Hi All:

Since playing banjo, I've mainly been hooked on Scruggs and Crowe but I now feel the urge to explore other players as well. I hear Vestal's name all the time but I haven't heard many of his recordings. Any recommended, must-have, Scott Vestal albums/songs? Quicksilver or solo...doesn't matter to me...

This my all time favorite bluegrass Scott Vestal stuff from Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver's CD:

Once and For Always/The New is Out

 

I think Once and For Always is Terry Baucom, but The News is Out is Scott Vestal

I've seen Southern Connection on YouTube - are there any studio recorded CDs out there of them?

X2 on jonfinder's suggestions on the bluegrass series.

IIRC he put out a tab book and his own recordings after he left DLQS, the main tune I remember was his version of Ground Speed which thanks to the internet can be seen here, his second break starts at :49 and well worth checking out.

That is one strange banjo neck.

There is the banjo. It's his own design, the Vestal Stealth. Long peg head probably needs a special case.

No inlay! Takes a special player.
