Notable release: Dailey & Vincent

Dailey & Vincent
Alive! In Concert
Pillar Stone Records

This is the seventh album from the self-proclaimed “rockstars of bluegrass,” and the first live one. A companion to the DVD of their public television special and offered exclusively at Cracker Barrel, the CD version is meant to convey a sense of the group’s exuberant stage show that one doesn’t get from their studio recordings. But with the spectacle missing from the audio-only version, the sound (which includes orchestra, and choir on four of the 15 cuts) doesn’t show this great band at its best.
