This is a must for any Dead Head, especially those who loved the traditional ballads.
Peace, friendship and love your family with this disk.
*Remember, this is not a concert piece. This is a pure Documentary and if you are looking for just a concert, it may not be for you.
My grandmother died 20 years ago. Recently, I was cleaning out an old trunk and I found some embroidery that she had done and that I had forgotten all about. One was a sampler with a corny but humorous saying on it. I felt as though my grandmother had sent me a gift from beyond. That is how I feel about this film -a gift to an aging Deadhead showing me the direction that Jerry would have taken had he lived and reaffirming my belief that he was one of the great ones.
Interesting too that this film would be released at the same time interest in this type of music is high with the recent Grammy wins for "O Brother Where Art Thou?". My first inclination is to pick up some of Grisman/Garcia's cd's to hear more and share this music with my co-workers who listen to music all day long.
Thanks David and thank you Jerry for doing what you did. I miss you.

When I watched this CD I immediately enjoyed the live performance being shown, then the editor/director started potting down the music with inane interviews played over it. Read morePublished on March 26 2002 by bill smith
The documentary is enjoyable enough, but the highlight of the DVD is the 5.1 surround mix of the MUSIC, which puts you right in the middle of the magic. Lucky us!Published on Feb. 25 2002 by Craig Rutenberg
