Maybe Rounder sought to match the success of The Bluegrass Album.  But this one turned out to be a one-off. No Monroe material and great singing. Obviously the instrumental chops were there, but that doesn’t seem to be the emphasis.

That's solid. Good reference to The Bluegrass Album Band. It's good to see and hear Vince Gill.

Hey Bill, I got this album when it came out in 1983 and it quickly became (and remains) one of my favorites. The way I play "Billy in the Low Ground" was heavily influenced by Herb Pedersen's Scruggsy arrangement (in other words, I stole it).

In 1983, Vince Gill was still best known for his time with Pure Prairie League a couple of years earlier and had a few years to go before morphing into *****VINCE GILL****. He sure does a great job on this album.

I became a Vince Gill fan when I listened to the CD "Here Today". This combination of musicians only got together for this one CD. A lineup of fine musicians and singers.
