CD Reviews

Great intro to Blue Grass
John Graham | Utah | 06/21/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Fire on the banjo and heart breaking longing are melded together for one sweet cd. Fans of good song writing and masterful playing looking to get a feel of Blue Grass music will appreciate this collection of some of the finest examples of the High Lonesome sound on record. Some songs are only available on this disk! I am a Tom Waits, John Coltrane, and Grateful Dead fan, and I continue to listen to and love this disc three years after getting it."
Bluegrass to the Max!

"Imagine you are sitting around after dinner one night and your guests grab thier guitars, banjoes, and mandolins and start playing a bit. You are captivated by the bluegrass sound -- you cannot hear enough of it -- plaintive, melancholy, exuberant, and mesmerizing all at once. Or it may be a Sunday afternoon and the musicians are together again -- you ask them to "play just one more song" -- and you hear this incredible syncopated banjo --mandolin rhythm that you will never forget. These words describe only two of the tracks on this album. This album is a must for Bluegrass fans and a necessity for music lovers in general. You will enjoy it immensely from the rousing mountain songs to the spiritual ones as well. Take my word for it, your soul needs this music!"
