Keeping with my previous post about slightly odd cover songs that veer from the true blue path here is something you don't hear everyday, a blue grass version of a stone cold classic, Walk Don't Run by The Ventures as done by A Mr. Mike Auldridge from the album called Blues and Blue Grass from 1974 on the Takoma label. I'm not much of a blue grass fan but this song is really pretty killer. They playing on it is pretty sensational. And if there is one thing i love it is a great cover song of a classic done in a totally different style that works. And this one to my ears works just fine.
Mr. Auldridge was born 30 December 1938, Washington, D.C. is widely acknowledged as a premier resophonic guitar (the instrument formerly referred to as a Dobro) player. He played with The Seldom Scene for many years, creating a fusion of bluegrass with jazz, folk and rock. Mr. Auldridge also has his hand in selling his signature model of Dobro guitars for Beard guitars these days
