Tex Logan's home, New Jersey, July 4, 1965

The Charles River Valley Boys' second album for Prestige Records, "Bluegrass Get Together," featured the powerhouse fiddling of Tex Logan. The year after we made the album, Tex invited us to his New Jersey home for some Texas hospitality on the Fourth of July. Picking, it goes without saying, ensued. Here, Tex indicates the location of the note he's looking for. ("Bluegrass Get Together" and the CRVB's first album for Prestige, "Bluegrass and Old Timey Music" are both included in full on the 2003 Prestige/Folklore CD "The Charles River Valley Boys," PRCD-24280-2.)
