David Grier is Best of 2008

David Grier - Live At The LindaAudiophile Audition has published their list of the best recordings of 2008. The web magazine focuses on recordings of interest to audiophiles and collectors.

Their 2008 Best of list doesn’t include a bluegrass category, but nonetheless, David Grier made the list. In the category for “Pop Etc,” David topped the list with his live CD, Live at the Linda.

The only other bluegrass mention is in the “Music DVDs” category. Where Bill Monroe: Father of Bluegrass (1993/2008) – Vision Arts Video gets a mention.

Congrats to David Grier for this recognition of a high quality recording and performance.

Be sure to read Audiophile Audition’s July 2008 review of the CD. Here’s an excerpt.

Except for the occasional audience noise and applause, this could be mistaken for a first-rate studio recording. This CD will appeal to fans of bluegrass, Americana, contemporary acoustic music, folk, or anyone who is a fan of fine guitar playing. Grier plays at the highest levels of performance. Highly recommended.
