    Default Bill Monroe playing on Joe Greene's Fiddle Album?

    Re-enjoying Joe Greene's Fiddle Album County 722 on Spotify. Mando is only on three tracks, well-known Monroe pieces Paddy on the Turnpike and Grey Eagle and Salt River ("Creek" to some). The breaks sure sound like Monroe, both the tone of the F5, the picking attack, the notes. This project was from 1969, with J D Crowe doing the banjo backup and Chubby Wise on guitar. I can not find a discography and I do not have the LP. So, can anyone tell me, is that indeed Monroe playing mando on those two cuts?

    I found the album on eBay, and the back of the album says Roland White on mandolin.

    Thanks! He sure had absorbed Monroe's style! A great album all around.
