In addition to guest musicians like Emmylou Harris, Tim O'Brien and Gillian Welch, lyricist Robert Hunter co-wrote each of these 13 tracks with Lauderdale, lending the album a backporch feel missing from much of today's country music. Even the idiosyncratic country sounds of Donna the Buffalo on "Upside Down" fit nicely on this collection of old timey country songs. Highlights include "High Timberline," "Crazy Peg and Darby Doyle" and "Head for the Sun." HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
The songs use traditional bluegrass instrumentation for the most part. The arrangements are very simple, making the focal point the singing. Most tracks have a nice old-timey sound. The final track with Donna the Buffalo diverges from this sound, but is still fun.
An excellent album from start to finish.
