As soon as we put this CD in the player we thought we were listening to a
recording by the Lonesome River Band --not surprising, since Mr. Slaughter was
a member of that group (as well as Lost & Found, Lou Reid, and others). Though
he now apparently lives in Alabama, Slaughter is a well respected member of that
Virginia / North Carolina group of musicians responsible for that "Lonesome
River" sound. Those who have followed Bluegrass for a while will recognize
him also as a good songwriter and singer. Along with several of his own songs,
he uses material from other popular writers of that area including Craig Market,
Mark Brinkman and David Coffey, plus his wife Heather (who also shares in the
singing). In recording the 14 songs he has employed a group of outstanding
musicians including Shawn Lane, Rob Ickes, Ron Stewart, Ronald Inscore and
banjo picker Joey Cox (whose picking is reminiscent of Sam Shelor's). This is
an excellent record for those who like this popular style of hard driving music that
seems to please both the traditionalist & contemporary fan.
