It's a tribute indeed to a great band when they can follow up an album as powerful & perfect as Blue Highway's 1st release (IT'S A LONG LONG ROAD, REB-1719) with a second release that compares favorably with it, as this 13-song collection certainly does. The east Tennessee band features a sterling combination of fine, mostly new material, tasteful arrangements that make lovely use of Rob Ickes tasteful dobro playing, and unusually strong singing: Tim Stafford, Shawn Lane and Wayne Taylor all have great voices --they sound terrific in any and all combinations. Those of you who have seen them in person know how effective their gospel pieces are, such as GOD MOVES IN A WINDSTORM and TWO COATS. I don't know if this band can get any better --catch them any time you can --they're having fun and playing GREAT MUSIC. A superb disc.
