  • $13.50


Available only on cassette for many years, this is a very welcome CD re-issue of an album that is a classic and may be the very best of Sparks’ many recordings in a long & distinguished career. Though there are only 10 songs, every one of them is top-notch, from Larry’s distinctive guitar piece CARTER’S BLUES to his wonderful moody gospel classic GREAT HIGH MOUNTAIN, GIRL AT THE CROSSROADS BAR, I’D RATHER BE ALONE and Alan Mills wonderful LOVE OF THE MOUNTAINS are traditional Bluegrass at its best. Spark’s band at the time included Tommy Boyd on dobro & banjo, and Kirk Brandenberger on fiddle. With a fine new set of notes by Chris Skinker. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.MAKING BELIEVE, NOBODY’S BUSINESS. WHEN I LAY MY BURDENS DOWN etc.
