Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Rick Anderson

For old, we have the legendary Bill Emerson, banjo virtuoso and charter member of the proto-newgrass Country Gentleman; for young, we have the very fine singer and guitarist Mark Newton, as well as the equally fine mandolinist Emory Lester and bassist Bob Goff. Newton has a remarkably flexible voice -- compare his full-throated mountain roar on "Long Gone Baby" a Neil Diamond song, believe it or not to the gentler, higher-pitched tones he brings to bear on Larry McPeak's "The Vow." There are two Jimmy Martin covers, one a typical novelty tune "Home Run Man" and the other a bitter kiss-off...

There are two Jimmy Martin covers, one a typical novelty tune "Home Run Man" and the other a bitter kiss-off "Don't Cry to Me"; the latter finds Emory Lester cross-picking a la Jesse McReynolds. The group's sound is strictly traditional, but there's nothing stuffy or academic about it. Great songs, tight harmonies, and virtuosic playing make this disc a delight from beginning to end.
