Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Despite her seven consecutive IBMA "Female Vocalist of the Year" trophies, Rhonda Vincent continues to strive for growth. Good Thing Going, co-produced with her brother Darrin Vincent (of Dailey and Vincent) and features her crack band, the Rage, and the singer/mandolinist offers five original or co-written songs. Of those, the earnest wedding ballad "I Give All My Love to You" (rendered as a duet with Russell Moore of IIIrd Tyme Out) is bound to garner the most attention. But more interesting is "I’m Leavin’," a superficially sassy declaration of romantic discontent with a whistle-blowing fiddle underscoring Vincent’s threatened departure. She deftly varies her program with a jazzy swing number ("World’s Biggest Fool"), on which her band gets to solo with snappy instrumental breaks, and an especially hymn-like rendition of the traditional lament "The Water is Wide," featuring winsome vocals from country-pop darling Keith Urban, whose presence should garner her at least a cursory listen from beyond her bluegrass brethren. Still, Vincent knows where her Martha White biscuits are buttered, and her core audience will undoubtedly enjoy cover nods to both bluegrass kings Jim and Jesse ("Just One of a Kind") and the late Jimmy Martin ("Hit Parade of Love"), as well as her own fan salute, "Bluegrass Saturday Night." In recounting life on the road in this hard-charging bit of autobiography, Vincent takes her place alongside Flatt & Scruggs and all the resilient bluegrass greats who came before her. --Alanna Nash

4.0 out of 5 stars Vincent has a "Good Thing Going" with new Disc January 8, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Prime Cuts: Water Is Wide (Duet with Keith Urban), I Give All My Love to You (Duet with Russell Moore) , I Will See You Again

Vincent with her array of sturdy bluegrass-tilted offerings has given vitality to this traditional genre. With "Good Thing Going" she sets herself out with another even loftier goal: bluegrass is not just your standard fare of picking-bowing-plucking-chopping exercise. Rather, bluegrass CDs can be rich with versatility encompassing a plethora of emotions from the brooding laments of heartbreak to the incessant ecstasy of burgeoning love and commitment. Backed by the Rage (Vincent's own road band), fiddle star Stuart Duncan and flat-picking guitar ace Bryan Sutton, this 12-song collection is impeccably well-played and the production (from brother Darrin Vincent) is state of the art. Also, this time Vincent does not just take the singing spotlight. Rather, her mandolin-picking expertise is on extravagant display. And so is her songwriting prowess, as the lady of bluegrass showcases 5 of her own solo compositions.

Most captivating about his set of recordings is when Vincent croons a ballad. Here the ballads are aplenty with "I Give All Love To You" being the prime. A gentle ode to the exultation of eternal love, this melodic ballad is sung as a duet with IIIrd Tyme's Russell Moore. Also interesting is Vincent's make-over of the Celtic chesnut "The Water is Wide." With its mournful fiddling, the gentle strumming of the guitar and country heartthrob Keith Urban's slightly husky duet vocals, "The Water is Wide" has been transformed into an exquisite affair that emanates from the recesses of the heart.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another excellent disc! January 27, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I have been a Rhonda Vincent fan for a few years , I have even met her a couple of times now and her new music never disappoints. This CD is great from front to back and sideways. I have always been partial to songs about getting out of here, so "I'm Leavin'" is kind of my favorite, along with "Water is Wide" (featuring Keith Urban), it is so beautiful and haunting. "Just One of a Kind" has a great groove. "I Gotta Start Somewhere" is another melancoly song about trying to forget someone. There are some great upbeat songs too, like "Hit Parade of Love" and "Who's Cryin' Baby". "Bluegrass Saturday Night" is a self portrait and a lot of fun. Rhonda Vincent's vocals soar and the Ragers play hard on this record. This batch of songs are especially great because they are so relatable to everyday life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Continuing to evolve January 11, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Rhonda Vincent refuses to be pigeon holed by releasing Bluegrass or Country CDs. She gives us a lively mix, heavy on Bluegrass with elements of Nashville Country, resulting in a sound that has a real appeal to both groups. Good Thing Going is a pleasing mix of songs showcasing her considerable talent. The listener is never allowed to get complacent with a quick changes in pace from I Gotta Start Somewhere to Who's Crying Baby or the excellent lyrics of World's Biggest Fool. Bluegrass Saturday Night is a joy and wraps the sessions with great fun and a sold nod to her history.
This is an excellent CD and well worth buying.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Mix January 11, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Rhonda has done it again! I love the country/bluegrass mix. Her last cd was still great but not as good as previous recordings...this one puts her back up on top!

I absolutely love Hit Parade of Love and Bluegrass Saturday night!! The more I listen to this cd, the better it gets!! I didn't think that was possible!!

Trust me, you won't be disappointed!!

Review by Christian Scalise

"Good Thing Going"

Bluegrass sensation; the very talented singer/songwriter/musician Rhonda Vincent has a new album to offer her fans!! Her latest release "Good Thing Going" features five new original songs either written or co-written by Rhonda!!

What a great way to start off the album with the song "I'm Leavin.'" It's an up-tempo and sassy "kiss off" song that features some great pickin'!! The song showcases Rhonda's exceptional vocal talents. "World's Biggest Fool" has a "western swing" feel to it and the story behind the song will make you chuckle!! What a uniquely clever song!!

On the ballad, "I Give All My Love To You" Rhonda sings of a beautiful connection that is shared between two people. The song features a phenomenal duet with Russell Moore. His vocals add a very special touch to this heartfelt tune!! This song is sure to be a classic for many years to come!! Rhonda's voice sounds so angelic and pure on this tune.

"Good Thing Going" is another up-tempo tune that is somewhat autobiographical to Rhonda Vincent's own life. She wrote the song after speaking to her husband on the phone while out on the road. She decided that things were going great in her life and she wanted to write about it. She chose to use "Good Thing Going" as the albums title.

"Scorn Of A Lover" starts off with the harmonic sounds of the mandolin followed by the chilling sounds of the fiddle. The song tells a story of a heartbroken individual whose relationship with their significant other has gone astray. Rhonda paints the picture of this song and takes you to that time and place where it came from. This song is definitely one of the gems on the album!!
