    You guys don't know a Loar when you see one? That's Gene Johnson of Diamond Rio with '24 Loar. Slone on fiddle for sure. That was a really fine line up.

    Looks like those last pictures were taken at Slagles Pasture.
    That sure was a great place in East Tenn. to hear music and have a good time. I am not sure if they are still putting on shows there...Gary S

    Gary S they were taken at Slagles Pasture.

    I'm not sure if they still have festivals there. Sure had some wonderful times at that place!

    Also performed a duet with
    Monroe, as you can see from the very first picture
    on his website. Could be that's my head in the first row,
    partly hidden by the tape recorders.

    I remember Muleskinner News was in the last stages
    of preparation that summer. Somewhere in the background
    there was a hillbilly living in New Jersey, Clifton
    Bailey, a friend (or so he claimed) of Ralph Stanley's and Don Reno's (re Bluegrass Unlimited: "it stinks",
    but he never explained how).

    Wonder if you, f5journl, or your dad, met him?

    I spent a week in NYC towards the end of my trip, and
    had a standing invitiation to see him through Peter
    Winblad. He lived on a farm in some small village
    in New Jersey. He took me around the village , to the bank,
    the post office, etc. and introduced me as
    "the boy (I was 24) from Sweden who plays the
    Orange Blossom Special on the mandolin" (Winblad
    had sent him a tape).

    Forgive me for this egocentric reminiscing, but these pictures evoke memories of the period when I was most
    actively involved in BG music - to the point
    of oversaturation, I fear.

    Thanks, Scott, for reminding us of this thread. #This thread, hands-down, has been my favorite of any in the last several years. #

    Thanks Darryl for getting it started and sharing so much personal and collective bluegrass history!

    Also, Darryl, I finally got a copy of Bluegrass-Country Soul this week (which has been rereleased on DVD) of Camp Springs in '71. #While watching it with the Fred Bartenstein commentary on, he points out a mandolin picker in a jam that he believes is you. #Is it you?

    This is a tremendous thread. Thanks Scott for bringing it back up.

    Makes me want to dig into my 70s slides.
    Those early pics are some of the most lonesome I've seen.

    Question - In the picture of Sam Bush and Darryl, what mando is Sam holding? Certainly it can't be Hoss in 1969, but it does have block inlays. Can't see the headstock due to the glare...

    Maybe another 1930's F5?

    I just noticed Roger Sprung mentioned.. I used to tour with "old sausage fingers" in the early 60s. May have seen some of you at Galax, Union Grove, Hiawassee or Berryville.

    What I learned from Sprung is that you grow from playing with people, not for people.

    We alsways used to pick up an odd musician here or there. One festival in Virginia, we picked up this old fiddler just coming out of retirement. It was his first performance in years. We took first place with the help of Clark Kessinger.

    Cya!

    Hey Bob,

    I must have seen you play with Roger Sprung at Berryville in the early '70s sometime. Great festivals. I remember that Roger was the only guy there wearing a starched white shirt for all three days of the festival. Pretty wild music--for those times, anyway. Roger had a most unusual approach.

    Did you overlap with Jody Stecher's tenure in that ensemble?
    Just one guy's opinion

    The mandolin Sam was holding in the picture with Darryl was a 39 or 40 vintage F5 that was owned by Wayne Stewart, (also featured in one of the photos) who Sam played with in Poor Richard's Almanac.

    I loved the pix. #Thanks for sharing.
    Due to financial contraints, the closest I got to a bluegrass festival in the 1960s-70's was listening to Ray Davis broadcasting from Johnny's New and Used Cars, 4801 *HAR*ford Road in Baltimore over WBMD.
    Is the mandolin Norman Blake holding a Duffy creation?
    I've seen one other like it. #I called that shape the "hurricane." #It reminded me of the hurricane symbol on weather maps.
    Again, thanks a whole bunch.
    Greg

    That was the Duffey "duck", or one of them. If I recall correctly, it was stated here at the Cafe that he made two of them, with the mandolin player from Japan's Train 45, who later played with Cliff Waldron, having the second one.

    RE:Duffey "duck".
    You'd think Duffey would have made a better looking tuning head. #Nothing to dress it up.
    I looks like blood-red paint on pine to me.
    Still, great pics.
    Gawd, the 70's had awful looking clothes.
    My two cents.
