All of the music recordings on this site are recordings of independent origin (ROIOs) Music that has not been officially released. If you are an artist or a legal representative of an artist and you do not want your ROIO shared on my site for free among your fans (and creating new fans), just tell me in the comment area and I will remove them. By the way these recordings exist. They won't go away. All of them can be found at various places on line. Sharing just keeps the fans that support the artists from having to get ripped off by purchasing them on auction sites, and it also introduces music to people who would never have known the artist, creating a stronger fan base.

The Waybacks and Bob Weir, 2006

Here are three shows of the Waybacks with Bob Weir of the Grateful Dead as a guest. There are also other guests like Sam Bush on mandolin, and Gillian Welch and David Rawlings. I'm sure the folks at Merle Fest were quite surprised when the Waybacks set got extended into these fun jam sessions. Friday night on the main stage, the group, along with Bob Weir, performed a great set of Waybacks originals, Grateful Dead songs and covers including the Beatles "Tomorrow Never Knows", the Rolling Stones "19th Nervous Breakdown." and "The Last Time" and Bob Dylans "Like A Rolling Stone". The "St. Stephen" > "The Eleven" > "Last Time" all jammed together for me is the highlight. The second show was played Saturday night on the Hillside Stage The 45 minutes that were scheduled turned into almost two hours of jamming. Again they play Waybacks originals and Greatful Dead songs and some great covers including Led Zeppelins "Kasmir", The Bands "The Weight" and Dylans " All Along The Watchtower". This time with Sam Bush on mandolin. And all recorded from a nice FM radio broadcast. Need I say more? You need to check this out!
