This is the way music should be..Clear, beautiful, and real. These guys were keeping it real, and sing beautifully. The vocal arrangements and strings and the songs work together to create something unimaginably terrific. This is a great study of American bluegrass.

I discovered this album when I was going to school at San Jose State COLLEGE in 1965. Yes, before it was a university! I had listened to lstened to a fair amount of Bluegrass (including the Dillards and of course the fabulous Greenbriar Boys). But, this particular album just blew me away!! This was the period when Eddie Adcock and John Duffey were perfecting their instrumental styles, and all three were perfecting their supernal vocal harmonies. Every song both intrumental and vocal are just excellent. To my way of thinking, the quintessential bluegrass album. I know you've heard this before, BUT if you are going to have only one bluegrass album Make it be this one! I'm serious.... BEST BLUEGRASS ALBUM EVER!!!!

I knew the members of this group (slightly) in the 1960s and attended many of their concerts. They have a hauntingly beautiful sound that hasn't been surpassed in the intervening years. I listen to all of their records, now CDs, and never grow tired of them. I listen to a lot of other groups, too, but none of the others evoke the same awe.

These boys do it right. Love their arrangements and classic vocals. Straight-ahead, energy driven, and soulful. Every cut is a favorite.
