I have had a tape of this for years but just had to buy it when it got re- released on CD as I'd worn the tape out.
I was lucky enough to see Steve, Emmy Lou Harris and The Del McCourry Band when they came to London to promote this and it was one of my favourite concerts ever and I have seen a few!
I'm not really a full time country or bluegrass fan, I just know classs when I hear it. Steve set out to write a bunch of songs that would be played every night somewhere in the world, long after he'd shuffled off. Well personally I think he may well have achieved it. I certainly have played this album at least once a month ever since it came out. It's in my all time top 10 and I have thosands of records in most genres.
The playing and recording is top notch, the songs are top notch and so is this review.
So a big thumbs up then!
