CD Reviews

Must Have Bluegrass
Bill Pen | Hamburg, PA USA | 10/14/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Jimmy Martin was a great bluegrass singer, with a wonderful, distinctive voice. He wrote lots of great bluegrass songs. He had a great mandolin player, Paul WIlliams, who played Jimmy's F4. A lot of his songs are corny, but that can be fun. To my ears, he wasn't often singing from the heart, but maybe he was. I'd rate about 80% of this set 5 star, but some of it is lamentable. Thus, 4 stars. When he brought in some backup singers to coo in the background, that was terrible. Attempts at sounding like Nashville country didn't work for me. I didn't much like the snare drum. I can't stand his taste in clothing and hats, but I love the singing, most of the songs, and the mandolin."
