    Nope..that would be his Hoss of a Hutto. Never heard a Gibby sound like that. Not throwing flames here at Gibby. Those who know...well..know.

    Regrettably, Dempsey's passing occurred just prior to the YouTube explosion, so there ain't much. Scotti linked to one of the very few vids out there.

    And thats not a very good one. Ive played that mando yrs ago and to this day it stands out as one of those deserted island mandos. What I remember most besides the sound was it was a dream to play. If memory serves me..Dempsey told me that Gary Henderson had just done doing some set up work to it. When I handed him my Gil #8084 he said " Oh you have one of those high dollar manlins" We both laughed. I would have traded that Gil for that Hutto on the spot. Thats saying alot because that Gil also one of them deserted island mandos...just the other side of the island.

    What did the Huttos end up selling for new. Iam pretty sure Dempsey told me 750 dollars. I guess you can see from the trim the price probably varied. some ferns som flower pots and Darrells was plain ecept a small The Hutto.

    Hadn't seen that one in a while, thanks for digging it up. Even there, you can hear the woof and bark. That was with Ronald Smith on banjo (new to the band) - or was it still Lynwood? - and Steve Wilson on guitar. Man.

    There is an empty site (http://www.huttomandolin.zoomshare.com/) for information about Hutto mandolins. Does anyone know whats up with it? So far no pictures or other information. It would be cool to have a repository for Hutto info.

    Looking through my records, it seems that Mr. Hutto had a fondness for Engelmann spruce up until the mid-90's or so...
    Anyone know whether any Red spruce appeared in his mandolins later on??
    Just curious...

    I had the pleasure of running sound for L&F with Dempsey playing his Hutto, Dearstone and Gibson, also with Scott in the band and earlier this year for Darrel Webb. I have heard and mic'd a few Huttos over the years and all have been pretty consistant and have had that deep woody sound. And Demspsey could get that tone is spades. Pete Hart get's that tone from his Buckeyes and that is what convince me to buy one of his.

    I have a DVD copy of a public access show they used to do. Its about an hour of the lost and found at their best. The hutto stuck right in front of an sm 57 and it sounds incredible as does Dempsey's playing. Does anyone know if that waa a video the sold at shows or am I just lucky enough to have a copy someone recorded off the TV

    I think I have the same video, albeit on VHS tape. Looks like it was recorded at a TV studio, Bubba Chandler was in the band and they do a song about a ship, Dempsey plays twin guitar with Gene Parker and they end with Dempsey's Ride. Is that the same one?

    That would be the one. The comnination of parker on banjo and dempsey on mandolin is hard to beat. They should really concider releasing that again, there wont be another Dempsey young. He was all smiles in that video.

    In this video posted its Scottie Sparks - guitar, Dempsey Young - mandolin, Ronald Smith - banjo, Alan Mills - bass. Absolutely positive on that.

    Here's the man on one of the band's signature numbers. Camera work is shoddy, but you get the idea...

    Dempsey on stage always reminded me of Jethro, another smiling wonder. Hard to fathom the inner turmoil he lived within.

    Going through my L&F archive the past few days (I have virtually everything they ever did, including the first 3 records on the Outlet label, Gene Parker's solo record from 1980, live shows, etc.), I have a renewed admiration for Dempsey. His playing was unexpected, unique and very great. Nobody did it quite like he did. He had a way with chord voicings. He of course did the Monroe chop shape, but he also had this thing where he would slide into a shape, creating a very hip groove. He shows a little of that in his instruction tape (not too much...lol).
