That High Lonesome Sound by Old and in the Way featuring Jerry Garcia - review

That High Lonesome Sound review

That High Lonesome Sound is the follow up to Old and in the Way's classic self titled album. This release is an additional fourteen songs of that great line up of musicians featuring Jerry Garcia, Peter Rowan, David Grisman, Vasar Clements, and John Kahn.  Originally Richard Green was the fiddle player, but living in Los Angeles he dropped out and was replaced by Clements. Green later became a member of Garcia’s 1974 acoustic band The Great American String Band. 

This release is slightly more traditional bluegrass music than it’s predecessor where they tackle three Bill Monroe songs, “Wicked Path of Sin,” “Uncle Pen,” and “I’m on my Way Back to the Old Home” to perfection. They do justice to the classic "Orange Blossom Special" with everyone giving their two cents, but Vasar Clements shining strongest.  Also exceptional is the rendition of “Catfish John,” a song that was first released on Garcia’s Reflection album and he performed with his electric band. 

The only complaint I have is that it took them so long to release these songs. That High Lonesome Sound is a CD packed of great music. Moreover, there is an outstanding 20-page booklet with rare photos as well as notes by bluegrass scholar Neil Rosenberg. by Barry Small
