Orange Blossom Special

I had the honor of recording Flatt and Scruggs in Chicago around late '62 or early '63 with Sheldon Danielson the Chief Engineer for WFMT. The station later played excerpts on the Midnight Special program. At the time I had no idea who Flatt and Scruggs were. I was a city boy into rock and some folk. Country was not an interest of mine. I've developed a minor interest in it since then.

I listened to several versions of he song on YouTube and although this is one of the shortest, it is my favorite.

Orange Blossom Special is a great song, but I like "Foggy Mountain Breakdown" and "the Wreck of ole 97" better. YMMV.
