13 songs nicely done in straight Bluegrass fashion by this new band that includes Matt Leadbetter (dobro), Stuart Wyrick (banjo) and Mike Ramsey (mandolin)—(the other two names are obscured in the artistic but somewhat hard to read packaging). This album is unusual in its choice of songs—while many (if not most) Bluegrass artists include one or two gospel songs on their albums, this record is pretty well split with 5 gospel cuts and 8 secular pieces: Nothing really wrong with that, but it may be a little jarring to some to hear LIVING WATER followed up by THE BLUES CLUB. The gospel tracks may be the strongest material on this CD, with the unaccompanied LIVING WATER a fine, top-notch performance, and definitely our favorite on the album. WHEELS is another good, fast paced sacred piece, not to be confused with the Dan Tyminski or Mike Auldridge songs. This band won first prize at one of the SPGMA contests, and we think includes a couple of former members of the band New Road. A good release by a solid 5-member band on which there are guest spots by Ron Stewart (fiddle), Steve Gulley and Dale Perry.
