The program is a delight from beginning to end, and includes the band's own renditions of classic material "Workin' on a Building," "Rose of Old Kentucky" as well as a number of tribute performances by the guest artists. Ricky Skaggs and Sharon White deliver a gorgeous duet version of Townes Van Zandt's "If I Needed You," while Harris and Ronstadt team up on "The Sweetest Gift." Original lead singer John Starling joins the Scene on several songs, and the resulting sound will make longstanding fans of the band wistful for the old days; though mandolinist and tenor singer John Duffey is beginning to sound his age at this point, the old magic is still there on "You Don't Know My Mind" and "Rose of Old Kentucky." The band's rollicking rendition of the traditional gospel classic "Take Me in Your Lifeboat" is the perfect finale.

    A wonderful Concert

    The Seldom Scene were a fine progressive bluegrass band in the 70s and 80s. This set is where I first heard them and is still my favorite. Several fine guest appearances add variety and spice to the proceedings and they omit the clowning that slows down the other two live discs I own.The sound quality is first rate. If you want only one CD of the group, this is the one I recommend.
