Old & In The Way: Live at the Record Plant, Sausalito, CA,
recorded 21 April, 1973

CD Liner notes:
Jerry Garcia's brief sojourn from the Grateful Dead allowed him time to explore a personal affection for bluegrass music. Combining a traditional genre with a contemporary approach, Gardcia joined forces with like-minded Bay Area musicians to form Old And In The Way. His involvement naturally brought an element of notoriety to the band that would inevitably help in securing the legacy they enjoy today.

Of their occasional performances in California in 1973, their performance for KSAN-FM on 21st April 1973 at the Record Plant, Sausalito, remains possibly their finest. Klondike's retrospective spotlight on Old And In The Way and their seminal performance for KSAN-FM provides a valuable snapshot of their ability to provide improvisational and contemporary fare coupled with the respect for traditional bluegrass music that the band sincerely guarded.
