Cool live hick music

"A feisty, exuberant disc of live performances on Los Angeles' legendary country TV show, "Town Hall Party." There are a lot of country bigshots on here, but the star of the show --and its anchor -- is legendary guitarist, Joe Maphis. In the 1940s, Maphis helped create a revolutionary guitar style -- flatpicking -- which was copied by Merle Travis, Chet Atkins, Jimmy Bryant and a thousand other hotshot pickers. He stayed in the head of the pack, recording with dozens of country and pop artists, including Wanda Jackson, Ricky Nelson and -- of course-- "Town Hall Party" regulars, the Collins Kids. This CD suffers from poor sound quality, but compensates by the exhilarating historic and musical power of these live performances. Hearing Maphis back country legends such as George Jones, Rose Maddox. and Skeets McDonald is a treat not to be missed, whether it's dubbed from video or not."

"My got to see my Uncle perform here In Fort Lauderdale Florida 30 years ago. Its an experiance i cherrish for rest of my life. I have listen to the late Stevie Gaines and i notice a slight influence in the song called I know a little. My uncle is noted for his showmenship on stage and off . He will always be missed. If you listen to Roy Clark and glenn cambell you'll see an influence. I will say this he is as they say very damed fast. Ive seen many players in my time both virsital and singular. Fined the album fire on the strings. You'll see what i mean. Ty....keep on picken......."
