DICK SMITH-MIKE O'REILLY BAND 'Life's Road'

  • $13.50


This is the newest of 3 or 4 records by a solid Bluegrass band that features some good veteran musicians. Banjo player Dick Smith will be remembered for his prior work with Del McCoury and the Country Gentlemen. Canadian Ray Legere is a top-flight all-around Bluegrass musician who plays mandolin & fiddle here and Ernie Sykes, the bass player did a long stint with the Bluegrass Cardinals among others. Mike O’Reilly, also from Canada, is a solid singer but will be best known for his song writing --he is the composer of all 14 of the songs here, all well-written pieces some of which could well be picked up by other artists (BE QUIET WHEN WILLIE WALKS BY, A NIGHTINGALE SINGS). The band’s presentation is relaxed, tasteful and thoroughly professional—excellent traditional Bluegrass.
