Dan Crary - Lady's Fancy
Stevan Rogers | Portland, OR. | 09/26/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)
"This is the recording that elevated Dan into the ranks of the flatpicking guitar elite. The touch, tone, and execution, are all lessons on "how it is done". Check out "Huckleberry Hornpipe" and "Jenny's Waltz". Besides all of the lessons one can learn here, it is simply a pleasure to listen to."
Dan is "The Man" on this recording

"I would disagree with the other reviewer who wrote that this CD elevated Crary to the ranks of the flatpicking elite. His previous recording "Bluegrass Guitar" (with "The Devil's Dream" among others) and his work on the Bluegrass Alliance's album (including some of the most famous flatpicking work ever recorded with his versions of "Beaumont Rag" and "Free-Born Man") had already allowed Mr. Crary to make a mark in the flatpicking world that has not been overshadowed since.This recording is both exciting and beautiful and his companions are all giants - recorded back in the early 70s. Half of the cuts include the original New Grass Alliance with Sam Bush while the other half include essentially the "Sundance" band from California with Byron Berline and Vince Gill among them."If the Devil Dreamed...." is a flamenco-flatpicking solo virtuoso performance, but all the other recordings include hot work from his "guest stars". The titular "Lady's Fancy" ends the recording with a fluorish - starting with another flamenco-flavored introduction, then building to a full-tilt bluegrass boogie jam. Serious flatpickers have been studying (and loving!) this recording for more than 20 years. Frankly, this is one of the landmark flatpicking albums of all time."
