He's very much missed.
"New Dimensions In Banjo and Bluegrass" is amazing. I've owned it in vinyl since it came out.
Has anyone digitized it? I've owned the vinyl for a million years and would kill (figuratively, FIGURATIVELY!) to have it on CD. I search every so often, but no joy.
(Whereas I've found a couple other impossible to find LPs on CD via Korea and Japan — the Topic LP -- Fisher Family -- came with the cover being a reduction of the LP jacket but with a Japanese insert and edge overlay. And I found "The Great Metropolitan Steam Band" available from Korea.)
