Bluegrass Disco Covers

Upon seeing that I had played Spectrum's version of "I Will Survive" on a recent Moonshine Show, Jeanette Williams wrote to me:
I recorded that on my newest release "Thank You For Caring". ... I didn't realize that anyone else had cut it. I hear that Gloria is going to re-cut it this year, the 30th anniversary of the original release.
I haven't heard her new CD yet but am a big fan of some of the tracks on Get in the Boat and Too Blue, two of her previous releases.

And I certainly am a big fan of The Berkshire Mountains Bluegrass Festival two-LP compilation. If you ever come across this album, do not hesitate to buy it. It is chock full of terrific recordings from some of the biggest names in bluegrass.
