Verry Short songs. 26 May 2013
By Ralph Dill - Published on Amazon.com
It is probably my fault for not looking at the song lengths.
But the songs are just so short, they seem to end before the really get to going.
Big Mon Liver Than You'll Ever Be 21 Jan 2013
By Sid Griffin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is late period Bill Monroe and the Bluegrass Boys live at what sounds like an auditorium in the States someplace. However the liner notes and packaging keep this a secret and deliver only a well-worn retelling of the Monroe biography. The recording has a slight distance to it and this suggests a live radio broadcast either licensed by the Monroe estate (that is, his son James) for release on CD or a broadcast performance which falls between the copyright cracks as regards North American and European copyright law. But whatever, it is a good Monroe performance.

There is a part of me which wants to believe this is the early 1960s lineup with Del McCoury singing and Bill Keith on banjo such is the inventiveness of the pickin' but as Bluegrass Breakdown has shifted from a primarily mandolin driven instrumental to a banjo instrumental this means late 1960s at the earliest. Still Big Mon is pickin' well and sounding good, no signs of ageing in his performance, and the band is right up there with him. The entire shebang only lasts 23 minutes, however, so the consumer should not pay too much for this and someone please tell whoever owns The EGGE Company (yes, EGGE is how they spell it) that the final song is Uncle Pen and not Uncle Penn. And next time please give us more than one Monroe photograph in the packaging!

Nonetheless this is a good, if not great, bluegrass performance and Bill Monroe enthusiasts will want a copy.
