Music Update for October 2023

Here are some of the Albums I’m currently checking out. Most of the New Releases have been added to my “New Releases to Check Out” playlist through the Music Harbor application as noted in my On Listening post.

Blues From the Rainforest by Merl Saunders – found this CD when going through an old stack, so ripped it. Forgot how cool Jerry’s tone was on the first track. Rest is a little woo woo.

Clinch Mountain Country [Disc 1] by Ralph Stanley & Friends

Clinch Mountain Country [Disc 2] by Ralph Stanley

Garcia Grisman (Alternate Version) by Jerry Garcia & David Grisman* – New Release – The version of Russian Lullaby on this (one of JG’s favorite tunes to play) features much more interesting playing by both than on the original release.
