Paul--Four star performance. Great bouncy relaxed rendition.  It sounded happy and it made me happy.

That's great! Creative blend of tunes, and fine playing as well.

Thanks Leonidas - the two just came together of their own accord...

That's the creative mind at work, seeing the obvious parallels where most other would not have looked.

Damn that is crisp and tight! sounds great Paul. Jeez wished you fellas lived out here in Cali, You know If I come back to this Old world, I hope I bring back what I learned so far, and I want to enter with a banjo in my hand, so's I have plenty of time to learn ALL the songs there are to learn. Man love this music.

How timely... I just picked up Old Johnny Boker again today, having fooled around with it but never really learned it.  Really nice playing.

Two thumbs up!  I've always like "Old Jimmy Sutton", and now even more.
