We know there are going to be many Bluegrass fans who will be thrilled to see this unexpected release! It is a precious and welcome addition to the relatively small body of recorded work by this legendary west coast band that was made up of Clarence, Roland and Eric White along with banjo picker Herb Pedersen. Exactly where the master for this record lay hidden for almost 40 years is not explained in the otherwise excellent notes, but in fact it was taped as a live show in Holland in the Spring of 1973, and issued now for the first time by Roland White (who helped form the group after his stints as guitarist with Bill Monroe and mandolin picker for Lester Flatt's Nashville Grass). The playing is fresh and energetic before a very appreciative crowd, and it's great now to have a "new" group of songs and tunes from this group --especially a bunch that feature the amazing guitar work of Clarence White (who was killed later that year by a drunken driver after a show in Palmdale, California). In addition to the group's renditions of songs like IS THIS MY DESTINY, DARK HOLLOW, TAKE A WHIFF ON ME, LAST THING ON MY MIND, WHERE YOU BEEN GONE SO LONG, I KNOW WHAT IT MEANS TO BE LONESOME, and FIELDS HAVE TURNED BROWN, there are several instrumentals that showcase Clarence's guitar picking: FIRE ON THE MOUNTAIN, DIXIE BREAKDOWN, MOCKING BANJO and a BLACK MOUNTAIN RAG & SOLDIER'S JOY. Medley. Great to have this material available!
