Please rate this album:

James' second album again takes it's title from one of Bill Monroe's tunes, but unlike The Old Mountaineer, it features a mix of instrumentals and some vocal numbers, mostly drawn from the Flatt & Scruggs / Lester Flatt catalogue.

In live recordings of the CMB's from this period, James can sometimes be heard singing imitations of Johnny Cash and Willie Nelson, and judging by Let Those Brown Eyes Smile Again, Backing To Birmingham, Head Over Heels and Preachin' Prayin' Singin' he does a pretty good approximation to Lester Flatt too.

The fiddle instrumentals, including Bill Monroe's Southern Flavor and Old Dangerfield; Bob Wills(?) Swing Miss Molly and Ken Baker's Windy City Rag are also all top notch.
