    That’s a great video. I’ve enjoyed it several times over the years.

    Amazing. I've seen bits & pieces of that Adler House show before - I'm glad I took this time to watch it start to finish. One thing that is really cool about this video is that Paul Goelz got some great shots of Jethro's left hand while he's doing chord melodies. Fascinating to watch. The Arkansas Traveler variations were very entertaining. Makes me think of this version referenced in the Cafe interview with Andy Statman:

    Of course Don Stiernberg and John Parrot are stellar in this Adler House show as well.
    Interesting to see Don with a Monty instead of the Nugget.

    Thanks Chuck for posting, and thanks Paul Goelz for this amazing recording!

    This has to be one of the best mandolin performances of all time
    "Mean Old Timer, He's got grey hair, Mean Old Timer he just don't care
    Got no compassion, thinks its a sin
    All he does is sit around an play the Mandolin"
