Synopsis

Amazon.com essential recording
Rather than be constricted by traditional-bluegrass structure, this quintet of veterans seem liberated by it. Their free and easy style offers expert musicianship, exuberant harmonies, and an infectious zest for the material. On this effort, they tackle George Jones's "Open Pit Mine" along with a couple of hot-picking showcases and two sterling a capella gospels featuring impeccable five-part harmonies. Fiddler Stuart Duncan, banjoist Alan O'Bryant, and mandolinist Roland White handle the breaks with aplomb. Nothing revolutionary takes place, but perhaps that's the point, and although this 1993 recording picked up a Grammy, it's not significantly better than any of their other consistently solid albums. --Marc Greilsamer

CD Reviews

One of the best albums they put out
Barbara A. Cavage | PA | 08/01/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is one of the bands finest works! The singing is flawless, and the harmony is impeccable. Alan O'Bryant does an amazing job on "Kansas City Railroad Blues." I personally love to listen to Stuart Duncans fiddle playing, and he plays another contest winning song here on "Soppin' the Gravy." Pat Enrights vocals are rich and filled with energy on every note sings. If you are a fan of bluegrass then this is must-have album. I own other albums by the NBB and I personally think this is the best one I own. Giving this album 5 stars is an understatement!"
