Nice musical taste. I aprove very much. Here are the embedded videos. I like the early Ricky Skaggs jazzy mandolin style as well as the rootsier "new" style like in the Motherīs Only Sleeping video (just a short solo though).

Yes..I prefer Skaggs' more jazzier style as well.

Only one guy of that band that seemed to fad into a memory, Wes Golding. He tried his own band for many years after leaving the BC and then just gave it up. Does anyone know if Wes still picks for fun? His wife Trudy was playing bass with him. I thought his voice blended well with Skaggs.

I like Wes Goldingīs voice as a lead singer a lot. The only other album with him that I know of is one with Herchel Sizemore.

Yes, what is he up to?

During the Boone Creek days, Wes and Ricky had an *uncanny* way of singing together, matching phraseology and vocal utterances to a T. Yeah, the only other recording I have of him is on Country Grass, Livin Free, with Herschel - has that cool album cover of the sloe-eyed horse amidst a leafy green substance. That is one great record.

In Alan Bibey's first Acutab book, there's a photo of Wes and Alan in a band called Sure Fire.

SureFire cut one LP and one cassette only recording. Eric Ellis played banjo on both and I think Alan was on both as well.
