RICKY SKAGGS 'Solo-Songs My Dad Loved'

  • $13.50


Skaggs plays all the instruments and provides all the singing parts on this fine collection of old-time and early country songs that he learned from his dad Hobert. In all cases the arrangements are laid back, simple but appropriate and always tasteful. He uses a variety of stringed instruments including fiddle, mandolin, mandocello, dobro and even fretless 5-string banjo in turning out excellent versions of songs like BRANDED WHEREVER I GO, FOGGY RIVER, LITTLE MAGGIE, SINNER YOU BETTER GET READY, GREEN PASTURES IN THE SKY and GOD HOLDS THE FUTURE IN HIS HANDS. If there’s one minor complaint it’s that the type in the 8-page foldout of notes is pretty difficult to read (there are words to all the songs). Otherwise, a really nice record.
