Where Purchased: From the Band
This is a great disc for listening too as well as playing along with. There is a wide mix of types of music, some blue grassey, some old time some with vocals some without etc. I really enjoy the way the banjo actually stands out a bit, it's not overwhelmed by the fiddle but definately an equal partner to it. I also enjoy the singing quite a bit and it's great to sing along with. The tunings for the banjo are included in the disk jacket which is a nice touch. As a disclaimer, I am biased, I take banjo lessons from Dave, but I'd like the disk even if I didn't.
