Massive thanks to our friends for helping us bring this source into general circulation: Will Boswell, Joe Jupille, Taper Pat, and Matt Smith. Special thanks to Taper Pat for helping to pin down the lineage, and Matt for his great technical work and sending me a copy to share with the community.

There seems to be some confusion about what this band is called. The database and LL use both names (Great American String Band / Great American Music Band). However, they’re clearly introduced as the Great American Music Band:

David Grisman – Mandolin
Richard Greene – Fiddle
David Nictern – Guitar, Vocals
Taj Mahal – Bass, Vocals
Jerry Garcia – Banjo
Maria Mauldar – Vocals (1)

While the multi generational tape in circulation sounds very nice imo (shn id 20699), this source is a noticable upgrade: it has a better lineage and improved clarity.
