Editorial Reviews

Rural Rhythm Records is proud to release the new album by multi award winning Bluegrass Super Group the LONESOME RIVER BAND titled NO TURNING BACK . Just last year LRB celebrated 25 years as one of the most popular and influential acts in Bluegrass Music ! They have not looked back since the release of their breakout album, Carrying The Tradition , in 1991, which included current LRB band leader, Sammy Shelor, as well as, Dan Tyminski, Ronnie Bowman and, LRB founder, Tim Austin. Over the past 25 years the LONESOME RIVER BAND career has been filled with a multitude of awards and recognitions including numerous awards by the IBMA and SPGBMA for Song of the Year, Album of the Year, Bluegrass Vocal Group of the Year and Bluegrass Band of the Year. Through changes in vocalists and rhythm sections, the constant in the wildly popular LRB sound has been Sammy Shelor s insistent, driving banjo style which has won him Banjo Player of the Year awards by the IBMA 4 years in a row, (1995, 1996, 1997 and 1998). Them Blues is the first single from the award winning LONESOME RIVER BAND S 12th album and contains current band members: Sammy Shelor (banjo), Brandon Rickman (guitar, vocals), Mike Hartgrove (fiddle), Andy Ball (mandolin, vocals), and Mike Anglin (bass). The new album, NO TURNING BACK proves again that after over 25 years in Bluegrass Music they still remain one of the most admired and influential acts in the genre!

By James Moulton on January 10, 2009
Format: Audio CD
This veteran group really comes on strong as they start out with a bluesy number, "Them Blues". These guys play as a unit, there are no guest musicians, and it sounds like it was recorded live.
This group is full of tradition, but their playing and excellence in recording with some effects gives them somewhat more of an acoustic country band sound, but they can play bluegrass riffs with the best.
"Dime Store Rings" is an excellent uptempo ballad with great lyrics and a a real cohesive sound. Their instrument playing is original and will get ya movin'. Their vocals are real tight and emotive, plus original sounding too. "Wires and Wood" is a tremendous song, both vocally and instrumentally. This is a simple, but very rich sounding recording. Overall, real warm sounding.
"Not There Yet" is an excellent uptempo ballad written by guitarist Brandon Rickman and someone else. I love the excellent hooks and the way it blends music with lyrics.
Each song I hear, I love this group more and there are a lot of great groups out there today ,such as Blue Highway, Mountain Heart and Carrie Hassler and Hard Rain.
"Lonesome River Band" is Brandon Rickman - guitar, vocal/ Andy Ball - mandolin, piano,vocal/ Sammy Shelar - banjo and vocal /Mike Anglin-bass and vocal and Mike Hartgrove - fiddle.
"Darkness Wept" is one of the most touching songs that I have ever heard of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.
"Struttin to Ferrum" is an instrumental jam song. These guys are a real joy to listen to. Brandon finally erupts on the guitar and gives us a great bluegrass guitar solo. Once again, these guys are a real tight band.

This band of young players from Virginia originally formed in 1983 but has experienced a few personnel changes over the years. A major change occurred in 2001. When I reviewed LRB's 2002 release "Window of Time," that included a new, debut lineup of Sammy Shelor (banjo), Brandon Rickman (guitar), Jeff Parker (mandolin), Mike Hartgrove (fiddle) and Irl Hees (bass). Jumping ahead six years to 2008, it's nice to see Lonesome River Band's line-up still includes Shelor, Rickman, and Hartgrove. The band's cohesion is immediately apparent in the music. Parker and Hees apparently have moved on, and their replacements include Andy Ball (mandolin, piano) and Mike Anglin (bass). All but Hartgrove provide vocals, and it would've been nice if this CD's jacket differentiated on the vocals between the songs. Presumably it's still Rickman who sings most of the lead vocals. Rickman also plays a major hand in the songwriting for the band, and "No Turning Back" includes four composition that he co-penned.

This quintet has been heralded as one of the band's best configurations. Their vocals are full of power and intensity. Instrumentally, the fivesome are master raconteurs fluent in the string language of bluegrass. I've always enjoyed their impressive, crisp playing. Together, they convey plenty of unique spark, verve and flair. The band is known for keeping their bluegrass snappy and energetic, but they can also deliver more melancholic moments with tunes like Larry Cordle's "Wire and Wood" or Rickman's "We Couldn't Tell."

On their twelfth album, Lonesome River Band continues to pick in high gear. Their music imparts a rhythmic intensity that is both tastefully rendered and remarkably powerful. Since 1983, these boys have managed to carve out their very own niche in the contemporary bluegrass market. (Joe Ross, Roseburg, Or.)

I have been looking forward to a Brandon Rickman-led version of "Them Blues" on CD, and now I have it. This guy can sing! Some of the other songs are country-flavored, but most hold true to the kind of bluegrass the LRB has pioneered, thanks to the driving, rolling banjo. Sammy Shelor is the king of banjo. (In my opinion, that is!)

Pros: Hard-driving, festival-oriented bluegrass music.
Great singers and musicians.

Cons: The choice of songs isn't in general as good as some other LRB releases.
