PETER ROWAN 'The First Whippoorwill'

PETER ROWAN 'The First Whippoorwill'

  • $15.00


For those who like to hear Peter Rowan in a straight Bluegrass setting, this may be his best record of all. The former Blue Grass Boy does justice to the 12 great songs here, all taken from the Bill Monroe repertoire, such as GOODBYE OLD PAL, MIGHTY DARK TO TRAVEL, I BELIEVED IN YOU DARLING, USED TO BE, WHEN YOU ARE LONELY, BOAT OF LOVE, and SITTIN’ ALONE IN THE MOONLIGHT—classics every one. The album was recorded in 1990, and includes the stellar backup work of Sam Bush (Mand.), Alan O’Bryant (guitar & tenor vocals), Richard Greene & Buddy Spicher (fiddles), Bill Keith (banjo) and the late Roy Huskey Jr on bass. Great job.
