This is a particularly exciting set. Dick Hyman and Dick Wellstood meet up on a variety of heated selections and try to outstride each other. Wellstood (just a year before his death) has "Caravan" as his feature while Hyman takes "I've Got a Crush on You" solo, but it is the eight collaborations (particularly "Keep Off the Grass," "Birmingham Breakdown" and "What's the Use of Being Alone") that are most memorable. This album was put out by the Canadian Unisson label and is quite exciting. [A U.K. version of Stridemonster! was also released.]
