Jerry Garcia and David Grisman Garcia/Grisman on numbered limited edition 180-gram double LP from Mobile Fidelity!

Contemporary interest in roots music kick-started by stellar Grammy-nominated 1991 collaboration

1/2" / 30 IPS analog master direct to lathe

Recording now more realistic, close-up, intimate, and enveloping: First time ever on LP!

Garcia and Grisman put on virtuosic performance, make way through pop standards, blues classics, folk staples, bluegrass jaunts, and more

Jerry Garcia achieved monumental accomplishments over a prolific career, yet the guitarist never sounded better than on his first official collaboration with longtime friend and fellow instrumental maestro David Grisman.

Indeed, contemporary interest in roots music can be directly traced to this stellar Grammy-nominated 1991 collaboration. Putting distinctive rustic spins on pop standards, blues classics, and folk staples, the kindred musical spirits' earnest authenticity and relaxed intimacy are matched only by virtuosic playing and superb production.

Unadorned with any post-production tricks or overdubs, Garcia/Grisman breathes with naturalism and presence. You will effortlessly detect the full body of the instruments, witness the woody grain textures, and get lost in the surprisingly velvety qualities of Garcia's lullaby-like singing on this Mobile Fidelity 180-gram LP pressing.

Pals since the mid-1960s, Garcia and Grisman bonded over their love for traditional folk and bluegrass. The two teamed up amidst what became a gold rush of top-notch productivity and creativity for Garcia. Partnering with bassist Jim Kerwin and percussionist/fiddler Joe Craven, the pair approaches every passage with innate ease, as if either musician could finish the others sentence. The affable chemistry and soothing interplay wash over a selection of songs as notable for their diversity as the way Garcia and "Dawg" turn them into the equivalent of old friends you haven't seen in years.

The quartet delves into Celtic themes ("Two Soldiers"), jazz-grass ("Grateful Dawg"), old-world ballads ("Russian Lullaby"), and Appalachian flavors ("Walkin' Boss") with nonpareil skill and soulfulness. Garcia and Grisman's tandem picking throughout epitomize sublime. And for many listeners, the duo's revised version of the Grateful Dead staple "Friend of the Devil" ranks as the finest-ever recorded, the pace patient, the narrative vocals heartfelt, and the synchronous solos tailor-made for the enveloping progression. Better yet, it's all captured in astonishing fidelity.

Great sound. Black background, zip for surface noise. Jerry left of center, Dave on the right, vocals right of center. This is beautiful, peaceful music with a recording of the highest order!

Absolutely jaw dropping reference sound quality!

I picked this up on a lark since I already have the Tape Project version and that one already sounded great. I was not expecting the utter sonic revelation that the Mobile Fidelity LP set would open up. The soundstage is even more 3D and sound projects in a more realistic way.

6/5 stars.

Fantstic Recording!

I came across this unknown (to me) title in local store. I found many comments by others (here and elsewhere) with nothing but praise. Being a big Grisman fan, I added it to my "July 4th cart". Boy, this is a super quiet LP and is on it's way to becoming one of my favorite's. A very personal sounding recording with great music and sound. My only gripe (small one) is the way the two solo instrumentalists were mixed/recorded. It seemed like the placement was a bit exaggerated, creating a center stage "hole" when no vocals present. But this is easily overlooked when listening with the "heart" not the "brain".

Now, if we could only get Grisman Quintet's first LP and "Old And In The Way" with Grisman/Garcia reissued !! (Maybe the "powers that be" will see my note and agree. Please!!)

WOW! This is the most incredible sounding Mo-Fi since Ry Cooder "Jazz." The clarity, richness and full-bodied sound of this recording is truly breath-taking, not to mention the fantastic music to go with it! A masterpiece! Just get this--before it disappears!
