DAVE RICE AND HIS OLD TIME CRONIES 'Ned Went A'Fishin'

  • $13.50


The Ohio-based Dave Rice has an excellent old-time album here, one that is not only very nicely played but one that is distinctively different. While there have been dozens of old-time records that include all sorts of combinations of fiddle(s), banjo(s) and guitar, this disc features the harmonica (Rice) mainly in conjunction with the fiddle, but with other instruments as well, provided by 7 of his friends. The sound is very much akin to that of Dr. Humphrey Bate, the Arkansas Barefoot Boys and the Murphy Brothers’ Harp Band of 1920s “Golden Age” fame. Rice has made a great choice of tunes—23 in all—which are all appropriate and well done. Some of the most effective tunes are DOWN FALL OF PARIS, BANK HEAD BLUES, CISCO HARMONICA BLUES, FORD ONE-STEP, AUSTIN BREAKDOWN and TAKE YOUR FOOT OUT OF THE MUD, but all are nice. A very enjoyable and satisfying record which we recommend to old time fans.
