    A brisk, varied and entertaining little package. [Oct 2002, p.126]

    Like most homage platters, the affair is only as strong as its weakest moments. [Nov 2002, p.113]
  3. Hitting the Ground is flat-out clever, cool, and cocky.
  4. None of these tracks are all that interesting beyond a listen or two-- even the best ones get tired fast.

    His choked yelp and hootenanny backing suggest fun should be had. It isn't. [#10, p.116]

    Mostly due to the different guest artists and their distinct styles, each song plays differently. Amazing musicians perform on this album, Mostly due to the different guest artists and their distinct styles, each song plays differently. Amazing musicians perform on this album, and is worth looking into. Doesn't flow as well as I had hoped. key tracks: Darlin' Allison, Hitting The Ground Full Review »
