"This talented group recorded three albums of which this was the first. The members were Wanda Vick (electric guitar, fiddle, dobro, pedal steel, lap steel, mandolin, lead acoustic guitar), Pam Gadd (lead vocals, harmony vocals, banjo, acoustic guitar), Pam Perry (second lead vocals, harmony vocals, mandolins, acoustic guitar), Nancy Given Prout (Drums, harmony vocals), Kathy Mac (bass, harmony vocals).Their music was mainly up-tempo, with the only ballads being Where did we go wrong and Teach me how to say goodbye. Those two sad songs provide a contrast with the good-time music that dominates this album. Among the more typical tracks, I particularly like Breaking new ground, Go down swinging, On the bayou and Easy to say hard to prove, but every track here is entertaining. The closing track is an instrumental, co-written by Nancy and Wanda.It may be that Wild Rose were hoping to follow the example of Highway 101 but for whatever reason, their music did not sell. At least we can give Capitol credit for allowing them to record three albums before giving up on them.If you enjoy good-time country music, you should enjoy this album."
