PLAYING IN THE BAND (REPRISE)
Jesse McReynolds was half of the great bluegrass duo Jim and Jesse, heroes to Jerry Garcia and Sandy Rothman when they went on their cross-country trek in 1964. Sandy gets the credit for inspiring Jesse to create this CD of Grateful Dead songs (and shares producer credit, too), which also includes contributions from David Nelson and Stu Allen. Songs of the Grateful Dead is a splendid musical tribute. The song included in this week’s program is the only non-Dead number – it’s a new song co-written by Jesse and Grateful Dead lyricist Robert Hunter.
The Bonerama GD medley was recorded by my old friend Marty Lefkowitz, who also secured permission form the band for me to stick it in your ears. Thanks, Marty!
