  1. Now, this is the REAL Grateful Goods! The boys (and gal) at the top of their game. Case in point: The fantastic 26 min. “Playing In The Band” – a deep improvisational trip of the kind they simply never made again after 1974. The jam soon gets funk-jazzy (including a short but rare snippet of Godchaux going bop), then at about the 14 min. mark goes into space, with the rhythm section pulling back and Garcia wailing on some wah-wah planet of his own, before entering a melodic jam that leads to the close. Absolutely great. Thank you for this gem Mat!
