Nothin’ Fancy, “Where I Come From”
Label: Mountain Fever Records
Reviewed by: Kim Walter, November 2016

Classic Bluegrass band to the core. Mix of trad BG with a few special sounds, like a civil war ballad, covers of John Prine and the Wilburne Bros and a ghostly version of “the Country Gentleman” legend. My faves: 2, 5, 8, 11, 12

1. 2:25- med/fast- traditional BG
2. 3:55- slow- soulful Civil War ballad
3. 4;05- med/fast- trad BG sound with emphasis on lyrics
4. 3:41- slow/med- waltz with eerie “country Gentleman” legend
5. 3:33- med- banjo has strong accompanying voice
6. 4:45- med- nice love story
7. 2:48- med – spiritual-nice
8. 4:20 -slow/med- nostalgic country song – sl static on recording
9. 3:46 -med- trad BG’
10. 3:47- med- trad BG with emphasis on harmony
11. 3:19 -slow/med-cover of the Wilburne Brothers- nice
12. 3:12 – med- John Prine cover with expressive banjo
