Tom Banjo | Saturday, April 4th, 2020

Old And In The Way from the Community Center in Stinson Beach, Ca reveals a band at the height of its powers. Virtuoso musicians, tight three part harmony and a repertoire of material well honed, they didn’t drop a beat. This was actually an audience recording that was so nice to listen to that I originally thought it was a soundboard. The crowd was that respectful and quiet. if this was a typical JGB show at The Stone, or Keystone, the crowd would have been partying too hard to appreciate the silence during the songs we have here. Although some outlets do not say so, at one point, Vassar Clements is introduced letting us know he is the power behind the amazing fiddle playing. There were a couple of cuts, and the only one that hurt was Working On A Building, but this is a toe tapping, knee slapping ride all around. Jerry plays the banjo and doesn’t sing too many lead as Peter Rowan takes charge here.

I was at this OAITW show at Stinson Beach Community Center 9/30/73 – but Vassar Clements was not. Peter Greene was on fiddle at this show. I sat on the floor front row, about two feet right in front of Jerry.

Wonderful show and great time!!
