This may be a little strange but does anyone have the tracklist for the Charles River Valley Boys LP "Bringing in the Georgia Mail"? It was their first, recorded in England. Also does anyone have a clue who the group was when they recorded it? Was it Bob Siggins doing the frailing? And I'm assuming Fritz Richmond was not involved with that lp any ideas? THANKS!

McGrath - Somewhere I have a copy of an LP, "Beatle Country" performed by The Charles River Valley Boys. Must have gotten it about 40 years ago when the Beatles were first making their big splash. The songs lend themselves very well to bluegrass treatments. But I was a callow youth, and had never heard of CRVB, and never saw any other albums featuring them so I figured they were one of those ensembles just put together for this recording. It was not until just a few years ago that I learned they were a gosh-real bluegrass group.
          At about the same time I bought "Beatle Country", I also got an album of Beatles songs played as baroque music; as I recall, the title actually was "Baroque Beatles". And the music lent itself to that ancient genre just as well.

I've got that one too. Pretty good, but I always preferred the Georgia Mail one.

John,
The "Baroque Beatles Book' and 'Beatle Country' were two of my favourite albums - I bought them both at the PX in Wurzburg, Germany when I was stationed there.

Does anybody know where I can hear this "Bringing in the Georgia Mail" album? Of course I would love to own it, but being it such a rare item, I would at least like to hear it.
