This is a well paced album that kicks off with some catchy guitar licks and the dynamic singing of Tim Sands on an up-tempo song that reminds those of us who are of the male persuasion, "Don't Leave Her Lonely Too Long."
My favorites from the 14 selections on this album are "Paul's Breakdown," an original instrumental by guitar player, Tim Sands; "Hold On To God," a gospel song written by Dwight Yoakam; "Hickory Wind," a nice rendition of the Bob Buchanan/Gram Parsons song recorded years ago by Emmylou Harris; "Buffalo River Home," a bluegrass arrangement of a song written by John Hiatt; "Tennessee," a nice arrangement of the traditional classic; "Skyline Drive," an original instrumental by mandolin player, Charlie Wagoner... Well, you get the idea. This album is packed with good material.
The group on this recording consists of Tim Harrison on bass and baritone; Tim Sands on guitar and lead vocals; Roger Stamper on fiddle; Mark Thomas on banjo and high tenor; Charlie Wagoner on mandolin.
The sound quality is exceptional, thanks to the fine engineering, recording and mixing of Van Gallman at Old House Recording Studio in Dobson, North Carolina. His talent combined with the consistently strong vocals of Tim Sands will have you listening to "...all points in between" time and time again.
This one is a keeper.
