The acclaimed 1997 Longview debut was probably intended to be a one-time-only, lightning-in-a-bottle bluegrass vocal summit. Two and a half years later, the sextet tries to recapture the magic and succeeds beyond all expectations. What's most amazing about these 14 performances is the way the voices seamlessly mesh despite the sporadic nature of the band. This set focuses on second-generation masters such as Larry Sparks and Jimmy Martin as well as more-obscure but highly talented regional figures, but there are notable exceptions: the title track comes from the 1991 Randy Travis album of the same name and features exquisitely aching vocals from James King (lead), Dudley Connell, and Don Rigsby. Joe Mullins's high tenor hair-raisingly soars over Connell's lead on A.P. Carter's "Little Annie." And on the Stanley Brothers' "Angels Are Singing"--the actual spark that ignited the Longview fire at an impromptu 1994 jam--King, Connell, and Rigsby turn in the kind of passionate performance that must have touched them so that very first time. With Glen Duncan's fiddles and Mullins's banjo leading the way, the sublime harmonies offer just the right balance of exuberance, emotion, and taste. --Marc Greilsamer

This band is hot hot hot!!!!!!! Where the Foggy Mountian Boys meet the Bluegrass Boys.. The amazing blend of every vocal tradition in bluegrass music. The fabulous material and the glue that Joe Mullins banjo pours over the whole group keeps this CD in permanent rotation on my play list. Joe Mullins is the BOMB! When he comes in with that banjo it is as if time stops to make room. Joe is the most entertaining and interesting banjo player I have heard in a long time.

Following up on Bluegrass Daddy's comments, in addition to the great instrumental work, this CD features two of the best voices in bluegrass, James King and Dudley Connell. I have and love every Longview CD, as well as four James King. And you will find Dudley singing with Johnson Mountain Boys, who have a number of titles available. In my opinion, this group has the best vocal sounds of any group now active.

High lonesome music by a great group of great bluegrass musicians. I love this CD for its hard driving bluegrass. Get ready for the toe tapping, knee slapping, high lonesome singing. Turn the volume up and sing along. If you enjoy bluegrass music then Longview is a group you need to put into your collection. RECOMMEND
