Subject: RE: Red Allen, Frank Wakefield & Kentuckyans
I'm with ya, Rick. That was an amazing band. On top of all the great musicianship, I've always loved Red Allen's singing. I haven't heard those tracks in many years. I have a lot of Red's later work but, for some reason, I don't have those. Guess I'll have to give Dick a call. I even liked the later stuff he did with David Grisman and Jerry Garcia. Many purists would say that Garcia wasn't exactly playing bluegrass with the group but I still enjoy those recordings.

Does Pete Kuykendall (aka Pete Roberts) record or perform anymore? I figured he's too busy publishing Bluegrass Unlimited.
