Classic Driving Bluegrass
Pete Dumanis | Williamsport, Pa. | 08/31/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album is the closest I've heard to classic Stanley Brothers bluegrass, specifically "How Mountain Girls Can Love" and "Think of What You've Done". Sparkman's banjo picking is tight, flawless and driving. It is as if Ralph Stanley's spirit was shared through a younger apprentice, though Sparkman is most assuredly his own individual with his own masterful style. His version of "Pike County Breakdown" (played by an endless array of tepid bluegrass groups) is the most meticulously pulse - throbbing version I've ever heard. Sparkman derserves stardom."
