With 14 Bill Monroe songs, plus the guitar and vocals of Tony Rice, one can't go wrong. So it's not hard to thoroughly recommend this album even though most of Tony's many fans will probably already have most or all of the cuts in this collection. Eight of the pieces are taken from the six volumes of Bluegrass Album Band albums --the supergroup that included Doyle Lawson, J.D. Crowe and Bobby Hicks. Another two come from his Unit of Measure record (JERUSALEM RIDGE and GOLD RUSH), another from Cold On The Shoulder, etc. And, 6 of the songs appeared on a little known earlier Rounder collection titled "Lonesome Moonlight: Songs of Bill Monroe". Our one complaint is that even with an 8-page booklet there is no identification of the other musicians who join Rice on these stellar tracks. ON & ON, RIVER OF DEATH, etc.
