  • $13.50


Skaggs and his superb band get to really shine on this well-recorded collection of 15 songs & tunes. The music is essentially hard-driving traditional Bluegrass, with no less than 10 of the pieces either instrumentals or classic standards from the first generation heroes (Monroe, Stanley Bros., Flatt & Scruggs). The group really tears up GET UP JOHN, BLACK EYED SUSIE, PIG IN A PEN and CROSSVILLE (a new instrumental), with amazing picking by Cody Kilby (guitar), Skaggs (mandolin) and Bobby Hicks and Andy Leftwich (fiddles). Three newer songs—SIMPLE LIFE, CAT’S IN THE CRADLE and SOMEWHERE NICE FOREVER—are beautifully done and work well with the other material. Fine versions of ON A LONESOME NIGHT, WHY DID YOU WANDER, I HEARD MY MOTHER CALL MY NAME IN PRAYER and HOW MOUNTAIN GIRLS CAN LOVE. A very impressive album, highly recommended.
