Album Review

Absolute quality has been a hallmark of Blue Highway's canon, and Marbletown doesn't lower the standard one bit. Starting with the title cut (by Mark Knopfler), the album is a series of peaks, from the aching "Tears Fell On Missouri," about a woman knowing her husband has left her and their children, to "Three Finger Jack," with its stunning mandolin and banjo work from Jason Burleson. By now these guys know how to make all the pieces fit together perfectly, and they do. They are all consummate musicians — and they're gifted writers too, well worth every accolade that's been heaped on them over the last decade. Some pieces do stand out, even amidst the high quality: "Quarter Moon," with its lovely harmonies, is a gem, while "Wild Bill" offers a delicious melody for the story of Wild Bill Hickock. Once again, Blue Highway have delivered.

Customer Reviews

Outstanding Music!!!!

"Marbletown" defines the way bluegrass should be played! Blue Highway clearly knows how to make some superb music. The vocals on every song are simply amazing, and the picking these guys can do is beyond belief! I've been a Rob Ickes fan for years, and Wayne Taylor is my favorite singer in all of music!

Songs like "Marbletown" "Nothing But A Whippoorwill" and "Endless Train" get my blood pumping! Slower songs like "Tears Fell On Missouri" and "Quarter Moon" make me appreciate bluegrass more and more.

I want to thank these guys for being my favorite band of all time, and hope they continue to bring us enjoyable music for years to come. And when it is my time to die: "Lay me down in Marbletown, I hope that it don't rain."
