Reid is not generally known in Bluegrass circles (though he did win the 1981 National Flatpick guitar contest at Winfield, and has numerous old-time tunes in his huge repertoire), but the work of this superb musician is so musically and technically superb that many of our readers will find a lot to like in this new collection, which is the 14th he has done on his own Woodpecker label. Utilizing various techniques (flat pick, finger style, and bottleneck) his music (all instrumental here) shows a mastery of technique, taste and tonal quality—and is wonderfully recorded. Most of the tunes are from celtic and other foreign sources, but there are lovely renditions of UNCLOUDY DAY, LIFE IS LIKE A MOUNTAIN RAILROAD and MISS THE MISSISSIPPI among the 15 tracks. Lovely work.
