Live from LaVal's #5Live from laVal's episode taped on February 6, 1994 featuring the exciting vocal/instrumental duo Following May (Paul Smicker and Dayla Soul) and the master of the bow-hammered cymbalom, Micheal Masley accompanied by Oakland Symphony first cellist, Dan Reiter.
Following May was at their peak of popularity when they appeared on the show for this 3rd and final time. They had headlined at Hotel Utah and the Paradise Lounge and were on their way to greater things when an unfortunate personality clash between the principles ended the collaboration. Their unique harmony stylings and very strong guitar interplay is fully on display in this episode.
Because of the extraordinary length of one of Masley's selections on this program, this episode is being presented in two parts. In this first part, the focus is on Following May, with just a short segment on Masley. Part two of this program, with a fuller program of Masley footage, will be presented as the 18th show in this series.
This program opens with a short introductory video by Earl Oliver.
