  • $13.50


Mr. Murphey is known primarily as a good country songwriter, with several of his songs having been recorded repeatedly by Bluegrass artists. Happily, three of the first four cuts on the disc are among his very best songs: CAROLINA IN THE PINES, LOST RIVER, and WHAT AM I DOING HANGING AROUND—and this alone would carry this album, Murphey’s first foray into the Bluegrass genre. The 11 songs are all Murphey originals, and though the others are not as strong as the above 3 pieces, it’s all good listening, as the singer is backed up by an all-star cast of musicians that includes Andy Leftwich on fiddle, Pat Flynn (guitar), Rob Ickes (dobro), Charlie Cushman on banjo, and Ronnie McCoury sharing mandolin duties with Sam Bush. Rhonda Vincent adds a harmony vocal on CAROLINA IN THE PINES. A solid and very pleasant album.
