The Jerry Garcia Acoustic Band: Ragged But Right

From the Grateful Dead website
This item is now available for PRE-ORDER ONLY. Item is estimated to ship November 16, 2010.

Did you know that the original intention was for there to be a Vol. 2 of JGAB music? It’s true: With Garcia’s blessing, Sandy Rothman assembled a second disc of 14 other tunes plucked from the group’s historic Broadway run at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre in October ’87 and subsequent shows at the Wiltern. Why it never came out is mysterious, but the great news is that now, with some additional recent tweaking by Sandy, comes Ragged But Right, a warm and wonderful companion disc that will slide comfortably in your CD rack next to Almost Acoustic

Songs include: “Ragged But Right,” “Short Life of Trouble,” “I Ain’t Never,” “Trouble in Mind,” “Drifting With the Tide,” “Rosa Lee McFall,” “Two Soldiers,” “If I Lose,” “Bright Morning Star,” “Goodnight Irene,” “It’s A Long, Long Way to the Top of the World,” “Drifting Too Far From the Shore,” “Turtle Dove.” The harmonies soar, the playing is impeccable—man, that was a good band!

Recorded live at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre, NYC, the Wiltern Theatre, Los Angeles, and the Warfield Theatre, San Francisco, in October and December, 1987.
