Old & In The Way - Live at the Boarding House 10/1/73 Hi-Def Master

Forty years ago on a monday night, a bluegrass band walked on to the stage of The Boarding House in San Francisco. The band included two of Bill Monroe's former Blue Grass Boys, guitarist Peter Rowan and fiddle virtuoso Vassar Clements, mandolinist David Grisman and Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead picking banjo along with his bass playing sidekick, John Kahn.

WA week later the same group played there again and recorded what would become one of the most influential albums in Bluegrass history - Old & in the Way. Now forty years later, both shows are being released as High Definition (24 bit, 96 khz) downloads on Grisman's AcousticOasis.com. This will be the first release of the complete shows by this unique ensemble and includes 55 tracks, 14 of which have never been released in any format.

For the past three years Acoustic Oasis has been Grisman's pet project with many "Deluxe" releases in high definition with much previously unreleased gems from his extensive archives. Old & In The Way - The Complete Boarding House Shows is due for release on the fortieth anniversary - October 1st, 2013.
