Bill Emerson and Sweet Dixie  Eclipse Recording/Album Reviews

Overall Comments

I really respect Bill Emerson as a Banjo player and he is one of my idols. He has a very clean technique and tone. Quite frankly this is one of Bill's finest CDs/Albums to date. The CD is primarily an instrumental CD, but there are 2 standout vocal tracks: "Jesse James" and "Don't Come Around" which was penned by his new fiddle player Jenny Leigh Obert. (Jenny has a very bright future as a fiddle player in Bluegrass.) Overall, the musicianship is outstanding. Bill has assembled an excellent group of musicians in "Sweet Dixie". Some of the standout tracks are: New San Juan, Coast to Coast, Chilly Winds, Don't Come Around, Ride it Out, and No Steering, No Brakes, just to name a few. The entire CD is great!

Overall Rating: 10
