    Listened to Reischman's "Up in the Woods" again yesterday. Such a great album.

    Someone told about Grappelli and Grisman's live album which is high in my rating but the one that I would put on the top is the first Grisman Quintet's album.

    Fun to swing back around to this topic and to see some new (to me) suggestions:

    ralph j mentioned this one: Dave Gross: Mandology (w Olli Soikkeli, g, and Rob Hecht, violin on 5-6 cuts)

    Good one - Dave hosted a Saturday A.M. bg radio show on WFDU, titled Music America, in the early 80's. I have literally dozens of cassette tapes from that show, he would open it with the tune Farmyard Swing, off a Kenny Baker record, with the quirky and great mando solo by Bobby Osborne.

    Some newer listens:

    Dave Peters - Dawgfinger
    Wyatt Rice - New Market Gap. Terrific mandolin solos on all tunes, by Ray Legere.
    Alan Bibey and Wayne Benson - Mandolin Chronicles.
    Lost & Found - Just Pickin', with the late, great Dempsey Young.

    I agree but it was originally titled Original Underground Music from the Mysterious South. When it was released as a CD they added a couple Nancy Blake sons and re titled it. It is beautiful I saw that group twice at the Birchmere when they was touring for this album. An entire evening of Norman Blake on Mandolin.

    Great stuff on here. Thanks for the recommendations. I love Alan Bibey and Wayne Benson - Mandolin Chronicles. I'm a sucker for dueling mandos.
