This is so very well recorded. Great production values as well as excellent playing.  That's my old Cammeyer Vibrante Royal banjo.  It looks like it has the same strings I put on it when I sold it to Bill.  A real gut string for the middle G and a "D Series"  copper-wound lute string (copper wound over a thin metal core which is wrapped in nylgut filaments),both from Aquila. These are the best sounding 3rd and 4th strings I've found for zither-banjos.  Nylon or Nylgut is also good for string 3.

The CD sales site, however, mistakenly believes I'll buy it without a track listing. I have been seeing that a lot. No tracks, no run time...a "trailer" for some reason...but otherwise, nothing but props from other famous people.

Seems weird. I like his stuff...but tell me what exactly am I going to get?

You're right. Nowhere on the website is there a track listing. It may be found here:

I like this album a lot. And it is two discs. A video disc and an audio CD.
