Product Description

The great Rose Maddox of Maddox Brothers and Rose fame.

Amazon.com

When Rose Maddox recorded her famous 1962 bluegrass album (at the insistence of Bill Monroe, no less), it marked quite a departure from the rip-roarin' honky-tonk, country-boogie, and Western swing that was the trademark of her work with the Maddox Brothers band. The success of that record pushed Maddox in a more acoustic-oriented direction, and over time she built a style of "Bakersfield bluegrass" that embraced traditional values while adding the bite of electric instruments. By the time she made these recordings in 1980, she'd perfected that blend; her vocals retained the punch of her early days, but the wilder tendencies had been reined in. Supported here by the stellar but forgotten Vern Williams--one of the greatest high-tenor harmonizers in all of bluegrass--plus supple electric guitarist Kraig Hutchens, Maddox runs through bluegrass standards along with revamped chestnuts from her Maddox Brothers days. The final nine cuts stem from a rousing 1982 all-gospel session--three months after her son Donnie's death--that drops the electric guitar and features uplifting four-part harmonies. --Marc Greilsamer

By Brandon Lane on April 20, 2005
Format: Audio CD
This is just a stunning record. Rose is in fine voice, and is backed by a crackerjack band that tears trough the repertoire in this fun, high-energy outing. This album is just full of highlights, but check out the samples of "This Old House" "Sally Let Your Bangs Hang Down" "When God Dips His Love In My Heart" and "Beautiful Bouquet" to get a good feeling of what this album is about.

Sonically, the record has an appealing "live-in-the-studio" feel, and each instrument is recorded clearly and cleanly, with good placement.

This is a very rewarding record that exudes heart and humanity.

Highly recommended.
