There is no “spacegrass”, or “jamgrass” on this record. This CD is traditional bluegrass, played in the styles of Flatt & Scruggs, The Stanley Brothers, & Bill Monroe. It sounds like great care was taken to get the old sounds out of a newer studio. The instruments sound like they were recorded in a room with egg carton sound dampening on the walls, and the harmonies sound like harmonies used to, when the whole band gathered around one microphone and let it fly. This is the way our music sounded before Ricky Skaggs, and Alison Krauss got ahold of it. Even the dobro on “Some Old Day”sounds like ol’ Josh Graves played it hisself. Bill Junior has given us a great collection of old songs, played with great care & attention to detail, and I enjoyed every song. I highly recommend it for fans of the old stuff. Thank you Bill Junior & the Montana Rangers. You can hear clips from this CD at Lonesome Pine Records.
I listened in too while Curtis was playing this CD. I loved it. Can’t believe how much it sounds like Bill Monroe. Nice job out of this Helena talent. I hope we get to see these guys over our way at one of our MRBA events. It will be fun to sing and play with them.
