Show Notes:
Additional note by Dave Royko:

Most of this set is solo banjo. Bela performs plenty of open
improvisation along with, or based on, various compositions of
his own and others. There are a few I couldn't name, but I've
indicated which tunes show up in each track. Also, tracks 1-6
are played as a continuous performance. Tracks 7 and 8 include
David Grisman (mandolin). He enters at 5:21 of track 7 (during
Home Sweet Home), and then he and Bela perform the long
improvisation that makes up the entirety of track 8. This
improvisation actually begins at 8:28 of track 7. One of these
days I might retrack this great set, but until then, here is
how things stand:
