Howdy. I'm working on a Ben Eldridge tribute show for Bluegrass Country radio and I'm in search of the tune "Cross Country" which is on Cliff Waldron's Right On! album. I'm needing it in an mp3/4 format. If you have such please let me know.

thx

Ok, got it in mp3. It's from the album Cliff Waldron and the New Shades of Grass.

That’s a great performance by Ben Eldridge of a great tune! It’s basically Tommy Jackson’s “Crazy Creek,” in a banjo arrangement similar to the ones later recorded by Bill Keith and Tony Trischka in the mid-70s. Although the following is just my speculation, I suspect that Bill Keith may have been the source of that banjo arrangement although Ben and Tony recorded versions of it before Bill did. When I asked Bill about the tune he told me he learned it from one of those 1950s Tommy Jackson square dance albums. On the other hand, it's certainly possible, maybe even likely, that Ben and Tony also worked their banjo arrangements up independently themselves. No matter where it came from it's a favorite of mine in each of these versions.
