No question Rob has released this CD for traditional bluegrass banjo fans! There is definitely some flamethrowing here - Blackjack screams off the runway and threatens to leave good ol' Del hanging onto the guitar rhythm for dear life -- "Afterburner" might be a better term. But there's lots of GREAT medium-paced, soulful music here too.

The songs will be known to traditional banjo fans: Earl, Don Reno, JD, Sonny, Walter Hensley, one of Del's compositions, and a fine Larry Perkins interpretation of a song very popular in Canada. Very, very satisfying! Don't be puzzled by the titles Caracas, Jericho and Siempre. You'll like 'em. None of these performances are overdone warhorses, not even the one you might suspect is worn out...

There are surprises here too. Bobby Osborne guests on a few tunes, both singing and playing mandolin. Sonny sings and plays a bit of twin banjo. But, believe it or not, ROBBIE SINGS TOO. And not just any old jam tune. He sings a warm, convincing and complex low harmony part with Bobby and Sonny on We Could (You and I). That's worth the price of admission, right there.
