Synopsis

Amazon.com
Larry Perkins is a banjo and guitar picker who has been around forever without getting the credit he deserves, but other musicians recognize his value, for they lined up around the block to guest on this wonderful album. Alison Krauss and Bobby Osborne sing a lovely duet on the Carter Family's "The Storms Are on the Ocean"; Earl Scruggs, Sonny Osborne and John Hartford pick with relaxed agility on the Carter Family's "Foggy Mountain Top"; Josh Graves, Del McCoury and Glen Duncan play with tender sweetness on Perkins' "Lullaby for Leanne." With two songs by Mississippi John Hurt, four from Uncle Dave Macon and four by Perkins himself, the whole album is anchored emotionally as well as rhythmically by Perkins' unforced, reassuring picking. --Geoffrey Himes

CD Reviews

A must have cd for the serious lovers of bluegrass music
09/03/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you're serious about bluegrass music, this as an album you'll want for your musical library. From the opening instrumental,"Thanks Wade", to the final song, "A Touch Of The Past", which is also the title track, this album is ALIVE with the true spirit of the music loved by millions. It is much, much more than just a bluegrass album...it's where the music came from, how that past has influenced where it is today and where it's going as well. Benny Martin, Earl Scruggs, Mac Wiseman, Sonny Osborne, John Hartford, Billy Rose, Terry Eldridge, Vassar Clements, Alison Krauss, Josh Graves, David Greer, Jimmy Campbell, Leroy Troy... just to name a few of the many friends of Larry's who contributed to make this album a classic... for many years to come.Larry Perkins is my friend and he is a gentleman in the old time sense of the word. He is highly respected by the greatest names in the bluegrass world for his dedication to the past of the music and for his vision of the music as an evolving form."
