Dr. Ralph pays homage to his old-time idols
Joe Sixpack -- Slipcue.com | ...in Middle America | 08/15/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Reaching into the past, as only he can, Stanley pays homage to the Virginian songwriting duo of Gilliam Grayson and Henry Whitter, who are best known for the song "Train 45," a longtime standard in the bluegrass canon. Although Grayson & Whitter performed together only briefly -- from 1927-'29 -- they had a big impact on the Stanley Brothers and other bluegrass pioneers such as Bill Monroe. This is a typically stark, haunting Stanley outing... but now we get a hint as to where this style comes from. Nice record, especially since legends rarely pay tribute to little-knowns, a nice gesture, as well as a cool glimpse into the history of the bluegrass sound."
