From Kilby Snow. Our friend Amy Alvey showed us a clip of Kilby singing this song on the Vestapol DVD Shady Grove: Old Time Music from Kentucky, North Carolina and Virginia. We unintentionally straightened it out but tried to keep close to Kilby’s feel. Ben ended up laying down a bass track using an old Univox hollow-body electric bass that he inherited from a late friend of his. The pickups were broken, so he pressed a bass drum mic against the body and, with some mixing wizardry, got it to sound glorious.
