Amazon.com

How does someone creating their first album attract such stellar guests as Vince Gill, Joan Osborne, Roger McGuinn, Bruce Hornsby, John Prine, John Hiatt, and Mary Chapin Carpenter? Well, it helps if you're a Grammy Award winner and one of Nashville's most prominent producers and guitarists. Randy Scruggs won a Grammy Award for his rendition of "Amazing Grace" on the acclaimed album Will the Circle Be Unbroken, Vol. 2. He's also produced top albums by Iris DeMent, Emmylou Harris, and Alison Krauss. On his first solo album, Scruggs concentrates on beautiful melodies and optimistic messages. The strain between art and commerce sometimes shows: The songs aimed at radio stick out like billboards in an art gallery. Overall, though, the album nicely balances sharp instrumentation and catchy, uplifting arrangements. --Michael McCall

Every song on this cd is a gem. The instrumentals are first class.Many of my favorites take part on this cd including Mary Chapin Carpenter(who sounds awesome in It's Only Love), Trish Yearwood (giving great harmony to I Wanna Be Loved), Matraca Berg, Gary Chapman, Amy Grant, John Hiatt (all singing background vocals on City Of New Orleans), Emmylou Harris & Iris Dement (Beautifully dueting on Wildwood Flower), Joan Osborne (burning it up on the Johnny Cash co written Passin' Thru), Roseanne Cash (singing a gorgeous My Secret Life). Reading the notes from Randy Scruggs one can see his love of writing and recording these songs, but even more so from the performance he and his co-horts bring to this project. There is not one bad song on this cd. If you like good country music, or just plain good heartfelt music, you can't do amy better than this recording.

"Soldiers Joy" from this CD deservedly won Best Country Instrumental Grammy for 1998. The whole album is great, with special recommendations going to "City of New Orleans" (with John Prine), "My Secret Life" (with Roseanne Cash) and "It's Only Love" (with MC Carpenter) I only wish Nashville produced more like this.

I have loved this album since it first came out and I would be hard pressed to pick a single cut that would be my favorite. It's a joy from start to finish.

My question is why hasn't he recorded another album since this one. I've done a search on here and can't find one. I remember him from the Earl Scruggs review and was impressed with his guitar playing (Earl wasn't bad at playing the guitar either but not flashy; I could always tell when he was playing guitar on the Circle album.)

Great album.

This cd covers some many areas of music that it is like listening to a radio station that plays a dozen songs in a row that all sound different and all sound great. Outstanding new versions of City of New Orleans with John Prine and Amie with Travis Tritt make the cd worth the purchase, but these two barely scratch the surface. This is my gift to my friends this year.

Although this isn't a case of the son eclipsing the father, Randy Scruggs needs no comparisons to anyone. He stands alone as a singular artist and Crown of Jewels showcases his amazing talents. With a vast array of corroborators, the effort spans the musical spectrum and is at once exhilarating and lyrical. A must have for ANY music lover.

This album contains the excellent guitar picking of one of the finest studio musicians to come from Earl's genes. A Soldiers Joy is one of the best examples of this work. This album features some of the best vocals in country music today...Rosanne Cash, Mary Chapin Carpenter,etc. Get this one.

By A Customer on August 23, 1998
Format: Audio CD
Overall, a very entertaining effort from Earl Scruggs's son. Where this album is at its best is when Scruggs explores his musical roots, such as on the traditional "A Soldier's Joy," on which he's joined by vince Gill's guitar; the Carter Family's "Wildwood Flower" (with soaring harmonies by Emmylou Harris and Iris DeMent, this may rank as the definitive version of this classic song) and his father's standard "Lonesome Rueben." Tracks featuring John Prine, Rosanne Cash and Mary-Chapin Carpenter are also enjoyable.
There are some notable low points. Scruggs' and Travis Tritt's turn on "Aimee", is merely a carbon copy of the original. "Travel On" sounds like a TV-show theme song, more appropriate for listening to when credits crawl over the screen. And, although Scruggs's "Both Sides Now" is effective, it's the fourth time he's committed it to record.
