You got it, those two were great. I have an old record done by that band Bluegrass Blend, on Leather records, has a shine jug on the cover. Simply a great LP, vocally, instrumentally - both them boys could burn it, particularly Rick, he had a style that floated my boat! I understand he has a pickin party every spring around here somewhere, need to hunt that one down.
