The mercurial guitarist of the Grateful Dead was able to simultaneously play with two or three other conglomerations without it affecting his career as leader of one of rock music`s legendary bands. For four decades Garcia was a leading light on the west coast musical scene - he was credited on Jefferson Airplane`s Surrealistic Pillow as `musical and spiritual adviser` and known locally as `Captain Trips`. In addition to his session work with the Airplane, he worked with David Crosby, Paul Kantner, Jefferson Starship, New Riders Of The Purple Sage and Crosby, Stills, Nash And Young as well as various spin-offs involving David Nelson, John Kahn, David Grisman, Peter Rowan, Merl Saunders and Howard Wales (ex-A.B. Skhy). Garcia was equally at home on banjo and pedal-steel guitar, and had the ability to play two entirely different styles of music without a hint of musical overlap (rock `n` roll/blues and country/bluegrass). His flowing manner was all the more remarkable given that the third finger of his right hand was missing, owing to an accident as a child. Jerry and his older brother Tiff were both chopping wood with axes, Jerry kept putting his finger on the block and removing it just in time before Tiff chopped the wood. He was a split second too late and Tiff accidentally chopped the finger.Garcia was known and loved as a true hippie who never `sold out`. Following his heroin addiction and much publicised near-death in 1986, Garcia philosophically stated, "I`m 45 years old, I`m ready for anything, I didn`t even plan on living this long, so all this shit is add-on stuff." He continued touring and recording, with the Dead, David Grisman, and with his own versions of the Jerry Garcia Band, until shortly before his death from a heart attack during a stay at the Serenity Knolls treatment centre, near his home in Marin County, California. Years of drug abuse, heavy smoking and a bad diet (he loved hot dogs) contributed to his decline. This should not overshadow

"Dotted among the easy-going country-folk on this final album of the old pals' low-key acoustic sessions are some eyebrow-raising covers.  Mojo

Album Notes and Credits

Notes & Personnel Info
Muze PNote Personnel: Jerry Garcia (vocals, acoustic guitar); David Grisman (vocals, mandolin, mandola); Joe Craven (vocals, fiddle, percussion); Sally Van Meter (dobro); Matt Eakle (flute); John Khan, Jim Kerwin (bass); George Marsh (drums).
Muze PNote In the last few years of his life, Jerry Garcia reconnected with his old mandolin-playing pal David Grisman and casually recorded tons of old folk, blues, and country tunes at Grisman's home studio in an all-acoustic format. The bulk of these have been presented over the course of a series of discs, and BEEN ALL AROUND THIS WORLD purports to be the last installment. It's a hell of a swan song.
Muze PNote Garcia used to perform "I've Been All Around This World" in the Grateful Dead's acoustic sets, and the version included here lives up to that legacy. Freddie Hart's acerbic country waltz "Drink Up and Go Home" gets a suitably wry reading. Things go further afield with folk takes on James Brown ("I'll Go Crazy") and Jimmy Cliff ("Sitting Here in Limbo"), demonstrating the eclecticism that was part and parcel of Garcia's musical vision.
