Old & in The Way Live At Sonoma State - 11/4/73

Photo for Ad 210762

The release of this live recording marks the 50th anniversary of both this legendary bluegrass supergroup and the gig they played on a Sunday afternoon in November, 1973. This particular performance was captured on tape by noted music photographer Ed Perlstein, and copies have circulated for years.

For this release, we obtained the original master tape and for the first time in five decades, this music is available in Hi-Definition (24-bit, 96 kHz) sound. The tunes and songs are exceptionally well played with that old-time bluegrass drive and Vassar Clements inspiring Spud, Red, Dawg and Mule to some of the best moments in the all-too-short life span of this unique ensemble. To top it all off, Ramblin’ Jack Elliott sits in with the band and renders two country classics - a once-in-a-lifetime occurrence at Sonoma State University in Rohnert Park, California, just 50 years ago!
