Show Notes
  • On December 1, 2012 at The Fillmore in San Francisco, Grateful Dead members Bob Weir and Mickey Hart, as well as members of ALO performed at the Rex Foundation’s benefit concert A Buck Dancer’s Choice, held in honor of Jon McIntire, former manager of the Grateful Dead and New Riders of the Purple Sage, and longstanding member of the Rex Board of Directors.  This compilation’s first 3 tracks showcase the evening’s opening set with ALO members Lebo, Steve Adams and Dave Brogan with Lesley Grant doing three original pieces, then joined by Bob Weir on tracks 4 and 5 for outstanding renditions of “Me And My Uncle” and an acoustic “Dark Star.”  Bob Weir’s solo acoustic 2nd set features songs “Loose Lucy” and “Playin’ In The Band” among others.  The Mickey Hart Band with Mickey Hart, Dave Schools, Crystal Monee Hall, Joe Bagale, Ben Yonas, Sikiru Adepoju, Inx Herman, and Gawain Matthews topped out the evening with their third set, including such favorites as “Samson and Delilah” and “Franklin’s Tower,” and Bob Weir joined the band for “China Cat Sunflower” and “I Know You Rider.”  With this compilation of tracks from each set, the evening’s unique musical experience is now available to those who could not attend the concert, while also extending the reach of the benefit so as to provide additional charitable support to the Rex Foundation.

    Disc One:  Opening Set features ALO members Lebo, Steve Adams and Dave Brogan with Lesley Grant, joined by Bob Weir for Tracks 4 and 5, followed by Set 2 of Bob Weir Solo Acoustic for Tracks 6-9, and on Tracks 10-11, the first two songs of the 3rd Set featuring the Mickey Hart Band, with Mickey Hart, Dave Schools, Crystal Monee Hall, Joe Bagale, Ben Yonas, Sikiru Adepoju, Inx Herman, and Gawain Matthews.
