Rick, you might be right that Emerson and Waldron were first, they were from about the same era, and just as good. Either way, I'd think Bill Emerson was the one responsible. By the way, Cliff Waldron has a new CD out on Rebel, and Rebel has also released a "Best Of" and a Waldron-Emerson sampler as well. .

Not too many years ago (I know, it was more than I think) I saw Charlie, Bill Y, Jimmy G, and a banjo player that I can't remember at a winter hotel type concert. The first set was what you'd expect, but the second one was truly wonderful. Charlie sez, "OK, whatta ya wanta hear?" So for the next hour we fired off requests (politely, of course) and Charlie and the boys came up with them. I remember I asked for Ages And Ages Ago. Charlie says, "Oh, yeah, that's a good one. We haven't done that in, well, ages!" So after a brief consultation with the banjo player who had never done it, out it came. Like I said, wonderful! I don't remember if I was the one who asked or not, but Bill did Lord Don't Leave Me Here, another one of those gospel songs that leave you wondering if you've made the right choices ~~ gives me chills every time I hear it, but to hear it live, welllll.

Oh, yeah, they did Fox On The Run that night too! Truly a night that belongs in the memorable performance thread.
