    Yeah, Ive had A show of hands and Yin-Yang eever since they came out, but the first time I heard Vic with the Flecktones I wasnt really crazy about it. Now Ive gone back and listened to some, and I have to say I love Fleck's Banjo interacting with Vic's bass. Im gonna go buy an album or two this week, and am open for any suggestions. I hear Live Art is good................
     
  2. "Live Art" is great. "Flight of the Cosmic Hippo" is my favorite, but you really can't go wrong with any of them. Their latest one, "Outbound", is really good as well. Get 'em all!
     
  3. I am a little partial to 3 Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest it has Vic playing alot of fretless.
