By the time Copperfields was released, the Dillards were in full contemporary folk-rock mode (and sounding rather like a bluegrass version of another fine Elektra group, Bread). Now featuring Herb Pederson (replacing Doug Dillard) on banjo and vocals, the album is slick, catchy, fully orchestrated and, well, commercial. And, in a perverse but striking reversal of previous practice, they abandon their instruments instead of their voices for this a cappella version of the beautiful Paul McCartney tune. Not strictly kosher for an instrumental collection perhaps but a fitting acknowledgement that the voice is and always will be the premier instrument.
