We had not previously heard of this 19-year old California gal, but if she stays within the Bluegrass genre we will all probably hear quite a bit more from her. In this album that is wonderfully produced by Frank Solivan (of the US Navy "Country Current" band), Ms. Grim shines
through with a strong, true voice that indicates she is totally at home in a Bluegrass setting. The Maryland based Patuxent label has surrounded
Ms. Grim with some stellar pickers including Mike
Munford and Bill Emerson on banjo, Mike Auldridge on dobro, John Miller (guitar), Solivan on mandolin and harmony vocals, and the always amazing Michael Cleveland on fiddle (he seems to appear on every Patuxent CD these days!). The 12 songs are well selected, with Ms. Grim doing a stand out job on I STILL MISS SOMEONE, IF I NEEDED YOU, SHE'S MORE TO BE PITTIED, her own LOOK FOR ME, and two Hazel Dickens songs. Particularly strong are rousing versions of HAND IN HAND WITH JESUS and HE TOOK YOUR PLACE. A superb recording that we highly recommend.
