    This is a fantastic album. The band was from Vermont and pretty short lived from the late 90's. I think the cd is still available from the Homespun.com.

    This was the first song I ever heard of Claire Lynch back when we used to be able to hear bluegrass every day around here on the radio. It's hard to believe the D.C. area used to be called "The Bluegrass Capitol fo the World" because it was so popular around here. Those days are long gone.

    This is a band that made bluegrass albums. Hence the name of the band.

    I've never seen a Rounder train lable before, that's really cool. Who is playing the fiddle, I know that's his wife on bass.
     
  10. James Bryon. Blake is also credited with some fiddling. Its tasty stuff.

    I'm pretty sure this is sam bush's first professional recording. In came out in the late 60's or 1970. I've never seen the original but I found this 1976 repress today.

    What a great thread. I've been digging out records to play since it began. I have to put in word for my favorite Tony Rice album. It's not really Bluegrass. It's his version of Dawg Music which he called Spacegrass. The album is called 'Backwaters'.
    It's also an audiophile treat: the album is under 35 minutes in length which makes for short playing sides at 33 rpm. The original Rounder pressings are fantastic, as is the Japanese pressing with the alternative cover. The cd was mixed to digital with Tony involved and is a little different but also great. This is one of my 5 or 6 favorite records. You can use this as background to dinner or you can study it intently under headphones or on a long drive. You'll come away with something new every time. I have for 30 years anyway

    Yes, it is an amazing album. Perhaps his best effort as a guitar player. It is quite a professional accomplishment for him.

    If you can believe Tony, this is part of the reason he decided to leave the group. He said he wasn't into playing Sweet Georgia Brown and other Grapelli colaborative arrangements. He more or less wanted to set thing on fire with his guitar and that stuff was a little sleepy and stiff.

    I think it had to do more with drunkenness and not wanting to be told what to do. Also, pretty sure tony could make as much ore more money putting his own act together at that point.

    I just put this one one, I think it's the first DGQ post Tony release. It's good but more of that soft jazz direction David went towards.

    Ha! "Duff track!" John Starling played with John Duffey in the original Seldom Scene. Saw them many times in Mary-Land, DC, and the Virginia bluegrass festivals. Great playing and great personalities. Check out their "Live at the Cellar Door" for a good overall taste. Duffey's high and lonesome tenor was hard to beat.

    Newgrass? Nevermind what it's called, it's good music!

    I played this one last night myself. Doc is one of the best of all time. In my mind there is a difference between Appalachian folk music and bluegrass. I think Doc lives in the folk world a bit more for me. Certainly about the best flatpicker that ever lived.
