Acoustic Disc Discography

Acoustic Disc was started in 1990 by David Grisman as an outlet for his and other acoustic music. By 2002 the label had release 50 CDs including David Grisman Quintet and other project releases, a series of archive albums and 3 CDs in the Tone Poems series. In 2008 Acoustic Disc launched the Acoustic Oasis series. These releases are primarily available as downloads. Some releases are also available on CD.

All the Garcia/Grisman CDs were released on the label. David Grisman has acknowledged in interviews that the success of the first Garcia / Grisman CD in 1991 helped finance the release of further albums that were less likely to be financially successful. There have also been two archive live recording of Old & In The Way on the label.

All Acoustic Disc releases are graced with excellent sound quality and informative, and often lengthy booklets. Through the 2000s Acoustic Disc moved to high quality digital releases and from 2020 no longer released CDs.

All Acoustic Disc releases are available from the Acoustic Disc website or the Acoustic Oasis website.
