Different Strokes is the debut of the bluegrass-fiddler Alison Krauss.
This was a limited run LP recorded in Crusade Studio, Flora Illinois, and released in 1986. The sessions were produced by Alison Krauss's family and by Jim Hoiles the old time fiddler and musicologist. Bruce (Swamp) Weiss helped with the arrangements and production. The recordings were all taped in one long day session. Louise Krauss produced the album photo art cover. This was recorded when Alison was only 14 years old and proves the genius level of her talent at a remarkable age. Alison's brother Viktor (bass) elevates many of these pieces to a jazz level - inspiring his future career in Jazz and Popular music. Swamp Weiss became known as "The Sideman" for these sessions, but recorded original acoustic albums as a solo performer. Only 300 First Edition LPs were pressed.
