Here's another of those really nice old-time records that seem to be coming out more and more often these days. Tricia Spencer and Howard Rains combine to present a really enjoyable 17-track collection of old fiddle tunes, most fairly well known. Ms. Spencer --from Kansas --plays a very good fiddle, and Texan Howard Rains backs her either on guitar or on 2nd fiddle (7 of the tunes are played that way). Although both musicians are from the Midwest, many of the tunes they play were learned from sources in North Carolina and Virginia, such as Fred Cockerham, Dan Tate, E.C. Ball and Gordon Freeman.. All the tunes have something to offer, but particularly intriguing is GREEN ROCKY ROAD, a vocal duet that features neat instrumental backing of banjo-uke and guitar. About half the pieces feature vocals --nicely sung. ROUSTABOUT, DARBY'S RAM, PRETTY POLLY, WEDDING DRESS, BROADUS, DOWN THE ROAD, RED ROCKING CHAIR, HOP HIGH, etc.
