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.

A Classic

Among banjo players this album is a classic. In 1963 Electra released this album by Eric Weissberg and Marshall Brickman (the Oscar winning screen writer and director). It was the first LP that included melodic banjo style. When the film Deliverance was released, and Weissberg played the now iconic Dueling Banjos for the soundtrack, the album was repackaged under a new name with the inclusion of Dueling Banjos. In the process one cut, No Title Yet Blues, was dropped. Of interest is the fact that Clarence White was the guitar player on the album (with the exclusion of the Dueling Banjo cut).

Master of ten instruments — bass (acoustic and electric), guitar, fiddle, banjo, kazoo, mandolin, pedal steel, Dobro, and jew's harp — Weissberg has accompanied a who's who of folk-pop artists, including Judy Collins, Jim Croce, John Denver, Bob Dylan, Art Garfunkel, Richie Havens, Ian & Sylvia,...
