The Remingtons consists of three music veterans that you wouldn't necessarily expect to find doing country. Jimmy Griffin was an original member of early 70s saccharine pop group Bread. Richard Mainegra and Rick Yancey go back to Cymarron, a group from the same era that had a top-20 hit with "Rings." TThe group keeps structure and musical backing simple throughout the crystalline production, leaving lots of space for guitar, pedal steel, banjo, fiddle, mandolin, and Hammond-style organ. The pick of the crop is "Eternally Blue," a song featuring a soaring melody driven by some innovative acoustic guitar/pedal steel interplay. There's nothing here that will move mountains, but for fans of the Chris Hillman/Desert Rose Band school of harmony-rich country pop, Blue Frontier is for you.
