Product Description

There is some outstanding guitar picking on this obscure disc by two musicians from Michigan: Strings plays guitar and sings, and is especially dynamic on tunes like BEAUMONT RAG and SALT CREEK. He is joined by Don Julin on mandolin and tenor vocal; the duo offers 17 tracks on this disc, just about all of them from the Bluegrass and Old-time repertoires. Apart from the dynamite version of BEAUMONT RAG which kicks off the record, the pair does some nice work on WALK ON BOY, OPEN UP THEM PEARLY GATES, I AM A PILGRIM, and POOR ELLEN SMITH. Especially effective are the slower paced LONESOME MOONLIGHT WALTZ, and a good rendition of one of our favorite songs, MISS THE MISSISSIPPI AND YOU, the great Jimmie Rodgers number. A good part of the album was recorded “live”. No less than 3 of the songs hark back to the Stanley Brothers— SHARECROPPERS’ SON, THAT HOME FAR AWAY, and HOW MOUNTAIN GIRLS CAN LOVE. A neat album that is not likely to be found in stores !
