Earl Scruggs (1924-2012) Revue - Super Jammin' is right, with cast of all-stars!

Gosh, I hate writing these posts.  This not really an obituary, but it is.  This is one of my all-time favorite records.  Earl Scrcuggs Revue - Super Jammin'  I bought it originally when it came out - back in 1984, it's not a new edition to my collection.  The songs are wonderful, but what's most impressive is the sheer number of all-time great musicians who play on it.  They likely weren't all in the same studio at the same, but this record still has what might be the largest collection of A-listers on any type Revue album.  They are:  Lester's sons Gary, Steve, and Randy, Jimmy Messina, Kenny Loggins, Jim Keltner, Doug Kershaw, Loudon Wainwright III, Joan Baez, Johhny Cash, Michael Martin Murphy, Alvin Lee, Billy Joel, Willie Hall, Bonnie Bramlett, Waylon Jennings, Charlie Daniels, Leon Pendarvis, Ron Cornelius, Larry Gatlin, Dan Fogelberg, the Pointer Sisters, George McCorkle, Jerry Eubanks, and many others.  The song I am featuring a song from this album called Rolling in my Dreams - by Don Nix, click this post's tile to hear it.
