Editorial Reviews

Product Description

The culmination of 40 sessions by Jerry Garcia and his longtime friend David Grisman! Garcia reveals his love and understanding of so many kinds of music here, doing James Brown's I'll Go Crazy ; Jimmie Rodgers' Blue Yodel #9 ; Bob Dylan's The Ballad of Frankie Lee and Judas Priest ; Merle Travis's Dark as a Dungeon , and more revelatory performances.

This (possibly) final installment in the Garcia/Grisman series leans heavily on a country music repertoire, as the pair tackles tracks by Jimmie Rodgers, Merle Travis (a jazzed-up "Nine Pound Hammer"), George Jones, Mel Tillis (a bluesy, gently shuffling "I Ain't Never"), and Freddie Hart. They also make detours into the realms of traditional folk, reggae (Jimmy Cliff's "Sittin' Here in Limbo"), soul (Garcia's passionate run through James Brown's "I'll Go Crazy" gets an E for effort), and Bob Dylan (a delightfully understated "Ballad of Frankie Lee and Judas Priest"). Sure, Garcia's vocal cords might have seen better days, but you can never find fault with his heartfelt, emotionally captivating singing. The picking here is tasteful and low-key, and the overall result is a warm, relaxed stroll through the duo's many musical influences. --Marc Greilsamer

5.0 out of 5 stars Master Musicians at their "laid back" best. April 28, 2004
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is the age when some record companies release EVERYTHING in full cds or as "bonus tracks." Much of this music should have stayed in the can. This is not the case with this cd. In some ways this is a better "soundtrack" than on the great film "Grateful Dawg." You have two friends, in a relaxed atmosphere, playing tunes for the pure enjoyment. Don't let this make you think this is a cd of sloppy playing, with a few moments of brillance making the purchase "worth it." These are two master musicians who on a "bad day" could outplay their peers, and on their "best days" could outplay a few legends!
This album should be brought because it is a great album, period. Lay back, put your feet up and enjoy!

If it seemed like Jerry Garcia got better with age, then this CD is proof. His vocals on the first cut "Been All Around This World" sound as good or better than most Grateful Dead tunes. This is an excellent cut, perhaps the best on the CD; a song I've heard The Dead cover before it landed on this CD. Overall, I'd rate this at about 3.5 stars, and I'll round it up to 4 stars for the amazon review. Some of the tunes are great, others are just OK. Other highlights are 'Take Me', a very nice, slow arrangement and 'The Ballad of Frankie Lee and Judas Priest' Most of the tunes contain very tasty guitar leads from Garcia and the usual excellent work by the Master of the Mando, David Grisman. If you're a fan of the Grateful Dead and/or the Dawg, then this is a must-have.

5.0 out of 5 stars Happy with the Bottom of the Barrel May 3, 2004
Format:Audio CD
If this release is indeed the bottom of Dawg's barrel, I hope he scrapes a little more off for us. I don't have much to add, but I did want to defend the version of "The Ballad of Frankie Lee & Judas Priest." I loved Jerry's delivery of it; his storytelling tone of voice makes the ballad come to life in a way that equals Dylan's original. Jerry 'got' Bob in a way most who cover Dylan songs don't. This one might not be as truly great as the first Garcia/Grisman or "Shady Grove," but it's still a great listen. Thanks, Dawg!

4.0 out of 5 stars Another swell Grisman-Garcia album September 2, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Another collection of nice, relaxed, acoustic duets, culled from the many hours of informal jam sessions that these two shaggy roots music old-timers held over the years. Jerry croons country oldies like the George Jones classic, "Take Me" and Merle Travis's "Dark As A Dungeon" and "Nine Pound Hammer," reggae tunes like "Sitting Here In Limbo" and several traditional songs, which help anchor the album's old-timey sound. The sedate, laid-back version of Bob Dylan's epic "Ballad Of Frankie Lee And Judas Priest" is a highlight, though, honestly, there's no weak link to be heard on this album. These performances are understated and sincere, and though Grisman may have mined his archives several times for similar material, he is certainly not scraping the bottom of the barrel here... Not at all!

4.0 out of 5 stars I'll Go Crazy February 23, 2013
By Big Fan
Format:Audio CD
After reading all of the reviews here and listening to this CD multiple times, I'm left feeling the CD would have benefited greatly by having only 11 songs instead of 12. Seriously,... I'll Go Crazy if I have to listen to how BAD Jerry's vocals are on that tune one more time; I know, the reason why this is the case is two-fold, the song was recorded much later than the rest of the tunes on this CD and Jerry's voice is too far gone at this point in addition to the fact the song requires a higher vocal register that Jerry just can't pull off. Unfortunately, they also waited too long to record one of my favs, Sitting Here In Limbo. Again, Jerry's voice is just way to strained and it's a shame because this version should have been epic. Luckily, we have 80's JGB shows as testament to how great that song could be performed. If I'll Go Crazy had been forever shelved, it would have made this final release much more convincing and regarded as another classic instead of a leftover. Lastly, Matt Eakle's flute brings such a refreshing sound to track 8 that I'm baffled why they didn't use him where ever possible on this CD; it would have given this release more of a distinct cohesive voice and thus would have made a much bigger statement. I'm rounding 3.5 stars up to 4 since the CD deserves going the latter direction.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best of the Garcia/Grisman Albums February 10, 2013
By John D
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've checked most all of the G/G albums and this is by far what I feel the best. Nearly every songs is excellent, sound qaulity is very good even for an audiophile. If you're a Jerry fan this is a big thumbs up album.

5.0 out of 5 stars More Beautiful Music From Jerry and the Dawg October 29, 2008
Format:Audio CD
As a long time Dead fan who mostly listens to old timey country, blues, folk and bluegrass nowadays this eclectic batch of Gracia and Grisman offerings was a tasty treat. The playing is excellent throughout and I like the rough, worn tone of Gracia's voice at this stage in his career. Highlights for me included "I'm Troubled", "Sittin' Here In Limbo" and "Drink Up And Go Home".

But it's on "Dark As A Dungeon" that I felt the strongest dose of Dead style musical magic. Somehow Garcia's vocals make this a song not just about a coal miner but about all of us as we trudge through the work-a-day world, feeling trapped and hoping for something better. I would also encourage listeners to seek out the originals by great traditional artists such as Jimmie Rodgers and Merle Travis. But here Jerry and the Dawg serve it up their way and it's a pleasure to listen to.
