James and the Good Brothers

Recommended Posts

Pretty cool stuff about this album...

The first and only LP from this Canadian group. Bill Kreutzmann plays on the album. Bill Kreutzmann, Bob Weir, Phil Lesh and the Grateful Dead and Family are thanked on the cover. May also include an uncredited contribution from Garcia.

Cool, thanks for posting that. Looks like Billy is credited for only playing on one of the tracks I guess?

Also, would be interesting to unravel the mystery of whether or not Garcia plays on any of the tracks. "It is suggested that Garcia plays pedal steel on No You Can't Help Yourself and maybe on other tracks including Oh How She Rides."

This led me down a bit of a wormhole reading about shows that The Good Brothers playing in CA around that time. Like the 4 night run at the Fillmore West with New Riders of The Purple Sage heading (with Jerry on pedal steel),  supported by Boz Scaggs and James and The Good Brothers. 25,26,27,28 February 1971. This blog mentions that Jerry sat in on banjo with The Good Brothers.


And here is some more on shows The Good Brothers did in CA:
