As far as I know, it was Don Reno who introduced LRG to the 5-string banjo and it has been a staple of the swing repertoire ever since.

Wow, is this sweet!  I'm not going to bother trying to learn it.   Great touch, tone, timing, the whole deal.

Perfectly wonderful! Also, an old friend of mine used to play this, brings back memories. I'll have to learn a harmony and duet it with Joe. Nice backup too, by the way.

I am enjoying listening to your tunes very much. Such clarity and tasty playing. Thanks for posting your tunes. Have you ever played the clarinet?

I love this tune, always have. It's a tough tune to play, I always liked playing around with it, but never recorded it or found anyone who would play it with me. I always think of Carl Jackson's version, but yet you took off into your own solo and admonishments, great job!
