A Solid If Not Spectacular Album

"This is a solid if unspectacular collection of songs from one of the founding members of the Dillards. After Doug Dillard left the group in 1968, Rodney carried on with the band releasing albums like Wheatstraw Suite, Copperfields and Tribute to the American Duck, which featured progressive bluegrass/country music. Many of the songs contained on Let the Rough Side Drag wouldn't have sounded out of place on these later-day Dillards albums, especially songs like "Dixieland," "Last Thing on My Mind," "Sawin' on the Strings," and "Blue Yodel #4." In fact, the only original, "Daddy Was a Mover," first appeared on the Dillards' 1973 release Tribute to the American Duck. With a running time of under 27 minutes, it's pretty skimpy, but if you're a fan of the late-period Dillards you'll find much to enjoy here."
