The brief notes to this excellent new CD explain that the 11 tunes here were leftover cuts from the bandÕs 2004 recording ÒReap What You SowÓ. Well, they certainly are not inferior to the music on that disc, and they make up another fine collection very similar to their previous two releases. ThereÕs no singing on this album, just solid old-time flavored string band music driven along nicely by the excellent fiddling of Stephen ÒSammyÓ Lind. Though the group definitely has an old time sound, it includes 5-string banjo by P.T. Grover in a Scruggs style rather than clawhammerÑhis playing is solid & driving, but never obtrusive. The groupÕs style is reminiscent of the late Virginia fiddler John AshbyÑitÕs not a coincidence that 3 of the tunes here are credited to Ashby: MARY WANTS A LOVER, JAYBIRD DIED WITH THE WHOOPING COUGH, and SLEEPY LOU. Other tunes are credited to John Salyer, Stripling Brothers, Ernie Carpenter and Rafe Stefanini among others. Fine music, and well recommended. MUDDY CREEK, BIDDY, ICY MOUNTAIN, JEFF CITY, etc
