New Riders of the Purple Sage

Cosmic country rock from the San Francisco Bay Area

Armando Bellmas

Today on Ecléctico you're listening to New Riders of the Purple Sage, a cosmic country rock band with deep connections to the Grateful Dead—Jerry Garcia was their first pedal steel player. When the Dead got busier and Garcia left, the great Buddy Cage took over the pedal steel and shines on this song. You'll go deeper with an excerpt from an article on the Lost Live Dead blog about their archival release, Thanksgiving in New York City.
