John Cohen is a member of the NEW LOST CITY RAMBLERS but on this cd he has gone "solo", with a little help from his friends of course... David Grisman (mandolin, autoharp, etc...), Sue Draheim (fiddle), and Jody Stecher (fiddle, guitar, etc...).

The NEW LOST CITY RAMBLERS have many great recordings, but if you're not already familiar with them I would suggest you start with this cd simply because this is the most crisply and perfectly recorded cd that any member of them has released. Although maybe someone could point to the other Acoustic Disc release, RETROGRASS, as a counter argument. I wouldn't argue with that actually, but I prefer the music on this cd more. The clear, ringing tone of the banjo on this cd is beautiful.

The mountain-banjo-style tracks are particularly great, such as CHILLY WINDS, CHINQUAPIN PIE, and TWIN SISTERS. Some of my favorites of the vocally-accompanied songs would be DANVILLE GIRL, WHICH SIDE ARE YOU ON?, and DARK HOLLER.
