After many years with the find Bluegrass Cardinals, David Parmley set out on a solo career and this excellent album may well serve as a transition to a more commercial career in country music. However, if Parmley is on his way to leaving Bluegrass behind you would not know it from this recording. It's not only almost pure bluegrass but some of the nicest singing & playing we've heard recently. Apart from a couple of well done standards(PRETTY POLLY and IF I LOSE)the material is more contemporary but it fits Parmley's voice perfectly and makes great listening. There is also superb work by a fine cast of supporting musicians: sweet fiddling by Stuart Duncan and great banjo work by Craig Smith remind us just how good these stellar musicians are. Also heard to fine advantage are Hershel Sizemore, Adam Steffey, Randy Graham, Dan Tyminski, Don Rigsby & Dale Perry. The songs are well crafted pieces by Carl Jackson, Larry Cordle & Jimmy Rushing and Parmley gives them all outstanding treatment. Especially effective are HOMETOWN GIRL, GRANDPA GET YOUR GUITAR, DESPERATELY, ALABAMA RAIN and POOR MAN'S PARADISE. There's a touch of piano & drums on 2 or 3 cuts but it's tastefully done and shouldn't stop any bluegrass fan from enjoying some fine music. Well recommended. GOIN' HOME, THE SILVER GHOST, LOUISIANA RED DIRT HIGHWAY.
