The notes to this interesting collection of fiddle tunes point out that Mr. Deering was highly influenced by the great fiddler Kenny Baker, and it was DeeringÕs intention to come up with a dozen or so original tunes such as those Baker recorded in the eleven or twelve LPs that he recorded on the County label over the years.Ê Curiously, Deering plays the mandolin, not the fiddle, and even more curiously,Ê the tunes on this disc really feature the fiddling of Jim Wood more than DeeringÕs mandolin.Ê So far, in a couple of plays, I could not really point to any ÒmemorableÓ tunes, but that is not to say it isnÕt good music.Ê The overall feel of the record is very nice, focusing on WoodÕs fiddle, DeeringÕs mandolin breaks, and solid guitar backup by Inge Wood.Ê Taking nothing away from WoodÕs playing, the sound is more like a middle Tennessee sound, and is not really akin to BakerÕs playing (in the way that Aubrie HaynieÕs or Blaine SprouseÕs is).Ê A good, listenable record here.ÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊ
