I just want to contradict another reviewer's comments that these performances are not up to par. I think they are wonderful. Many bluegrass musicians like myself are getting to see renditions of songs and tunes, and those of us that study the nuances of Scruggs-style picking are finding endless examples of how Earl really played them. It would be possible but very improbable for any group to have the same energy in a TV studio that they had live at Carnegie Hall. To me, it is even more enlightening to see them in a relaxed atmosphere. The quality from tune to tune is extraordinary and shows their consistency and professionalism. I will buy every one they ever produce.

Lester, Earl and the band are in fine form on volume 4. Several of my favorites are Lester's vocal on I Know What it Means to Be Lonesome, Earl's banjo backup work on Nine Pound Hammer and the bands vocal and instrumental work on Shady Grove. It is also nice to see Randy Lynn playing the autoharp on Wildwood Flower and I Wander How the Old Folks Are at Home. The shows are live and fast paced, even the commercials are fun to watch. I never cease to be amazed how the band members back each other up, stay out of each others way and come together for the vocals. This is band etiquette as it should be.

Two more outstanding performances from recently discovered videotapes of the Flatt & Scruggs TV show.

This volume is worth the price for the performance of "Cabin On The Hill", one of Lester and Earl's best songs, on the first show.

The second show features Earl's son Randy, now a successful record producer in his own right, playing the autoharp.

I purchased all these old Flatt and Scruggs TV Shows and I'm really enjoying them. Brings back a lot of memories of a simpler time in America. Flatt and Scruggs laid the ground work and set the standard for the live music TV show. Lester and Earl had a great band and Lester had a way of moving the show along so there was no dead air time. Great addition to my collection and something you would be proud to pass on to family members.

This is an awesome series of DVD's that should be in every Bluegrass music fan's collection! True, down-home Bluegrass doesn't get any better than the early Flatt & Scruggs versions and the fact that it's a trip back in time to watch these shows, which were recorded live, is just icing on the cake!
Buy them all---you won't regret it!
And, to The Powers That Be: More! We want More of this series! ;o)
