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.

Old And In The Way, 6-06-1973

Here is another side project that Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead was involved in in the early to mid seventies. It is a blugrass band called Old And In The Way, with the great Vassar Clements, Peter Rowan, and David Grisman. I have posted some shows of this band before. Again it is a good quality soundboard recording.
