J.D. CROWE 'Flashback'
J.D. Crowe, one of the leaders of the contemporary Bluegrass scene in the 1970s, was been out of main-stream bluegrass for a few years, but returned with a new band and an excellent re-entry album here, that combines some new material with a good dose of the old standards that Crowe does such a good job on --songs like I'LL JUST PRETEND, MR. ENGINEER, WHEN THE ANGELS CARRY ME HOME, BOUQUET IN HEAVEN, and LONG JOURNEY HOME. Lead vocalist Richard Bennett has a voice reminiscent of a young Tony Rice, and Don Rigsby on mandolin & Randy Howard on fiddle help produce a top-flight, tight bluegrass sound. IF I COULD GO BACK HOME AGAIN, SLED RIDIN', TIL MY DYING DAY, NASHVILLE SKYLINE RAG, EVER CHANGING WOMAN, etc.
