There and Back Again [Ltd. Edition Bonus Disc]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - David Sprague
It's been a good, long time since the Grateful Dead's bassist spent a serious chunk of time in the studio, but as this 74-minute tour de force proves, he's still capable of capturing a hefty portion of the so-called X-factor his old band used to radiate. Much of the magic comes from Lesh himself -- he's still one of the most lyrical bass players around, as evidenced by his incandescent turns on "Midnight Train" and "Night of a Thousand Stars." He does allow room, however, for outside support: Erstwhile Dead lyricist Robert Hunter contributed words to 6 of the disc's 11 songs, and new bandmates such as guitarist Warren Haynes a veteran of such bands as the Allman ...

Barnes & Noble - David Sprague
It's been a good, long time since the Grateful Dead's bassist spent a serious chunk of time in the studio, but as this 74-minute tour de force proves, he's still capable of capturing a hefty portion of the so-called X-factor his old band used to radiate. Much of the magic comes from Lesh himself -- he's still one of the most lyrical bass players around, as evidenced by his incandescent turns on "Midnight Train" and "Night of a Thousand Stars." He does allow room, however, for outside support: Erstwhile Dead lyricist Robert Hunter contributed words to 6 of the disc's 11 songs, and new bandmates such as guitarist Warren Haynes a veteran of such bands as the Allman Brothers and Gov't Mule enrich Lesh's musical tapestry. Haynes's fiery leads add an agreeably rough edge to songs like "Rock 'n' Roll Blues" and "Leave Me Out of This" a tune borrowed from second-generation jam-band the Zen Tricksters, whose Rob Barraco plays keyboards here. And just to bring things full circle, Lesh even looks back long enough to revisit a past Dead glory in the form of "Liberty," a striking Garcia/Hunter composition that previously only saw the light of day on the So Many Roads box set. Lesh and Friends seem to have quickly developed an unconscious rapport, exuding the sort of vibe that will have fans following them, well, There and Back Again.

The limited-edition version includes a four-track bonus disc featuring one studio track and three live cuts, including a 25-minute "Dark Star."

All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
After releasing Love Will See You Through, a live album featuring onetime guests like Jorma Kaukonen, Phil Lesh organized a permanent touring and recording band under the moniker Phil Lesh & Friends. This quintet -- with an instrumentation that replicated the Grateful Dead's except for the inclusion of only one drummer -- featured former Allman Brothers Band guitarists Warren Haynes and Jimmy Herring, former Zen Tricksters keyboardist Rob Barraco, and former Bruce Hornsby & the Range drummer John Molo. There and Back Again is this unit's first studio album and, not surprisingly, it sounds like a cross between the Grateful Dead and the Allman Brothers Band. Lesh has made one other crucial connection, bringing in Grateful Dead lyricist Robert Hunter to write the words for six of the 11 songs. Hunter has a distinctive, wordy writing style, full of allusions, aphorisms, and wordplay that will be familiar to any Deadhead. Haynes, who does most of the singing though Lesh and Barraco get leads, too, was a careful student of Gregg Allman's throaty style, and his stinging slide guitar work recalls Duane Allman. For the most part, the bandmembers keep their natural tendency to jam in check, placing emphasis on the well-written songs. The result is a surprisingly well-organized and accessible collection that is the best album yet made by a Grateful Dead spinoff band. This limited-edition version of the album, available through mail-order or as a digital download, includes another full disc containing a studio recording of "Passenger" and live takes of "St. Stephen," "Dark Star," and "The Eleven," all Grateful Dead evergreens co-written by Lesh. The playing on these tracks strongly echoes the Grateful Dead; in fact, in places, even Deadheads might be fooled. Taken together, the recordings reflect Lesh's willingness to take up his old band's standard, perhaps in hopes of regaining their massive following.

    The Revitalization of Music

    Finally something to come around that is not record industry produced garbage. Music with a soul, with a message and virtuoso musicianship. This is an album of musicians who create music because they love it, not the bubble gum drivel that is all over the radio and TV today. For an innovative and fresh sound.....check this out.
