Thanks JP and R-B

Not sure if this is the gig I saw playing recently in the Grammy Museum. It was quite good and there was lots of mutual respect between the two of them. I was quite surprised to see a fairly big thing on McGuinn and the Byrds in general in the country section, which was my last stop on the museum tour. I had already slammed the Grammys in my mind for their usual disregard and did not expect them to show up as country content.

I'm not a great fan of Roger McGuinn concerts, although he plays very well and certainly has staying power for a 75-year-old performer. What I don't like is that all his concerts that I've downloaded are pretty much the same. He mostly does old Byrds material, which is ironic because one of his reasons for not re-forming the Byrds with Hillman and Crosby is that he wants the Byrds to be 'a good memory' and that a reunion would be only for the money. Well, using the Byrds memory is how Roger McGuinn earns his money these days. In this recording, only May the Road Rise and Silver Dagger are not Byrd songs. McGuinn has a number of solo albums--some better than others--to draw material from, but apparently their concert value is much less than Byrds material, and even though he has done some fine songs since the Byrds broke up, he rarely plays them. This recording is interesting for the addition of Marty Stuart, the successor to Clarence White's B-bender skills. And Stuart is excellent. His playing is more like a steel guitar than Clarence's, in my opinion, and he has certainly mastered the instrument quite well. As for McGuinn, he's in fine form, as usual, and as usual is very professional. The main interest in this set is the Soldier's Joy/Black Mountain Rag track--again, very different from Clarence's version, which was more syncopated. McGuinn's version is technically very competent, which is not a mean feat for such a fast instrumental, but he does not yet seem as confident as Clarence did. Still, it shows what a good instrumentalist McGuinn can be when he wants to do something more than just old songs. I wish he had developed some of the jazzier playing he did on 5D and now and then later on, but he seems to have decided to perform more or less the same stuff as always. At least he doesn't sound tired of the music yet. Thanks for the upload, R--B, especially since it contains Marty Stuart, who adds a new dimension to the standard McGuinn concert.
