Dear Mr. Feldmann:
I have enclosed a review based on the CD that you sent to me.
The impact of this extraordinary CD just takes your breath away. I have been an Uncle Dave (The Dixie Dewdrop) fan since the late 50s. Every record I had by him was worn completely out. I just couldn't get enough!! There were some shows that showed the old time footage, & that is where it really rocked.
Your project was superb. Everything about it was first class: the singing, & the beautiful instrumental work that pulsated throughout the project.
All of the recordings I have heard of Uncle Dave suggests that he was having a good time. I definitely got that feeling while I was listening to this project. The personnel on this project are in the "Who's Who of bluegrass music". It doesn't get any better than this. This project was entirely too short. I had to play this CD 3 times in a row to fully appreciate the lyrics & the music for this project. You can't just hear this CD once & be satisfied. The song selection was also first rate. I played the entire CD & received many requests to play many of the songs over again. This CD will be my companion for many weeks to come.
Thank you for sharing your fine project with us.
P.S. - Thank you for the great liner notes. They were a wonderful history lesson.
