This West Coast bluegrass outfit is fronted by Bill Bryson and Herb Pedersen, well-respected country and roots artists from Los Angeles. And their West Coast edge is displayed proudly, as evidenced on "It Hurts to Know," apenned by Red Allen and Tommy Sutton, and the Louvin Brothers tune "When I Stop Dreaming." The standard "Please Come Back, Sweetheart" and the band's newer songs, "Hold On" and "Move On," all have a strong traditional magic that defines the continuous appeal of the Laurel Canyon Ramblers. Breathtaking in every way.
