Scotty was the scion of the famous Stoneman family. He was also one of the bad boys of bluegrass, known for some outrageous behavior and a strong love of drink. The latter cut his life short. Scotty passed through this life quickly and intensely like a shooting star. This live recording of Scotty with the Kentucky Colonels is a bit rough on the sound side, but infinitely enjoyable to listen to anyway. It is probably the best showcase of Scotty's work on CD. The fiddle tunes represented here display the fire and intensity of his playing. The vocal tracks like "Once a Day" and "A Wound Time Can't Erase" reveal a rich, soulful voice I wish we could have heard more of. Of course the CD features the enormous talents of the White brothers and the Colonels. Fans of bluegrass fiddle have missed out on a pillar of the artform until they have aquainted themselves with the playing of Stoneman. This CD is a great forum to do so.
