The key to the whole thing was the guy playing the Strat, stage left, wearing a brown vest over a short-sleeved, yellow/white striped polo shirt! THAT – is Amos Garrett.
When Tyson asked me to come to an I&S concert in Feb. 69, he wanted me to hear this new thing he had going – new way of writing, new music. Turned out to be one of the seminal folk/rock cum country/rock bands of that period. Great Speckled Bird, he called it.
He already had a steel player, Bill Keith (yeah, Bill of the Banjo!) but they hated each other. He had heard me playing with Ronnie Hawkins, wanted me and told The Hawk (and I quote) “When you’re done with him. I want him!”
Tyson’s a cowboy – a real one. He doesn’t fuck around.
I went to the concert, took my hippie girlfriend (the very epitome of what a hippie chick should look like!), I was loaded for bear. But what I wasn’t prepared for was this guitar player. Holy fuck!!!!! Up to today, I’ve never heard anything like this guy. Now, moving up the ladder to I&S was something but man…I would have done this gig just to carry this guy’s suitcase.

In 1992 they were inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame during the Juno Awards ceremony.
and in 1994 they were both made Members of the Order of Canada. In 2005 an extensive Canadian Broadcasting Corporation poll determined their song “Four Strong Winds” to be the “most essential” piece of Canadian music.
In 2006 they were both inducted into the Mariposa Hall of Fame. It was in 1961 that Ian and Sylvia headlined at Canada’s legendary Mariposa Festival. This recent induction featured a rare live performance by the duo (accompanied by David Celia on guitar) in Toronto to an enthusiastic audience including Gordon Lightfoot.
Here they simply rock out out with an amazing jam.
Derived from an appearance by David Nelson on my KPFA show, Dead to the World, on August 18, 1999.
Best known for his work with the New Riders of the Purple Sage, David Nelson is one of Robert Hunter and Jerry Garcia’s oldest musical buds. They played folk music and bluegrass together in the early ’60s, and in this interview Nelson also reveals that he was a founding member of the jug band that became the Grateful Dead, Mother McCree’s Uptown Jug Champions.
In the interview Nelson talks about the founding of the David Nelson Band. “I met [guitarist/pedal steel Barry Sless, keyboardist Mookie Siegel, and bassist Bill Laymon] in another group that we were in in the early ’90s, a tribute to the Grateful Dead called the Dead Ringers….Read on at Dead.net
