OCEANS OF DIAMONDS w/ The Irregulars – Shawn Camp and Tim O’Brien on twin fiddles, well-known rhythm guitarist John Prine, Richard Bailey-banjo, JellyRoll Johnson-harmonica, Dan Dugmore- steel guitar. You can hear the Jimmy Martin version in Podcast #4

HIGH ON A HILLTOP w/ The Irregulars featuring “Lonesome Pat” McLaughlin w/ Shawn Camp on electric guitar, Alan O’Bryant on banjo, Bill Kenner on mandolin, Dan Dugmore wailin’ on pedal steel


KEITH & ROONEY Audio track medley of song first released on their 1963 Prestige Folklore album. Bill Keith’s banjo-picking is so good on this tune, in fact, that it got him hired away to join Bill Monroe’s Bluegrass Boys.

 

KEITH & ROONEY Some short excerpts from the Prestige album – there’s so much record surface noise that it sounds like it was recorded in the 20s – except that bluegrass hadn’t been invented yet
