Simply one of the greatest bluegrass recordings of all time. Recorded by a young David Grisman and featuring a young Bill Keith on Banjo just formulating the melodic style he would later popularize. Red Allen's vocals are high and lonesome and Wakefield's playing is simply fantastic. Intimate and fantastic. Highly recommended!
