In December of 2002, three legends of bluegrass sat down to do some picking - Earl Scruggs (on banjo), Doc Watson (on guitar), and relative newcomer Ricky Skaggs (on mandolin). It was aired on the American Public TV program Great Performances, and it certainly was that! This is a great CD, a work of bluegrass art.
The music is absolutely wonderful to listen to, sure to be enjoyed by any bluegrass fan. I love listening to this album, and highly recommend it to you!

This recording showcases the talents of three top-rank bluegrass musicians. It is a live recording so you need to be tolerant of the cheers of the audience but the atmosphere is great and you really get the feel of the way these guys interact with each other and the rest of the band.
Worth it, alone, for Ricky Skaggs' track Road to Spencer which segues seemlessly from celtic to bluegrass so you can really hear the ancestry of the music.
On my first listen through I would have rated this 4 stars, but the more you hear, the more it gets under your skin!

I'm a long-time Ricky Scaggs fan anyway but this set of performances really shows-off his picking talents. Having Doc Watson and Earl Scruggs with him was a real bonus - they all have unique picking styles that are very complementary.
I have really enjoyed listening to these three legends - doesn't get any better than this.
