Pittsburgh-based Mac Martin has provided a bastion of top quality traditional Bluegrass in that city for almost 50 years now. He cut his first record—an LP for the obscure Gateway label—in 1963. There followed a County LP, 3 excellent LP’s for Rural Rhythm and this 1977 recording that originally came out on Paul Gerry’s Revonah label. More recent recordings have come out on the Old Homestead label. With original Dixie Traveler members Mike Carson (fiddle) and Billy Bryant (banjo), and Martin’s fine vocals and guitar playing, this is excellent, straight-ahead traditional Bluegrass, influenced by Lester Flatt and other early legends of the music. A good selection of songs is highlighted by fine versions of Charlie Monroe’s JOY BELLS and IS SHE PRAYING THERE.
