LONESOME STANDARD TIME 'Lonesome As It Gets'
This is the 3rd, and apparently final album from this now disbanded group that featured Larry Cordle, Glen Duncan & Butch Baldassari. Now involved in other groups & projects, these fine musicians have left us 3 uniformly excellent recordings of top-notch traditional Bluegrass highlighted by Cordle’s fine, well-written songs. A couple of strong instrumentals featuring Duncan’s fine fiddling (DUNCAN’S BLUES & BLUEFIELD) help set off good Cordle songs like ANYTHING SOUTHBOUND, BACK ALONG THE LINE, COMING HOME and the title song. This band developed an identity & distinctive sound that will be missed on the Bluegrass scene. Nice job. BREAM, YOU’VE WALKED ON MY HEART, MOTHER THE QUEEN OF MY HEART, etc.
