Minimally (but attractively) packaged in a simple cardboard cover with no notes, this is a very intriguing arrival, and one that we have enjoyed playing repeatedly. The five person group is apparently from the Lenoir area of western North Carolina, and the two ladies who provide the vocals here (Anya Hinkle and Stacy Claude) share the same singing style as heard in other old-time groups from the Asheville area of North Carolina—only in this case the vocals seem much more natural and less affected. Though everything about the packaging says “old-Time”(and the gospel classic WHEN I CAN READ MY TITLE CLEAR is definitely in that category) this is really a Bluegrass album (with old time singing). There is no banjo, but there is dobro (Aaron Balance) and Bryan Clendenin’s mandolin picking and chopping gives a full Bluegrass feeling to most of the cuts, which include the Stanley’s classic IF THAT’S THE WAY YOU FEEL. The songs WINDY MOUNTAIN and TENNESSEE are not the Lonesome Pine Fiddlers and Jimmy Martin songs that you first expect, but along with the group’s other originals like YELLOW MOUNTAIN, GO AWAY WITH ME and GOOD HARD RAIN they work out well. It adds up nicely to a different but effective sound. (Note that there are only 8 songs & tunes (hence the lower price than most regular CDs).
