Synopsis

Amazon.com
No one knew it at the time, but the sessions for Dream Scene were probably the last recording project of the Seldom Scene. The death of co-founder John Duffey has left the band's future in doubt, but this album serves as a fitting farewell gesture from one of the greatest acts in the history of bluegrass. The group's trademark virtues are all in evidence--the sparkling, unhurried picking, the gorgeous vocal harmonies and a mix of material that manages to bridge the oldest of rural traditions and the most accessible modern pop. --Geoffrey Himes

CD Reviews

Seldom Scene's future is NOT in doubt....
05/19/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Just a note to say the editorial review is off base when it suggests this is the last recording project for Seldom Scene, or that its future is in doubt with John Duffey's death. In fact, Seldom Scene has had an active performance schedule since John's death; the band remains one of the top bluegrass groups, and I feel confident we can expect lots of great music, both live and recorded, from this great band. (John Duffey, of course, will always be treasured and greatly missed...)"
One of the Best Efforts of a Great Bluegrass Band
James Skrydlak | Pella, Iowa | 07/29/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Seldom Scene never disappoint, no matter who the personnel. I think the world of John Starling as a lead singer and Mike Auldridge as a dobro player, but Dudley Connell and Fred Travers are, if anything, even better. "Tulsa Chili Bop" simply must be heard; it has all the energy of a classic bluegrass instrumental plus much more interesting harmonies. John Duffey was at the top of his vocal form in "Little Sparrow" and "Boatman", Ben Eldridge is in his usual impeccable form, and Dudley Connell, in addition to his fine singing, plays some of the finest back-up guitar on record. It's a shame that Duffey's death prevented this edition of the Scene from recording more than this one CD."
Wow!

"What a wonderful album. Right now this is one of my favorite Bluegrass cd's. If you are a fan of Bluegrass music at all, this is a must buy. No time to go on and on...just buy it.mrv"
