Thanks GUEST,oj. Graves is one of my favorites, has been for forty years at least. I still have an album Josh and Kenny Baker recorded for Dave Samuelson called “Bucktime.” It brings out Graves' singing as well as his playing. Wonderful entertainer.

Josh used to play sometimes at Amazingrace Coffee House on the campus of Northwestern University. Jethro Burns would be there as well. Sometimes he'd get so drunk he could hardly play but we always enjoyed the show.

Friends once told me that, after all the years of playing with Flatt & Scruggs, his stint with the Earl Scruggs Review was the first time he had enough income to even buy a house.

I'll look for your article.
