David Massingill is a great American voice.

"I heard David Massingill this morning on a radio broadcast of a Members concert on WUMB out of Boston. I had heard David's songs before, one at a time. This was the first time I had heard a group of them together. I was amazed at his humor and his story-telling. He embodies everything that is good about the folk tradition. It is altogether fitting that he hails from Bristol, Tennessee/ Virginia, the birthplace of modern music, both rock and country. It was there, in 1927, that the Carter Family, Jimmie Rodgers, and many others were first recorded. This album reflects the best characteristics of that folk tradition. If this album only contained two songs, it would be well worth the price. The first, My Name Joe, which Massingill aptly notes is about friends standing up for friends, which I belive is certainly part of the quintessential bottom line of living. The second, Number One in America, needs no interpretation or comment from me. Perhaps that is the hallmark of a great story/ song. It,indeed, speaks for itself. Do yourself a favor and buy this CD. Better yet, buy both of his CD's. You will not be disappointed."
I really love this album. | Lakeland, Florida | 12/16/1998
