User reviews
***** sounds good. Chuck all your Grateful Dead albums in the trash, and get this here album, nonstop picking, fiddling and singing, a complete joy from go to whoa, the greatest album that white folks recorded in 1973.

"At 4:30 AM Thursday, August 9, 1973...we began our pilgrimage to Galax...In regards to Hippies—I saw none! There were a great number of long-haired young folks, with beards, bare feet and blue jeans, but they too came to make music...Some of the very best music makin' came from these young kids...None of the selections on this album were recorded at the actual competition...The selections here recorded in the August sun...rain...wind...in the dark of night, at the break of dawn, in cattle stales, on tailgates, standing in mud puddles, all in Galax's Felts Park...Tennvale employed a pair of Martians to do the recording." Jim Weaver (from booklet, which includes recipes on the back)
