A Favorite
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I love this album. The music sounded better the more I listened to this piece when I first bought it 15 years ago. Today, it even sounds still better. The vocals are terrific. The playing is top-notch, and the blend of the styles of individual musicianship is fantastic. Two of my favorite songs are "Going to the Fair," and "How about You." I like the first one because it beautifully portrays the excitement and sense of romance at a county fair. It's also an incredibly funky tune. "How about You" has an amazing message that isn't preachy. The whole album is heart-felt, and the vocals have an vivid presence that is overwhelming -- especially on the tune "Crazy in the Night.""
Amazing Music

"This was to be the first album by New Grass that I had listened to, and it was to be my official introduction into the world outside of the rock music I was accustomed to listening to at that time in my life. Nay sayers may say that this is not "real" bluegrass, and who am I to judge?? Yet, this is the album that introduced me a whole new world and experience in music. Likewise, the talent of these musicians is unmatched- in my opinion at least. If you still aren't convinced, take it from the ears of a newborn- our son had severe colic. After spending god-knows-how-much in different formulas, mylecon drops, and Mozart C.D.'s (and any other idea other more experienced parents had), his tired mommy needed tunes of her own to hear (that would be me). Low and behold, they soothed our son's fretful cries- each and every time we played them. To this day, he loves these C.D.'s as much as we do! I have now collected all of the C.D.'s here, and am back to replace Barren County- ours is well- worn. Thanks New Grass Revival for your music- we miss you!"

"Like some of the others here, putting on this album instantly transports me back to the time I discovered it -- for me a summer of discovery bumming around the mountains of Wyoming in a pickup truck full of climbing gear.Over the years I've followed Sam Bush's career and while it gets better all of the time, this album holds up to anything since... the energy and no-holds barred performances are just amazing.Buy this CD, shed your skin, and make it the soundtrack to your next adventure."
