      Wow! I've heard this show from a recording from an audience member. It is a fantastic show! but the bootleg recording leaves a lot to be desired. The quality of this 2 disc set is so much better. I am definitely going to have to pick this up!
      Looking forward to it!

      I have watched this on YouTube and was totally blown away. Just ordered the CD because this truly a must have recording in my book. I miss Tony's playing and presence on the scene. These guys make it look effortless; the duo's sense of time is just superb.

      Thanks Dawg!

      two words: Dawg's Rag wow

      smokin' as is the rest of the show....listening to the Dawg reminds me why I wanted to learn mandolin in the first place. I could listen to Tony strum a G chord all day long.
