Old & In The Way - Live at the Boarding House
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.
A 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 and In The Way - The Complete Boarding House Shows is
due for release on the fortieth anniversary - October 1st, 2013.
