    I really enjoyed this collection, Don. I admired the creative takes on familiar tunes, like The Big Scioty, and I would be proud to have written the original ones, particularly Red Mesa Waltz. But my personal favorite was Elk River Blues, whose slower pace really gave your Heiden room to show off its tone. Just don’t let Michael see the back album cover!

    Thanks! pheff: That back cover pic was taken about 20 years ago when I was younger and stupider. I found the right mandolin now.

    In case anyone wants to know, the mandolin is my 2010 Heiden A5 #A54 w red spruce top. Strings are Curt Mangan phosphor bronze 11-40 set, and pick is a Blue Chip CT55. The individual mics were ADK but I forget the models. The engineer said they were heavily modified. The overhead mic was an AEA ribbon on some tracks and an ADK figure 8 on other tracks.

    My favorite part of the whole project was getting to play with Gregg again on a regular basis. Such fun. Hope we can do it again.

    There is one tune on my bog cedar top Girouard mandola. I wrote the tune right after getting the mandola and named the tune "Max and Lauri" for the builders. They definitely deserve a shout out!

    Love that tune !! Really like the Goat song too ! Did you write the Goat song ? I agree that Girouard mandolins are at the top of the food chain !!

    Thanks guys. Just got a review from Lou Martin:

    "Traditional instrumental music with powerful clarity, truly fine musicianship, and the direct communication to the listener that can only come through years of friendship and shared artistic values. The opening tune is worth the price of admission by itself, and the rest of the record powerfully shines under repeated listening as well. Gregg and Don trade strongly meaningful and thoughtful breaks on guitar and mandolin/mandola respectively on this excellently recorded album, in my opinion a high watermark of the true vine."

    It's bandcamp Friday today.
