Dave Leatherman has a weathered, soulful voice that is somewhat reminiscent of Dave Evans, and if you like rough hewn, tough, down home Bluegrass this is a disc to listen to. Leatherman is backed by a group that includes Ronnie McCoury (Mand.), Charlie Cushman (banjo), Deanie Richardson (fiddle), Mike Bub (bass) and Jeff White and Bill Tennyson (guitars) with dobro picker Ferrell Stowe on a few tracks—the instrumental accompaniment is excellent. Dave has also enlisted Dale Ann Bradley and Patty Loveless to add harmony parts to a couple of songs, but strangely these are not really effective: Leatherman’s singing is almost impossible to harmonize with due to the unpredictable twists and turns that he employs in his vocals. His versions of CHISELED IN STONE and HEMLOCKS & PRIMROSES are really powerful, and he gives almost equally strong performances on GEORGIA BOUND, THE FIRST STEP TO HEAVEN, LONESOME & DRY AS A BONE, MONTANA COWBOY and DRUNKEN DRIVER. Most hard core traditional Bluegrass fans will really like this—recommended. $ 13.50
