Traditional bluegrass vocalist James King's second set is as good as the first. Tenor singer Dudley Connell returns to supply great high harmony vocals. Highlights of this set include a strong, soulful version of West Virginia songwriter Hazel Dickens' A Few Old Memories, and Sharon Higgins' Crazy Heart. He's as likely to pick an old country song as a bluegrass chestnut, as shown by the Ernest Tubb and George Jones songs included here. Even Vince Gill's "When I Call Your Name" is made to sound like an old bluegrass classic.
