     Bobby Atkins might very well have been Bill Monroe’s
‘best’ traditional banjo player.  Here he is with a brand new
‘traditional’ bluegrass-country album.  Recorded at the D&K Studios
in Madison, North Carolina, this is the epitome of what ‘traditional’
bluegrass should sound like.  Beautiful Katie Griffin is first the
master of vocal harmony, and though her fiddle doesn’t quite have the
personality it needs, it’s not far from it.  Dicky Minor is on guitar
and bass, with Ty Bullins on lead guitar. For me it’s a step back in
time to hear what the music sounded like when it was young.  Bobby
Atkins is not only a super-great banjo player, he is also a helping
hand.  I loved this CD.  I believe Katie’s best is “Scotland” and “Faded
Love.” Imagine that, some Bob Wills on an old-time bluegrass album. 
And Bobby Atkins. He never fails to deliver, but I especially liked him
on “I Still Miss Someone” both vocally and banjo.  This CD is dedicated
in loving memory of Amy Randall Dix, certainly an appropriate song for
that memorial.  Good going to Bobby and Katie for bringing the very 
best of the past alive for me, and for anyone that listens to this fine
CD. We don’t get ‘traditional’ bluegrass so much anymore, off this one
goes to the Rural Roots Music Commission.
