Following up an excellent first record, this Pittsburgh, Pa. area group is back with another fine disc of hard-core straight traditional Bluegrass. This time around the band is augmented by the wonderful fiddling of guest Michael Cleveland who adds to an even sharper, fuller sound than heard on the previous CD. The song selection is super, with a handful of well played standards like I’M GONNA SETTLE DOWN, MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS, ASLEEP IN THE BRINY DEEP and a rousing version of LITTLE PINK that kicks off the album. As good or even better are two superb a cappella songs, wonderfully done: HEAVEN WAS THERE and the unusual BABYLON IS FALLEN. Bob and Karen Artis are key members of this band, with Bernie Cunningham (guitar) and Keith Beaver (banjo) also sharing vocal duties. RECOMMENDED.
