Editor's note: day one of my two three day banjo and bluegrass blowout. This is one of those records that really fits into a genre and you really have to enjoy that genre to like it. The singing makes me think of Granny from the Beverly Hillbillies or an old dog howling at the moon because he has gone quite mad within himself. Clearly not my thing here.
