It's always exciting to see and hear a new Bluegrass band that you almost know will be one of the forces in the music in the immediate future. A year or so ago this group was little more than a rumor to the average Bluegrass fan, but now they are here with a powerful new album that will be welcomed by their fans. Their credentials are impeccable: all three leaders of this band --Ronnie Bowman, Kenny Smith and Don Rigsby -- were one-time members of the famed LONESOME RIVER BAND. This 13 song album is a good mix of the old and the new as far as material goes. Some of the songs on the CD create a somewhat melancholy tone, but that is not a negative here --there is enough variety to keep the record well balanced. BOOTLEG JOHN and LOST HIGHWAY join COAL MINING MAN (introduced by Ralph Stanley) as good representatives of the kind of material that these three artists all grew up with. And Don Rigsby gives an absolutely stunning performance of DANNY BOY -- I can't recall ever hearing a better treatment of that song. The musicians that help out with superb backing include Scott Vestal, Barry Bales, Ron Stewart, Stuart Duncan, and Justin Moses --but it is the songs and the singing that steal the show. We could go on, but let's just say that this is an outstanding and landmark disc that we HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
