Royal Garden Blues

from Retrospective by Ian Date



Martin Taylor, guitar genius was on tour. He had been in the USA playing with David Grisman. Grisman had given him a mandolin from 1903! I said we need to record that. I am playing a six-string Deering Banjo. Just to make sure it's really weird!
