ÒRemembering The Carter FamilyÓ In the past there have been some ill-conceived ÒtributesÓ to old-time artists by present day musicians. We can think of several that have done no favors to past heroes such as Blind Alfred Reed, E.C. Ball, and of course Jimmie Rodgers. So it was with a bit of trepidation that we put this new disc in the player. As it turns out, we had nothing to worry about, and really we are thankful for this wonderful new release which will get a great deal of playing time here. The trio of artists who do such a lovely job here are Brandon Rickman (lead and rhythm guitar and vocals), Jenee Fleenor (lead vocals, guitar, fiddle and mandolin) and Brennan Leigh (lead and harmony vocals). Most of our readers will know of Mr. Rickman from his fine work with Lonesome River BandÑone of the top Bluegrass bands of today. The group could probably have chosen just about any dozen songs from the Carter FamilyÕs extensive and great repertoire, but the 12 that are featured here make for a superb program. And most importantly, the trio sings and plays with ultimate respect for the Carters, and yet these are not just slavish imitations: there are a few slight variations such as on the ever popular IÕM THINKING TONIGHT OF MY BLUE EYES, and of course the use of the fiddle turns out to be a nice touch. (Mark Fain is also present on acoustic bass). Some of our favorites here are BROKEN HEARTED LOVER, HELLO STRANGER, ON THE SEA OF GALILEE, LOVERÕS RETURN and DARK & STORMY WEATHERÑbut every cut is well done, with wonderful singing by the two ladies (Jennie Fleenor and Brennan Leigh) and Rickman. We donÕt know whose idea this record was, but it was a good one.Ê HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
