Old-time fiddler Jim Childress has written every one of the 16 tunes on this excellent CD. Seldom do you find an album with as many as two or three really good original compositions, but on this CD every single tune is good, really good or great—certainly a rare happening (the only other such album I can think of was another great old-time fiddle disc by Garry Harrison a few years ago—now out of print unfortunately). There’s nothing weak here, and Childress gets superb energetic but tasteful backing from Pete & Ellen Vigour (banjo & mandolin) and Mark Beall on bass. The group together (known as Uncle Henry’s Favorites) had a good CD out several years ago (they are from Central Virginia). There’s a good variety in the tunes here, with some of the finest being LAUREL FORK, ROAD TO MALVERN, LONG WAY HOME, LEO’S LULLABY and the title tune. A superb album, highly recommended
