From Earth To Heaven To Me To You

Here's a fine ol' timey album from 1978 that seems to have escaped a CD reissue. Wry Straw (Dungannon, VA) is Tom Bledsoe (guitar), John McCutcheon (fiddle, banjo, guitar), and Rich Kirby (mandolin, banjo, guitar). All of them chip in on other instruments (jaw harp, etc.) as well as vocals.

I used to listen to this album back in the late 70s. What great, rootsy stuff! Tried to find a CD but to no avail. Many thanks!
