"If you are a bluegrass fan, this is a must for your collection. Tony Rice is a supreme guitarist who also knows what it takes to produce a great sounding song. I have several of his CDs and tapes and throughly enjoy each one. If you love guitar music and other stringed music, then get this album."
Bound for movin' on?

"Don't get me wrong. I'm a fan of Tony Rice, and have been for years. And listening to his albums has turned me on to a group of musicians that form the core of my folk-roots listening: Jerry Douglas as David Grisman being the shining stars. When I latch on to a musician, I expect him/her to lead me down their musical path. Take me with them on their musican growth. While an awesome guitar player and a darn good vocalist, Tony Rice's path has been, for me, a big circle. In this album we find him rehashing some old Ian and Sylvia, for instance, and bringing nothing new to the table. Nothing that sounds different from what he did 15 years ago. Come on, Tony! You're one of the greatest guitar players who ever lived. Let's move on!. I vote for the late-80s Native American as the pinnacle."
A classic bluegrass recording

"Tony Rice is sometimes criticised by "purists" for not sticking to pure bluegrass, and branching off into contemporary and jazz music, even employing piano and drums at times. But, Tony has always maintained a steady stream of pure bluegrass recordings through the years, along with the other. Several of them have become absolute bluegrass classics. "Cold on the Shoulder", "Manzanita", "Skaggs and Rice", "Guitar", "California Autumn" and of course all of the "Bluegrass Album Band" volumes are essentially Tony Rice recordings. This album is an essential recording. No piano or drums here! The songs are great, the musicians Tony has selected are among the best in the world at this type of music, Tony's voice at this point was still in prime condition, and of course his playing here is classic "Rice" flatpicking. This is a "must have" recording in any serious bluegrass collection."
