Channeling the bluegrass sound of 1950s Flatt & Scruggs, this album, produced
by dobro god Jerry Douglas, abounds with great traditional interpretations of
the F&S songbook. Also featuring Shawn Camp on guitar/lead vocals, Tim O’Brien
on mandolin, Charlie Cushman on banjo and Johnny Warren on the fiddle.

1 – (2:49) Big Black Train* Mid-up-tempo, great intro to the album.
2 – (2:12) Don’t Let Your Deal Go Down* Fine version of the classic.
3 – (2:59) I’ll Go Stepping Too* Fun stomp, great vocals, solid banjo.
4 – (2:06) Shuckin’ The Corn* Fine mid-up picking by Cushman.
5 – (2:36) Till The End Of The World Rolls ‘Round* Solid version, fine.
6 – (2:22) Dig A Hole In The Meadow* Bouncy mid-tempo, swings.
7 – (3:43) Some Old Day* Douglas’s dobro sounds just like Josh Graves!
8 – (2:10) I Won’t Be Hanging Around* Mid-tempo, punch, fine.
9 – (2:37) I Don’t Care Anymore Decent Tompall Glazer waltz, OK.
10 – (2:47) On My Mind Solid, unexciting take on the Flatt classic.
11 – (2:27) You’re Not A Drop In The Bucket* Excellent, guitar body slaps!
12 – (3:15) Dim Lights, Thick Smoke Solid, workmanlike, decent rendition.
13 – (2:40) The Wandering Boy* Mid-up-tempo, A.P. Carter original, good.
14 – (2:31) Who Will Sing For Me* Beautiful gospel, sweet vocals & harmonies.
