Personnel: Bill Monroe (vocals, mandolin); Tom Ewing (vocals, guitar); Clarence "Tater" Tate (vocals, fiddle); Blake Williams (vocals, banjo); Billy Rose (bass).
Principally recorded at The Grand Ole Opry House, Nashville, Tennessee in May and June 1989. Includes liner notes by Hal Durham.
Recorded live in 1989, Monroe has by this time turned over a majority of lead vocal turns to guitarist Tom Ewing. But the music proves how vibrant and aggressive Monroe's mandolin skills remain. It also features one fantastic cut from a 1948 Opry date. ~ Michael McCall
