    Found a bootleg of this recording many years ago entitled Lost and Found. It's an incredible SBD recording. Nice to know a video of this exists! Thanks for sharing! Click image for larger version.

    I still don't take the Dead seriously but I've enjoyed a good bit of the stuff Grisman has done with Garcia. Though mostly due to Grisman on mandolin. I did recently see a great live recoding of Bob Weir doing a cover of Marty Robbins' "Big Iron." I think the band was called Bobby and the Midnites? The guitarist, who did some great riffs on the guitar parts originally played by Grady Martin, was Bobby Cochran, the late, Eddie Cochran's nephew.

    Bobby and the Midnights was one of Bobby's earliest side projects (he has had a lot of them over the years). They did Big Iron quite a few times.

    That is exactly the live version I was referring to at You Tube. Mine is the third comment down, from the top. Eddie Cochran's (Summertime Blues) nephew does some great electric guitar. The original version with Grady Martin on guitar has a more Spanish Flavor to it. Marty Robbins heard a lot of Western tales growing up in Arizona from his uncle who had been a Texas Ranger.

    I've always enjoyed Garcia and Dawg doing BB King's The Thrill is Gone. The Traveling McCoury's do a pretty good version also.

    Jerry's love for acoustic and traditional music had escaped me for years. When I discovered his "other" projects, it became more obvious and I appreciated him more for putting so much of it on tape.

    The Garcia before the Dead project is really worthwhile if you want to deep dive into the roots of Dead music. Much better (to me) as a historical study than strictly as a musical project.

    They are really just an Americana band in some many, many ways. Or at least they started as that.

    for those unaware of it.

    Before the Dead is an album by Jerry Garcia. It is a compilation of early recordings of Garcia playing folk and bluegrass music with various other musicians. The recordings were made from 1961 to 1964, before Garcia co-founded the rock band the Grateful Dead. Produced as a four-CD box set, and also as a five-LP limited edition box set, it was released on May 11, 2018

    I purchased a copy of the Before the Dead CD. I enjoyed it. A friend that was a real Dead Head saw it and flipped. I gave it to her.

    I was unaware.

    Jerry was at some Ash Grove shows witnessing Scotty Stoneman with the Ky. Colonels. I only wish there was some video of those shows. Talk about talent in the room...

    There's a reason you often see Deadheads at bluegrass gigs

    Jerry used to play with bluegrass groups out of Palo Alto. And Palo Alto still has a little connection to that (once you get past the techies and Stanford yuppies). The Tuttle family is from there, and Jack Tuttle works at Gryphon Strings - one of the best shops for acoustic instruments in the whole area.

    As an aside: Ok, it's not Jerry, but... I'm listening to this as I type, stuck inside on this Sunday as we're blanketed in west coast fire smoke: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NNbuOW8KTJQ
