This CD features is a smorgasbord of some of my favorite songs, including a couple gospel bluegrass songs, two or three pseudo-gospel songs, some hard driving banjo instrumentals, some original banjo and guitar instrumentals, some “hard-core” bluegrass and some “progessive” bluegrass. What can I say? I love the sound of a good 5-string banjo and a good guitar…. And singing. So there is lots of that stuff featured here. There’s also lots of three-part harmony featured on several of the songs. As usual, Don Richmond, the recording engineer at Howlin’ Dog Recording in Alamosa, Colorado, does a brilliant and inspired job of recording and mixing. He himself is a fabulous musician and he plays bass throughout the CD and adds the high harmony on song 12. It is a real pleasure to work with this excellent musician and human being. My younger sister, Karen Fricke, has always had a beautiful voice. On this CD, I roped her into singing lead on song 7 and harmony vocals on songs 1 and 12. Hang in there, sis, we’ll be rich and famous someday!? Maybe by the time we’re dead? Maybe posthumously?
