This cd is full of great tunes. Martin's banjo picking is showcased in every song. The Step CAnyon Band is very talented. Vocals are spot on. Sir Paul McCartney sings on You Are My Best Love. Great CD!!!!!!!!

A surprise in every song! Really excellent musicianship and imaginative lyrics blending humor with sometimes a touch of melancholy.The energy and sheer enjoyment these musicians are having playing with each other rivals anything on country stations today.Steve has some other singers do his songs and they do not disappoint either. If you are a fan of Blue Grass(or think you might be) this is your CD.
