Review

One of the best albums of Scruggs' solo career, Live at Kansas State is a mirror image of his best live work with Flatt & Scruggs from the earlier decade. Backed by the Earl Scruggs Revue, an electric band that includes his two sons (with bassist Gary Scruggs doing most of the singing), he brings his virtuosity intact into the electric rock age, and this is a rocking band as well as a bluegrass outfit, doing songs by Bob Dylan and Joni Mitchell, '40s standards, and Jimmie Rodgers material interspersed with good originals. It's all just as enjoyable as the best Flatt & Scruggs material, only different, with electric bass pumping away and electric guitar sharing the spotlight with the banjo. ~ Bruce Eder
