    A tip of the hat to Heidi. Although I don't claim to know, it certainly appears her encouragement and help are a source of inspiration to The Man.

    I picked my copy up at the Compton, Flinner workshop in Tennessee, listen to it the whole way home, A great recording and a lot of Fun, it captures those moments in time you can only get while seeing Mike play live, Joe is also great, what a combination. I highly recommend this recording!

    Powerful, highly musical stuff. We need more of this kind of thing out there as an antidote to the highly processed, studio assembled, artificial sounds that dominate the airwaves these days. Real music, played by real people, on real instruments in a natural way. Can't beat it.

    Ha! I'm glad The Byron Bay Blues fest didn't get Mike this year because it means WE got him at the National Folk Festival instead. We'll make sure you get a bloody good reception Mike. Looking forward to seeing you in Canberra at Easter.

    I noticed this in the intro from Scott...I haven't seen anything about this recording. Has it not been released yet?

    "...a brand new David Grisman Quintet in concert at Liberty Hall in Lawrence, Kansas in the late 70s..."

    Not to hijack the thread! This new release from Compton and Newberry is awesome! I love Joe's clawhammer style...

    Not a recording. Just one of those special moments etched in the memories of a lot of people that I know years later that were in that same hall that night, me included.

    Thanks for the clarity. I wish that was an album! I'm getting this one though!

    Hey! I was at that concert. If you listen carefully to Sitting on top of the World, you can pretend to hear me singing along off key in the background.

    What an awesome night in a wonderful little intimate church venue. I'm glad that this was recorded for posterity & released to share with everyone. 'I know whose tears' is a lovely song with a wonderful performance, and the Sitting on top of the world has definitiely changed the way I (attempt) to play it.

    And it's already available (a bit early) on Spotify.

    If I may: if you want to support these great artists, buy a copy of the CD. If you want to oppose them, listen to it on Spotify (this comment to be followed by a semi-colon, dash and end parenthesis to convey the image of a human smiley-winky face).

    Buy directly from the artists ! Don't feed the middle man-those guys work hard & deserve all of the money.

    I agree if you can, always buy and help support the artist. It is important not only for the artist, but also so that the artist can support themselves and create more music!

    I've known Mike and his music for a long time, but didn't know Joe or his music. I listened to the sample on Mandolin Cafe and my jaw dropped. Immediately bought the music and downloaded it to my laptop for our community radio station. Played 4 cuts without prelistening to them and what a treat. Couldn't wait to get to my shop to listen to the whole album. I did listen to the whole album doing a refret on a guitar and never have I had a refret that was so much fun.. That album put me in a great mood for the rest of the day... Congratulations on a live that album that will stand the test of time... I love it..
