Brewer & Shipley - One Toke Over The Line. As credited on the album cover it has Garcia on pedal steel, John Kahn on bass wah (?) and Bill Vitt on drums, same guys that were part of the Keystone Jams (Garcia/Merl Saunders). Actually the whole album Brewer & Shipley - Tarkio Road is pretty good, but they were largely a one hit wonder I would say.

Apricot Brandy by Rhinoceros was special in that it was a one-hit instrumental

I love threads like this, brings back good memories.
Disclaimer for picking so many: My favorite is Dancing in the Moonlight/KH, so I consider myself free
from the OP's limitation, lol. But I tell you what, I really dig the first 2 on my list, so it was tight.

Sunshine- Jonathan Edwards

Na Na Hey Hey (Kiss Him Goodbye)- Steam

How Bizarre- OMC

The Way- Fastball

Got You Where I Want You- The Flys
