“The Grateful Dead
was, for me, the gateway to entire worlds of music. Country music, bluegrass and the blues. Just as the band was driven by Jerry Garcia’s musical interests and obsessions, so too was I captivated by the spirit and playing of Jerry and sought him out in various combinations. So we celebrate the great Garcia in the playlist here. From his vivid pedal-steel playing on Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young
’s Teach Your Children
to the high lonesome sound of Old & In the Way, Jerry was always an invitation to transport. And just FYI: Camper Van Beethoven
for fun, and Jorma
, friend of Jerry, because he too is forever.” — Music Supervisor Randall Poster
