  • $13.50


This recording came out originally in 1970 as an LP on the short-lived Together label od southern California and quickly became a much sought after collectors item. Dillard is in excellent form here as he attacks mostly hard-core standard banjo pieces like HOME SWEET HOME, FOGGY MOUNTAIN BREAKDOWN,TRAIN 45, Bobby Thompson's BANJOLINA and Ralph Stanley's HARD TIMES and CLINCH MT. BACKSTEP. An additional cut that did not appear on the LP,RUNAWAY COUNTRY, appears here. Though there is some superfluous and sometimes annoying percussion on the recording, for the most part the spirited palying of Dillard and his sideman rise well above this to create a dynamic and very enjoyable disc.
