After seeing this new band in action (at the 2008 IBMA Convention) I was really looking forward to their debut recording: featuring 4 men with top traditional Bluegrass credentials (Jack Hicks, John Rigsby, Bo Isaac and Randy Thomas), the group projected a dynamic and hard-edged older approach to the music, which unfortunately is not really conveyed to the listener on this disc. The material is OK and nobodyÕs doing anything wrong, but the album lacks the excitement that they generated in person. We can only attribute this to the recording quality, which lacks the ÒpresenceÓ of a rich, authoritative sound that is found on the records of most of todayÕs top bands (and many newer groups as well). Jack Hicks (former banjo picker for Bill Monroe, John Rigsby (who played with Ralph Stanley and Melvin Goins), and Bo Isaac (who picked & sang with Dave Evans) make up a strong, intriguing Bluegrass band, and hopefully future recordings will do them more justice. ROSALEE, TWO MEDALS, FIDDLINÕ JOHN, WINDS OF CHANGE, YOUÕRE NOT EASY TO FORGET, etc.
