Get Together / Let's Get Together
Composer: Chet Powers

Get Together was performed by Jerry Garcia with with Pete Sears, Nick Gravenites and Animal Mind at the Brian Wilson Defense Committee benefit in San Francisco on April 29, 1990. Also performed by Phil Lesh & Friends, PhilHarmonia, and the Crusader Rabbit Stealth Band.

Get Together was written by Chet Powers (aka Dino Valenti, aka Jesse Oris Farrow). The first released recording was probably that of the Kingston Trio. Early recordings of the song, for example those of the Kingston Trio, We Five and Jefferson Airplane, use the title Let's Get Together.

The Youngbloods first released the song, using the Get Together title, in 1967. This was re-released in 1969 and reached #5 in the Billboard charts that year. Subsequently the majority of recordings use the Get Together title.
