Please rate this album:

This is a fairly mundane 'tribute', with fairly competent instrumentation and occasional off-key vocals... Still I've heard far worse albums, and their hearts are in the right place.

From the liner notes it says that the band were based in southwestern Virginia. David Lambeth was orignally from Ashboro, North Carolina; Johnny Hutto from Headland, Alabama & had played with Curly Fox & Texas Ruby on the Grand Ol' Opry in 1961-2; Larry Reed was born in Syracuse, New York and had a spell with Charlie Monroe; Greg Reed (presumably Larry's father) was also born in Syracuse; finally William Goad was from Botetout County, Va.

The band recorded further albums including the gospel 'Standing In The Shadows' LP (King Bluegrass KB-541) 1975 and 'Blue Ridge Mountain Music' (King Bluegrass KB-556) 1976.
