CDR that was cooked up for sale on Pelt's extensive 1998 US Tour. A fine blend of mostly acoustic (banjo, tamboura, guitar, violin) droners with a few folky touches in there for good measure. Some all-time classics here, including "Twin Sisters" (featuring elderly SW Virginia fiddler Coolidge Winesett), the live favorite "Bring Me The Head..." and "Techeod" (left off the album of the same name for some reason).
