IT'S GOOD TO HAVE ANOTHER CHANCE TO MENTION THIS WONDERFUL RECORDING WHICH WAS ORIGINALLY RECORDED IN 1964-65 and issued the first time a few years later on the short-lived Together label. It was available for a number of years as a Sugar Hill LP, but this CD re-issue should give it new life. The Hillmen consisted of Chris Hillman, Vern & Rex Gosdin and Don Parmley, all of whom have made significant names for themselves in music. Like the Country Gentlemen in the east, this California group experimented successfully with folk material, as can be heard here on their lovely renditions of RANGER'S COMMAND, FARE THEE WELL, WHEN THE SHIP COMES IN, COPPER KETTLE (previously unissued), BARBARA ALLEN, BROWN MOUNTAIN LIGHT and FAIR & TENDER LADIES. Good arrangements & trios. Recommended. BLUE GRASS CHOPPER, ROLL ON MUDDY RIVER, WHEEL HOSS, etc.
