    Nice sampler of some wonderful songs full of heartbreak

    I am the kind of person who really likes music samplers with various artists. In our hectic world today, the clock only has so many hours each day for listening to music. It is with open arms that I welcome products like Sugar Hill's second installment in their Cool, Blue compilation series. As one of the premier bluegrass music labels, Sugar Hill features some of the best artists around. For a nice tasting of some wonderful songs full of heartbreak, pick up this album. You certainly won't be sorry. In fact, hearing all these sad and blue, "you've been untrue" songs actually make me happy. You'd think that "love-gone-bad" and "so-lonely-I'm-mad" songs would have the opposite effect, but those that know bluegrass music realize that it's highly emotional music that often makes you feel better about your own cards that you've been dealt in life. It was Bill Monroe who once referred to bluegrass music as heartfelt music, and this album includes four songs written by the father of this genre (one of the fastest growing in popularity at present). This album includes 18 wonderful cuts of bluegrass from artists like Larry Cordle, Doyle Lawson, Nashville Bluegrass Band, Boone Creek, Alan Bibey, Don Rigsby, Hot Rize, Kathy Kallick, Laurie Lewis, Seldom Scene, Lonesome River Band, Ricky Skaggs, Tony Rice, Osborne Brothers, Jerry Douglas, Peter Rowan, Jim Mills, Tim and Mollie O'Brien, Mike Auldridge. It makes me want to run out and pick up every single individual album that has been sampled here. (Joe Ross, staff writer, Bluegrass Now)
