This is a very solid band from central Virginia that may well make a name for itself with a strong presentation and some fine songs from the pen of its leader, Mike Andes. The group has recently been added to the roster of Pinecastle Records. Featuring the standard five instruments, the group is instrumentally sound, buth their strength lies more in their singing. ASndes is a good strong lead singer even if he lacks a country edge to his rather plain voice. But Andes' songs are really worth hearing(his fine HEAVEN GOT AN ANGEL was already featured by Charlie Waller). TALKING TO HER MEMORY, I'VE BEEN AWAY TOO LONG and OLD HEART OF MINE are all well written songs with good melodies that add a lot to a nice album that also features good versions of READY FOR THE TIMES TO GET BETTER, TRAVELLING KIND, WANDERING BOY and NOBODY'S DARLING BUT MINE.
