This West Coast band has been impressive in its prior releases, and this new album is no let down. It’s really top-flight contemporary Bluegrass with fine singing by Chris Stuart and banjo player Janet Beazley—who are also both good songwriters. Ivan Rosenberg helps with some strong & tasteful dobro work. While none of the songs here may be as strong as some of those on the band’s previous discs, it’s all good stuff nevertheless. Ms. Beazley contributes fine vocals on THE JEALOUS CROW and TAKE ME INTO YOUR HEART. Stuart’s title song is excellent as is the duet on DOLLAR BILL BLUES and BUTTERMILK PIE—with clawhammer banjo—makes for a nice change of pace. If this band was based in the East they’d probably be much better known—they certainly deserve to be. Recommended.
