Mr. Dickey, a native of Indiana, was likely in his 70s when these recordings were made. They show a solid old-time fiddler with an interesting repertoire that includes standards along with tunes that may have been unique to Dickey. There are 23 tracks here, some of them include introductions as to the sources of the tunes, and all include the tunings for the fiddle. Sound quality is good on these recordings which appeared on old Marimac label cassettes in the 1990s. Dickey is accompanied by guitar and some old time banjo. A good fiddle record with lots of nice tunes.
