Acoustic Disc utilizes the newly developed High Definition Compatible Digital (HDCD) process which produces recordings with greatly-improved fidelity when played on standard compact disc players.
