The Seldom Scene-Live At The Cellar Door $65.00

This recording captures a few nights of a typical Seldom Scene live performance circa 1973. During this period, the band was at its pinnacle, in their picking, their vocals, and their unity of ensemble. John Duffey, Ben Eldridge, and Mike Auldridge each have a distinct style that makes their sound unique, both in the tone produced from their respective instruments and their choices of licks and notes, and they were all in their typical excellent form during these recordings. As with all Seldom Scene albums of this period (Act 1, Act 2, Act 3, Old Train), the overriding emphasis is on tight vocals, superb arrangements, and overall tastefully done bluegrass (and some non-bluegrass music on bluegrass instruments). Ben Eldridge's playing, particularly his backup, is phenomenal and sounds fresh, unlike some of his later work, which tended to be derivative (albeit from himself). The material on this album is excellent as well. "The Fields Have Turned Brown", "White Line", and even the parody of "acid grass", "Hit Parade of Love" are representative of the understanding these musicians bring to their music. At no time does any one member contribute anything that doesn't add to the overall ensemble (with the exception, of course, of a few of Duffey's licks). Their vocal arrangements are typical Seldom Scene in that they are constantly turning voice parts upside down (high baritone, low tenor, etc.) and inside out to give the best effect on each song. In general, this is a superb album by one of the best bands ever assembled.
