    I just got done with a first listen to a cd called Live at Ovations from March 1996. #Holy #### I think Dave Peters is the King. #I have listened over and over to Art in America but this is the first time I really have heard him live. #It is just unbelieveable, to me, what this guy had within his grasp. #I can listen to his playing over and over.

    The show has Kelly Lancaster playing guitar on it. #Let me just say that I had not heard of him before but he also was in total command of the guitar playing some cool DJango inspired stuff. #

    I know there was a recent DAve Peters thread but I just think the guy deserves every bit of praise ever given.

    Old thread Resurrection!

    While doing a Google search for the tune titles for this CD, I found this old thread.

    I came across this AMAZING CD again tonight and was again blown away by all the great playing. There is something special about just a mandolin & guitar.

    So, anyway... I didn't find the tune titles....Does anyone know the titles to the tunes from this CD?

    Maybe Jordan Ramsey will see this and chime in. He has a bunch of youtube videos of him playing tunes off that CD and he probably would know.....he has studied his style quite a bit I believe.

    Mike/Dale:

    That's the tune order I have also. That is a great collection of tunes- performed well- and worth getting back into my current listening rotation. Thanks for reminding me to pull it up to my play list.

    I'd also be very interested in learning where I can get ahold of the CD.

    There are a few of us on here that either knew Dave personally or members of the band that played on that CD. I don't know who has the rights to that CD but it's a shame it's not in print. I have Art in America and it's a great listen. I have the book Masters of the Mandolin and that's a good un too. I called Elderly and asked if any more Dave Peter's CD's were going to be released and was told only if the production company felt there was enough interest. I put in my two cents about the crowd at the Cafe and the lady noted it in here computer. Maybe we should start a petition requesting a reprint. I know Miss Sunnie has the rights to his books but not sure about his CD's. She's a member here so maybe we can ask her about Live at Ovations.

    I have a copy of "Dave Peters Trio - Live at Ovations". It is as good as described. To listen to Dave play on a recording is a treat. To listen to him play live was just Heaven. He was an incredible master of the fingerboard with near flawless technique and played with such energy. He raised the level of everyone on stage. I was fortunate enough to play on stage with him a few times. Those were definitely highlights for me.

    If I'm not mistaken. the live recording was never distributed nationally. It was just sold at Dave's performances. The same with "Art In America". Dave was never totally satisfied with the recording and only produced it on cassette. It was Sunnie who made the push to have it re-mastered and distributed on CD. It would be interesting to see who even has the original tapes from the live recording.

    I made a CD from the original live cassette I owned. Now I'm going to have to get my "Live" copy out and listen to it. It's been a while.

    I don't have this recording, but have heard great things and look forward to tracking down a copy (especially after seeing the set list!). All of the Dave videos that I've done are from transcriptions of AiA, except for his published arrangement of Dark Eyes (I bet he used a lot of those licks in the live version). As far as I know, Sunnie does not own the rights to the Ovations recording, so not sure that it will ever be released through the MwtM foundation, but I look forward to more of his recorded work becoming available. Glad there is a small group of folks here that are interested in keeping his name alive and supporting the efforts.

    The Legend of Dave lives on! He continues to influence pickers all over, and likely will continue to do so. I have hunted down, and have, most all of the things he played on. Great to see here that some board members actually knew him and picked with him on stage, a very select few.

    I know for a fact that Dave was recording a CD with a local band when he passed and that CD was never released. I'll see the band leader this week and ask about it's future.

    These may be the recordings I was talking about. http://www.lonestarbluegrassband.com/recordings.htm I'm not sure. Maybe some basement tapes exist. I'll ask.

    Hi Guys,

    At the moment The Live at Ovations recording can't be produced. It's a long story, and I'm not sure how to explain it diplomatically. Not sure who to call about this and formulate the best response. Perhaps I'll give Tichenor a try. We may be able to sort something out.

    Clarification-----"sort something out" in terms of how to explain why I can't produce that CD as I was ready to do that one as it would be easy, 6 months after Art in America....

    "The Best of Times" is the recording Dave was working on with the Lonestar Bluegrass Band when he passed away. I have a copy of that CD and it is some great work by Dave. He had also been working on a album by Randy Powell called "Fiddler's Fancy". I have a pre-mixed copy of 4 of the tunes. It is fantastic, and would someday love to have a final copy of that CD.

    Peters played in a group called the Gypsies.
    I don't think their recording is available but
    its included on the CD of a Mel Bay book on
    Gypsy Violin by Mary Anne Harbar.
    There are a few very nice mandolin solos.

    I have about 4-5 VHS videos of Dave and several bands. Anybody want to convert them to DVD?

    I can copy VHS to DVD and would be I would be happy to do so. You may be able to find The Gypsies CD if you search GEMM or Addall. Randy Powell's CD was released a few years ago and it is completely amazing. Dave's playing is fantastic and the other museums are also great. Randy had a web site at one time and you could order the disk from him, but the last time I searched I could not find the site. If anyone knows how to contact him, please post the info.

    I got a copy of this CD about 8 years ago from a generous anonymous cafe member. I have a 5 disc changer- that CD has occupied one of the slots for the last 8 years. I love after Dave takes a break, Kelly is so awestruck he just yells, "Yeah, Dave!!!" Might be on the "Frevo" song. Such a good show- Dave had the three T's down pat.
    I laid the tracks, never rode the train.

    I'd love to have some DVD's of Dave P. When you guys get this done please contact me. I know Randy Powell personally and have his number. Maybe I can call and ask him what's up with his website or direct him here.
