Not For Kids Only - Jerry Garcia & David Grisman

Of the many collaborations between these old timey old timers, this is the least po-faced. More relaxed in its own way than the freewheelin' Pizza Tapes. And all the better for it. Includes a lovely version of Elizabeth Cotten's Freight Train and an outstanding closer the trad. Shenandoah done as epic orchestral lullaby. If you ever wondered how Teddy Bear's Picnic would sound done Bourbon St style (damn fine), here's your chance. Like the tin says: Not For Kids Only (though if you have some little ones handy, they'll love this).
