    I have always loved Perlman - and this is great. Thanks for sharing!

    p.s. - For those who might be interested; The video that popped-up on YouTube right after this one, was of Perlman playing the Star-Spangled Banner at a Mets game . . . definitely worth watching.
    I recently finished a new homemade 4-song EP of original solo acoustic songs; (sorry, no mandolin content this time). If you are interested in a FREE copy, feel free to send me your address via Private Message, and I will be glad to send you one. Trust me, it will be worth the price!

    I too thought he was "too commercial" back in the day but I did know he could play a mean guitar -- but no idea he did mandolin.

    Does anyone know what kind of a mandolin he had there -- those guys all look so young!
