5.0 out of 5 stars One great CD February 23, 2010
Format:Audio CD
For all of you bluegrass traditionalist, you probably will not like parts of this CD. Josh mixes bluegrass and country and adds drums and steel guitar to the mix. And boy did it mix well. This is one great CD. Worth the money if you like good music. You can hear the influence of Tony Rice, Randy Kohrs, and probably Sam Bush in this CD. The guitar work and vocals are superb. Just what you expect from Josh Williams. The musicians on this CD are some of the best around including Tony Rice, Randy Kohrs, and steel guitar super picker Doug Jernigen. Some of the highlights of the CD are the Buck Owens song Bakersfield, and Stealing Away. Some hot picking going on. There is not a bad song here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great bluegrass with a touch of country. July 20, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Josh Williams' voice is one you can recognize right away. The rich tone gives it a "once heard not forgotten" quality. Combine that with the fact that he's a terrific picker and it makes a quite nice collection of songs. There is a nice mix of tunes here. Kodak 1955 is probably my favorite due to the lyrics related to the memories in old photos. "We'll Burn That Bridge" is an excellent bluegrass tune getting a lot of play on satellite radio lately. The bluegrass take on "Streets of Bakersfield" makes it a real toe tapper. Josh Williams is one talented young man. I'm looking forward to future CDs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent original Bluegrass recording July 11, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Josh Williams is a former guitarist for the Rage, Rhonda Vincents group. I just reviewed another CD recently for another former Rager, Audie Blaylock. She must produce good musicians, because they are both very good CDs. The title Down Home is a good description of the CD. It is very down homey with sweet bluegrass instruments and songs about family and life.

Josh is a very good guitarist and plays almost all guitar here, both rhythm and lead. His leads really are very good and melodic, His mentor Tony Rice plays on one song "Blue Railroad Train". Josh does not write any of the songs , but he uses first class material, mostly great story songs . The Title track is a beautiful ballad. The music is so sweet backing up his vocals.

Some of the musicians that Williams uses are Mickey Harris on Bass, Randy Kohrs on Dobro, Jason Carter and others on fiddle.
Rhonda Vincent sings backup on a couple of songs. Aaron Mcdaris plays banjo, Stuart Duncan does some of the fiddle. Tony Creasman does percussion. These songs plain move or they will move you, like a good bluegrass ballad. Some of the songs have a pedal steel on them. Josh has a very good voice and knows how to take hold of a song. "Streets Of Bakersfield" is an upbeat bluegrass song that the musicians really take it up a notch. "Dream Of Me" is a ballad that has some good hooks and a really nice chorus with great harmonies.

"We'll Burn That Bridge" is an upbeat song with more good singing and playing. I am really surprised at the good collection of songs that Williams has found for this project. And his musicians are really good, he uses 2 or 3 banjo players, so you get some great banjo, but some different styles too. "Blue Water' is another killer ballad, that really makes you listen.
