"Back in Time" is the debut CD from The Vintage Mandolin Quartet. I like David Grisman's concept for "Tone Poems" and the concept for our CD is similar. Each song has a different grouping of vintage instruments. For instance, "Funiculi, Funicula" is played with a 1924 Gibson Style J Mando Bass, 1916 Gibson Style O Guitar, 1924 Gibson K-2 Mando Cello, 1912 Gibson F-4 Mandolin and 1905 Gibson A-4 Mandolin (rhythm). "Stardust" was recorded with a 1950s Kay K1 8901 Guitar, 1996 Gilchrist Mando Cello, 1993 Gilchrist Model 5 Mandolin and Ron's unknown 1940s Upright Bass. "Ah! Marie" features a 1919 Lyon & Healy Style A Mando Cello, 1917 Lyon & Healy Style A Mandola, 1920s Lyon & Healy Style A Mandolin, 1980s Classical M. Horabe Model 35 Guitar, and the unknown 1940's Upright Bass.
