Jerry Garcia and David Grisman - Grateful Dawg-  review

Grateful Dawg review

Jerry Garcia and David Grisman - Grateful DawgFor those who did not get a chance to see Jerry Garcia and David Grisman live, this is the next best thing. I had a chance to see the film at the theater on a big screen and it is fantastic.  We are treated to a small sampling of their repertoire including their classic "Ariba." 

Grateful Dawg is not strictly live footage, but it does include plenty.  Additionally, there are many interviews with people that knew Garcia including insightful commentary directly from David Grisman. 

The music is mostly live performances, but there are some studio outtakes and even some Old and in the Way, Garcia and Grisman's band from 1973. The unreleased 1991 "The Thrill is Gone" music video by Justin Kreutzmann is also included. 

If you are deciding whether to get the video of CD soundtrack keep in mind that the video does have interviews over portions some of the songs. by Barry Small
