Overview

Breakdown: Live Recordings 1973 collects 18 unreleased tracks from Old & in the Way 's legendary 1973 concerts, including two Jerry Garcia banjo songs that aren't available on any other disc, and six alternate takes of songs like "Panama Red," "Pig in a Pen, "Wild Horses" and "Midnight Moonlight." In short, it's quite similar to their second record That High Lonesome Sound, a compilation of leftovers from the original Old & in the Way album that was released the year before Breakdown, but when music is as joyous as this, there's no reason to complain. Old & in the Way were one of the greatest progressive bluegrass bands of the early '70s, and each subsequent release proves that they were a special band. Even if you are intimately familiar with its two predecessors, it's unlikely you'll be disappointed with Breakdown.

This was the band that brought a lot of rock fans to bluegrass thanks to Jerry Garcia. It has been a long time since I listened to the original LP. I don't think this set is quite as good. It lacks one of my favorites, Land of the Navajo.The sound is adequate but I seem to remember the original album was better. The sonics did improve when I increased the volume. With a band with such a brief history you take what you can get. I think 3 1/2 stars would be my highest grade.
