Please rate this album:

Recorded at Lemco Recording Studios in Lexington, Ky, on 18th February 1973. This is another superlative album featuring Roy Lee Centers and Ricky Lee. It says a lot about how good the band were at this time, that they could knock-off such quality albums in a short space of time...

These days it'd probably take most bands more time to set up and get in tune, than it would for the CMBs to cut one of these releases!

Two singles were released from the album: Poison Love / Bill Cheatum (King Bluegrass 730412) 1973; and Gonna Paint The Town / Loving You Too Well (King Bluegrass 730846) 1973.

The album was later reissued as On And On (County 776) 1980 and was included on the excellent 4xCD box set 1971-1973 (Disc Two, tracks 23-28 and Disc Three, tracks 1-6).

(*) Lead vocal on I Wonder How The Old Folks Are At Home.
