Bluegrass zoals het hoort en ook door de echte liefhebber wordt verwacht. Vern Williams is met zijn uitzonderlijke tenorstem een grote naam in het bluegrass wereldje.

This is classic, hard core bluegrass featuring hair-raising, paint-peeling, barn-burning vocals by one of the greatest tenor singers in the history of Bluegrass Music. This is the real stuff, not for the faint of heart. Bluegrass music the way it was meant to be played!
Vern Williams is one of the legends of Bluegrass music. From his first recordings with his partner Ray Parks for Starday Records in the 1960's through these recordings with his own band in the 1980's there is no one who embodies the essence of Bluegrass Music as much as Vern Williams. This is the album everyone has been waiting for. Live Recordings!

There aren’t enough good things that can be said about Mr. Vern Williams and his impact within the historical context of California bluegrass; Vern IS California bluegrass history when it comes down to it…The sheer strut and power of the music produced by Vern and this 70s-80s era band is captured well on this collection…Then and now, bluegrassers everywhere (especially California ‘grassers) have been inspired to aim for Vern’s higher-than-high tenor, that unmistakable traditional style, and his near-perfect phrasing.”
