I know right? such a beautifully produced record - everything has this effervescent, chiming sheen to it

the only one i have is "live at carnegie hall" and while it's great i have always itched for something recorded in a proper studio

their "martha white" theme was the inspiration for prarie home companion's powdermilk biscuits iirc

Earl Scruggs Revue Live At Kansas State was the first one I bought. Good mix of trad, 40s, 50s (?) and def 60s material, incl Dylan and Joni Mitchell, plus Don Nix's good "Everybody Wants To Go To Heaven" (nooobody wants to die"--always wanted ro hear Sly Stone cover that) Amazon shows it as a twofer w Dueling Banjos. Good basic description and full track list for Live... here
