How many of us actually realize that on this day in 1949 the first recording of Foggy Mountain Breakdown was put to vinyl at Herzog Studios in Cincinnati? I say happy birthday to the song that first caused me to really want to pick a banjo in 1976. I’d love to hear how you reacted at your first hearing of this classic.

Maybe it wasn’t actually put to vinyl that day, but it was recorded. I tried to represent the original recording a while back for fun...however, it is just me, and a computer...not exactly the vibe of a young Earl and band.

My apologies Chuck! I just hadn’t seen a post about this monumental banjo anniversary. Most admittedly my fault for not digging a little deeper. I can most certainly remove the post if I have overstepped. Just let me know! And I hope that didn’t sound sarcastic, it certainly wasn’t meant that way!

Not at all, Greg. That old thread got lost into the next page. No problem - love to hear you on that clip! And so will others. (btw, FB had about 6 posts going about the 70 year thing)

Here’s one by the guy who wrote the book about FMB - Thomas Goldsmith. Because it was a rainy, humid day, Earl had to place a light bulb behind his calfskin head to dry it out and tighten it. I think it did the trick....!
