  New Riders of the Purple Sage - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
New Riders of the Purple Sage was a 1970s country rock band from Marin County, California.
The roots of the New Riders can be traced back to the early 60s folk/bohemian/beatnik scene in San Francisco, where future Grateful Dead guitarist Jerry Garcia, then considered to be one of the finest banjo players of the folk revival, often played gigs with like-minded guitarist David Nelson.
Dawson's foresight was precipitous, as 1969 marked the emergence of country rock via the Dillard and Clark Band, the Clarence White-era Byrds, The Band, Gram Parsons' Flying Burrito Brothers, and Bob Dylan.

 Riders Of The Purple Sage -- Chapter 1   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
A rider had just left her and it was his message that held her thoughtful and almost sad, awaiting the churchmen who were coming to resent and attack her right to befriend a Gentile.
She loved it all--the grove of cottonwoods, the old stone house, the amber-tinted water, and the droves of shaggy, dusty horses and mustangs, the sleek, clean-limbed, blooded racers, and the browsing herds of cattle and the lean, sun-browned riders of the sage.
The rider stepped away from her, moving out with the same slow, measured stride in which he had approached, and the fact that his action placed her wholly to one side, and him no nearer to Tull and his men, had a penetrating significance.

The sage about him was breast-high to his horse, oversweet with its warm, fragrant breath, gray where it waved to the light, darker where the wind left it still, and beyond the wonderful haze-purple lent by distance.
As a rider guarding the herd he had never thought of the night's wildness and loneliness; as an outcast, now when the full silence set in, and the deep darkness, and trains of radiant stars shone cold and calm, he lay with an ache in his heart.
He yearned to leave the endless sage slopes, the wilderness of canyons, and it was in the lonely night that this yearning grew unbearable.

 Riders Of the Purple Sage - CHAPTER XVII
The crippled rider went one way; the one frustrated in his attempt to get the carbine rode another, Venters thought he made out a third rider, carrying a strange-appearing bundle and disappearing in the sage.
That little crime-stained rider was actually thinking of his horses, husbanding their speed, handling them with knowledge of years, glorying in their beautiful, swift, racing stride, and wanting them to win the race when his own life hung suspended in quivering balance.
Venters imagined the rider would keep well out of range of the rifle, but, as he would be lost on the sage without a horse, not improbably he would linger in the vicinity on the chance of getting back one of the fls.

Here the listener will thrill to the echos of gunfire on the western plan, loyal riders for the brand, a stranger who rides to the sound of the guns, beliefs and passions intertwined with betrayal and violence.
The descriptiveness of the narrative is, however, somewhat repetitive and overdone as though apparently reflecting the turbulent emotions of the characters themselves, as though their innermost feelings are laid bare upon the landscape of their tale.

When the New Riders Of The Purple Sage took the stage at Veneta, Oregon on the afternoon of August 27, 1972, they had just released their second album, Powerglide.
The group formed in 1969 as a way for Jerry Garcia (on pedal steel), Phil Lesh and Micky Hart to explore country-rock beyond the constraints of the Grateful Dead, and benefited from this association even as band members came and went.
Joining the Dead for the bill, The New Riders Of The Purple Sage played their country/acid-rock without diving into the extended jams that defined their parent group.
