Original Motion Picture Soundtrack
The Pizza Tapes
Jerry Garcia, David Grisman
and Tony Rice
This extraordinary CD traces the Garcia/Grisman musical timeline with live tracks from their legendary band Old and In the Way of the 1970's to the historic Garcia/ Grisman Band shows in the 1990's.

Grateful Dawg also digs into the deep well of traditional music that inspired these two stylists, with tracks from the father of bluegrass, Bill Monroe, and Scottish balladeer Ewan MacColl. This CD accompanies Sony Pictures Classics release of the documentary film Grateful Dawg.

Now at last, from the vaults of Dawg Studios comes the sonically superb official release of this historic jam session, the only meeting of guitar greats Jerry Garcia and Tony Rice, introduced to each other by their mutual friend and musical associate, mandolinist/producer David Grisman.
