Album Review

Contemporary bluegrass at its best, this album contains masterful playing, inspired singing, and memorable songwriting. Blue Highway turn in an affecting vocal and instrumental performance on guitarist Tim Stafford's haunting "The Rounder," as well as ripping through a cover of Merle Haggard's "Huntsville" and showcasing their gospel side on a soul-stirring arrangement of the traditional "God Moves in a Windstorm." Shawn Lane's lonesome tenor is pleasing, as are the harmony blends and the lead vocals of the rest of the band. Ace Dobro player Rob Ickes — voted 1996 Dobro Player of the Year by the International Bluegrass Music Awards — shines throughout, rounding out this band's second effort and making it more than a worthwhile choice.

Customer Reviews


If you are going to buy a Blue Highway record this is the one to start with. It is by far the best they have put out. Every single song on this record is simply a great song. Horse shoe bend, The Rounder, Between the Rows, and Clear Cut are a few highlights if a few had to be chosen. Blue Highway is one of the greatest bluegrass bands ever to play. Do yourself a favor and just buy this record!
