Norman & Nancy Blake have retired to their north Georgia home in the past two or three years, which would explain why we havenÕt heard that much from them and why their many records are gradually going out of print.Ê Their many fans will welcome this new release put out by Western Jubilee Records. There are a generous 17 tracks, with a wonderful collection of fine old time songs like LITTLE BUNCH OF ROSES, HE RAMBLED, THE WRECK ON THE C & O, GOODBYE DEAR OLD STEPSTONE, WHISTLING RUFUS and 15 MILES FROM BIRMINGHAM.Ê AndÊ of course, BlakeÕs original title song, which is a gem of piece further popularized by Tony RiceÕs version.Ê Strangely, the sound here is a little funky, with BlakeÕs voice having nowhere near the presence of his guitarÑit sounds as if the recording was done in someoneÕs living room, though the notes assure us otherwise.Ê ItÕs just pure Norman Blake and his guitar, with some vocal help from wife Nancy.Ê A nice album.ÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊ
