The late Allen Shelton was known for his dynamic 5-string banjo work, playing in the bands of Jim Eanes and later Jim & Jesse, among others. This budget priced CD features 10 instrumentals, including his early Starday cut of BENDING THE STRINGS. Two tracks with Jim Eanes' band are DIN-E-O and ROUND TOWN GIRLS --fiddle favorites in the area that Shelton came from (Reidsville, N.C.). The other cuts --including an instrumental version of LITTLE LOG CABIN IN THE LANE --all seem to be accompanied by Jim & Jesse's band, with Jesse doing some of his trademark cross picking on the mandolin. On at least 3 of the tunes Shelton makes use of a 5-string resonator banjo (?) -these never had the bounce that Shelton's straight 5-string banjo tunes did.
