Silver and Gold--mostly gold
Becky L. Flarity | Buckley, WA USA | 05/31/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album is stunningly unique and breaks through the traditional Genre boundaries. There is a great swing dance tune and "Death Angel" transcends the deepest religious music. Even with such diversity, the album hangs together perfectly with no weak tunes. I was so delighted with this album that I bought "Moonlighter" and "Friends for all Time" also. These were very disappointing by comparison"
Hats off to Claire and Front Porch for a winner !

"Claire Lynch's Silver & Gold is just about my favourite bluegrass album. The songs are catchy, instantly hummable and Claire's voice is superb, but the best thing is the playing of the Front Porch Band. They're awesome, either wonderfully melodic as individual soloists (listen to that fantastic guitar) or tremendously assured and dynamic as a unit. Fresh too, I'm almost sick of hearing the obligatory sessions players (Jerry Douglas etc) on every album. Each song is great, my current favourites are "Who Knows What Tomorrow May Bring", "Hitchcock Railway" and "Safe Haven". Claire is a talented writer as well as interpreter. Can't wait for more CL&FP music."
Uplifting music from the queen of bluegrass

"From her early eighties album as lead singer of the Front porch string band, Claire has always been my favorite bluegrass singer, though Rhonda Vincent, Alison Krauss and Lynn Morris are all brilliant.Claire's voice is similar to Emmylou's in many ways. This is no bad thing and in any case the music they record is quite different. Emmylou's only bluegrass album, Roses in the snow, is not like any of Claire's albums.Claire and her musicians (including other members of the Front porch string band) stay close to the traditions of the music. The credits show that drums are used on several tracks, but you don't really notice them.If wishes were horses is a very fast song that gets the album off to a great start, but although the pace of the music drops after that, the quality doesn't. There are occasional moments of sadness in this album, particularly Out among the stars, but most of the songs are uplifting and cheerful.Claire co-wrote four of the songs - Silver and gold, Sweetheart darling of mine, Death angel and Out among the stars, demonstrating that she can write songs as well as sing. This might just be Claire's best album, but I enjoy all of them enormously. If you enjoy bluegrass music, you will surely enjoy Claire's music."
