Joe Mullins & the Radio Ramblers have released a live concert DVD, filmed March 9, 2013 at the Centerville High School Performing Arts Center, in Centerville, OH.
It features the band on a set of 14 songs, along with two more performed with the Centerville Alternative Strings, a youth orchestra under the director of Doug Eyink. A discussion between Joe and Doug is included as an extra feature, where they talk about combining the Alternative Strings with the band on an especially poignant Bill Anderson song, Some Kind Of War.
All the material is taken from the three Radio Ramblers albums released to date. Included are:
- Smoke Along The Track
- Our Old Kentucky Home
- Katy Daley
- Fallen Leaves
- Worth It All
- Listen, They’re Playing My Song
- Steel Guitar Rag
- Bottom Of A Mountain
- A Blue Million Tears
- I Want To Be Loved But Only By You
- Rock Of Ages Keep My Soul
- Be Jesus To Someone Today
- I’m No Longer An Orphan
- Cruisin’ Timber
- Some Kind Of War
If you ever wondered if they can pull off that close harmony on stage… they can!
The Radio Ramblers are Joe Mullins on banjo, Mike Terry on mandolin, Evan McGregor on fiddle, Duane Sparks on guitar, and Randy Barnes on bass. Their original bass player, Tim Kidd, is featured on this live video.
Here’s a look at one of the songs, Cruisin’ Timber, performed with the Alternate Strings, which features the biggest bluegrass chop ever heard.
The self-titled DVD is available for $19.95 from the Radio Ramblers web site.
