I always liked this tune. I researched to find as many verses as I could, and chose the ones I liked best. The banjo is a Gibson RB-4.

By Gillian Welch, although this version certainly doesn't sound like hers!

An old one written by Bill Monroe. The banjo is a Deering Golden Wreath with an '06; ring.

I'll put up this in honor of Levon Helm of The Band, one of the greats of American music, who died today. It's one of the first songs I tried recording, I've learned some since then. Godspeed, Levon -- wish I could sing it like you did!

There are actually two songs I know entitled "Diamond Joe". Inspired by the Red Clay Ramblers' version on their "Yonder" album some years back, though I changed the verses around a bit.

I first heard this by Flatt & Scruggs in the early 60's, but I think they got it by reworking an older song named "I'm Thinking Tonight Of The Old Folks", recorded by the Monroe Brothers.

A Carter Family song I liked. Not sure about the composers, that's what I found while searching for authorship. It may not be correct... The banjo is a Gibson RB-75.

A mix of gospel, science fiction and cold-war fears, all combined into one. I couldn't resist adding some sound effects found on the web for good measure! The banjo is a Deering Golden Wreath with the "06" ring.

Everyone plays this uptempo, but to me it might just as well be sung from the viewpoint of someone older, looking back....

As the song goes, my house is old and needs a new roof! Banjo is a Gibson RB-75 "Crowe".

I first learned this from Ron Thomason and the Dry Branch Fire Squad in the early 80's. No banjo (blasphemy!), but thought I'd post it anyway....

While visiting the mandolincafe.com, I found a thread that included a scan of a handwritten song. There was no title nor was there a composer shown, just the words. I had no recollection of hearing this before, no idea how the melody was supposed to go, so I made up a simple one for it. For lack of a name, I just call it "Need Me No Longer". If anyone knows the composer, please let me know.

I first heard this Richard Farina song on Judy Collins' "Fifth Album" many years ago. Eric Weissberg played second guitar on the track!
