Norman Blake/Tut Taylor/Sam Bush/Butch Robins/Vassar Clements/David Holland/Jethro Burns is a fun find in the record collection.

(Yes, I have records that I don’t even know I have or haven’t listened to.  And that’s not because it’s a big collection.  I bet I don’t have a linear yard of albums. (Yes one way to measure a record collection is by the number of albums. Another, which doesn’t require walking into the other room and spending 20 minutes counting records, is to estimate their width on a shelf.  Look it up.))

A 1975 release on the Flying Fish label, Norman Blake/Tut Taylor/Sam Bush/Butch Robins/Vassar Clements/David Holland/Jethro Burns is a recording of a bunch of bluegrass musicians getting together in the studio to play some bluegrass and to just jam. There’s not much better than improvisational bluegrass. This is a strange album with no liner notes or cover notes or any notes at all to let us know what’s going on here. At least my copy doesn’t have them. In searching the cyber webs, I haven’t come up with much more information than what I’ve already shared with you. Even a YouTube search doesn’t reveal any tracks from from this album. However, there are a couple by some of the same musicians that will give you a pretty good idea of the swinging bluegrass to be found here. Enjoy.
