Bluegrass Situation put together a play list of the key Jerry Garcia stuff all fans oughtta know — so it includes Grateful Dead and Old and In the Way.
You’ll probably have to sign in for Spotify (at Spotify.com), if you aren’t already registered — but if you’re a Garcia fan, it might be worth it.
If you’re not a Garcia and Dead fan, more is the pity.
It’s a good listen, any time.

“I’m a part of Willie Nelson’s world and I love it, but at the same time, I’m part of the Grateful Dead’s world. One night I might be playing twin fiddles at the Broken Spoke and the next night I’ll be down at Antone’s playing blues. In that way Texas is a paradise, because all that music is here.”
— Doug Sahm, 1975
