Playing Time - 38:34 -- It's got to be frustrating for Doyle Lawson to experience so many personnel changes in his band, Quicksilver. However, the Tennessean always rises to the challenges posed to maintain a road-seasoned professional touring bluegrass ensemble. The band won IBMA's Vocal Group of the Year Award for six consecutive years (2001-2006), and Doyle's artistic excellence was honored in 2006 with a National Endowment for the Arts National Heritage Fellowship. Releasing many gospel and secular albums since the band initially formed in 1979, Lawson's latest effort falls in the latter category.

Besides singing lead and harmony vocals, Lawson plays mandolin, guitar and dojo on this project. Quicksilver is Jamie Dailey (guitar, vocals), Darren Beachley (bass, vocals), Terry Baucom (banjo), and Mike Hartgrove (fiddle). Jimmy Edmonds plays bass and some understated fiddle on "Whatever Happened To Us" (that some may recall was done years ago by George Jones and Tammy Wynette). Instrumentally, each song on this album has been given its own unique string treatment. Offering a varied set of both driving bluegrass and acoustic country selections, you'll hear a rawboned arrangement of just two guitars and two vocalists on "Can You Hear Me Now." Perhaps it was a subconscious voice that led them to such a lean treatment for the haunting song (written by Dixie & Tom T. Hall with Johnny Williams). I don't think an additional full-length "Retro 1938" rendition was needed right afterwards to recreate the scratchy sound of an old 78rpm record. Sound and recording quality have come a long way during the last century, and a little snippet of that effect creates a nice mood but why overdo it? The album's only instrumental, a fiery "Tulsa Turn-A-Round," was written by Lawson.

Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver have had a sound and quality that remains constant no matter who is in the band. This is another CD that is classic Doyle. The collection of songs is not my favorite, but the quality is what you'd expect from him.

This is one of his best for all-around Bluegrass. He has always been in the top of his class for Bluegrass Gospel, but this one is less gospel and more traditional bluegrass. Good stuff!

My husband and I just love Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver. We try to see them whenever they are appearing in our area. We enjoy their music so much, and this album did not disappoint.
