Dueling Banjos Album
As a general rule, I don't care for banjo music and bluegrass is definitely a required taste, as are so many good things (Laphroaig, English-Blend Pipe Tobacco, bagpipes, etc.). If you are among those who've acquired the taste (even if you aren't) this is one to have – it's what I'd call sophisticated bluegrass, mostly on and always with, the banjo; the instrument is certainly as well played as it could possibly be. I'd never heard of Weissberg (even though I've seen the movie Deliverance - who remembers credits?), but this album demonstrates that he's a master. Don't let the slow beginning fool you - the rest goes, surely, as fast as a banjo can be picked. The tone of the instrument, also, is better than any I've ever heard, recorded or otherwise (my brother owns a Gibson). As an aside: if you haven't seen Deliverance, it's a very interesting piece of work - abstruse as well as a mite scary.
man it does my southern TN ears good to here some good ol dueling banjoes AAAAAA++++++
Piece of Heritage and out country
There are some things in music you have to have to make your pallete complete to have a balance of all natural things and this is one of those American Staples. I dont think there is any better plucking and Picking on a banjo than on this album. The first reviewer above is right its true "Bluegrass" is an aquired taste but its a good one. I can say this coming from a me a 1/2 "Mexican" I prefer being a "Mexican than a "Mexicant". I like to be open to listen to good music wherever its from. This is what America is about open and a melting pot. Somehow sometimes this kind of music is looked at as old ways or times of the dark begings in this country but I see it as a piece of american history. Enjoy it!
