CD Reviews

Lonesome bluegrass, still the best.
John McMillen (bluegrass@mcc-uky.ca | Murray, KY | 07/31/1998
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Some people might have the idea that traditional bluegrass may be fading. Ha! Then along comes a band called Longview. They prove that not only does traditional bluegrass still shine, but its still where bluegrass makes its mark on musical society. Longview has captured the true spirit of what happens to the blues when its mixed with traditional instruments and that high lonesome sound. Dudley Connell (guitar, vocals), Glen Duncan (fiddle), James King (guitar, vocals), Joe Mullins (banjo, vocals), Don Rigsby (mandolin, vocals), and Marshall Wilborn (bass) give us one of the best traditional bluegrass albums of the past few years. They cover it all from Ted Lundy to the Louvin Brothers, Ralph Stanley to Randall Hylton and a few originals thrown in between show that people haven't forgotten where the music came from. Truly a gem to any collection, but you may need two, 'cause you might wear the first one out."
Awesome!!!

"Impeccable harmonies and fine instrumentation dominate this collection of old standards and some old "not so standards.' Dudley says Longview II is in the can and on the way!!! This one will be hard to beat."
Enjoyable!

"Unless you dislike Bluegrass, I fail to see how you cannot like Longview. Six major talents singing n picking makes for an enjoyable CD. It is almost impossible to say "Best Track" as they are all excellent having a true traditional sound. This is the introduction CD for Longview these men are all major talents and you might fear some problems working together. However they submerge the individual into a group effort that produces some fine music."
