Old & In The Way

Old & in the Way was a one-shot bluegrass band whose legacy lasted far longer than the band. Led by Grateful Dead member Jerry Garcia (banjo, vocals), the band also featured David Grisman (mandolin, vocals), Vassar Clements (fiddle), Peter Rowan (guitar, vocals), and John Kahn (bass). Garcia formed the band in 1973 as a way to revisit his bluegrass roots and demonstrate his affection for the music. To round out the lineup, he recruited Clements and Kahn as well as Grisman and Rowan, who were both West Coast session musicians who had previously played together in the band Muleskinner. Taking their name from a Grisman composition, Old & in the Way played a handful of gigs, most of them at the Boarding House in San Francisco in October. An album, also called Old & in the Way, was culled from these shows but not released until 1975 on the Grateful Dead's own record label, Round. The record combined standards and Rowan originals, which later became standards. Although the album was the only one the lineup released during the 1970s, the members continued to play together in various permutations over the next two decades, and the record continued to sell steadily. The group reunited after Garcia's death in 1995, releasing a second album (actually composed of 1973 recordings), That High Lonesome Sound, in early 1996. A third album of 1973 vintage appeared at the end of 1997. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

That high, lonesome sound
This is a great band
the whole lineup save Jerry played the Strawberry Music Festival in '91. that was my first Strawberry and musical event for the ages.

The lyrics reprinted are incorrect, the first verse is repeated, but there is actually a second verse that does not appear on the reprint of the lyrics. Please correct this. This song is a classic for many reasons, the least of which is Jerry's amazing banjo solo, so it needs to be preserved properly for generations to come.

I did not go to the Boarding House for O&ITW and I regret it , they were so fine

The band also played at the Keystone Berkeley, a small club where I worked. Jerry and the boys were always over the top!
Bought it in 75- top 10 that I've ever purchased-
Thinking of you Kyle-
Makes me happy just to listen to it.
so few know about this band

One of the best bands of that century, in that genre. That 'yodeling' brings chills!
one of my all-time faves...
Love it
Old and in the Way live at the boarding house is one of my most prized possesions. I highly recommend it to anyone who loves bluegrass. The playing of Jerry and David with Vassar is stellar. It has every song that is on this album with the exception on the Hobo Song + so much more!
Never saw Jerry play banjo or pedal steel, though I enjoyed him many a night on electric and on rare occasion on acoustic guitar. It sure is nice to have these recordings with him on banjo. It would be awesome if they had videotaped it.
Yeah i feel lucky to be able to jam this fine bluegrass.
