5.0 out of 5 stars Bliss via Bluegrass April 6, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I've heard Larry play many venues. I would honestly say he is the best guitarist available, be it bluegrass, jazz, funk, or even reggae. You would be doing yourself a grave injustice not to discover the amazing music of such talented artists.

5.0 out of 5 stars Some of the hardest bluegrass ever recorded July 13, 2009
Format:Audio CD
I have to start this review by pointing out that Larry Keel may be my favorite flatpicker around. He has the most distinctive style of any flatpicker since Clarence White, and he plays more forcefully than anybody else in the genre. Furthermore, this album ranks among his best. The sound here is very close to, well, The Sound, meaning that the album presents Keel at his most aggressive. The cover of John Hartford's All Fall Down has an energy more reminiscent of punk than bluegrass. Let's be clear-- I hate punk, and Larry Keel doesn't play punk, but there is no other way I can find to describe how aggressive some of the playing on this album is. This is NOT your grandfather's bluegrass, and after you hear Keel's playing on this and The Sound, Tony Rice will sound like a balladeer. This is not to disparage Tony Rice. I remain a devoted fan of Mr. Rice. However, Keel is just a wild-man. To be clear, this is bluegrass with some serious rough edges. Keel isn't the cleanest player, and his voice is more gravelly than anyone except Tom Waits, but if you want to hear bluegrass pushed to the edge, you need to hear this album.

I should also point out that this is one of three albums released under the name of The Larry Keel Experience. This one and The Sound are quite similar in their energy levels. The third, Miles & Miles, isn't quite as aggressive, but it is still brilliant. Also, there are two bands that include Larry Keel worth noting: Magraw Gap, and Big Daddy Bluegrass Band. The Magraw Gap album is absolutely essential, and Keel fans will not want to miss the Big Daddy Bluegrass Band album either.

Further listening: The Waybacks, Yonder Mountain String Band, Leftover Salmon, Acoustic Syndicate...
