Recording Review

Jim & Jesse Honor the King Of Country Music (Double J Entertainment)

Jim & Jesse

By Berk Bryant

As soon as I opened this I wanted to program it but I had to settle for playing it for myself as I was a week away from show time. (Sunday Bluegrass, WFPL, Sunday night, 8:30-11).

As many of you know, I am a big Roy Acuff fan and a big Jim & Jesse fan. Put these two together and how can you miss? This CD contains the songs made famous by Acuff, the usual ones that immediately come to mind, as well as "Blues ln My Mind," "Write Me Sweetheart," "I Called and Nobody Answered," "Branded Wherever I Go," and "I'll Reap My Harvest In Heaven." An extra bonus of Oswald playing Dobro and featured on "Roll On Buddy."

It gets my vote and a lot of play on my show. Thirteen winners on this great new release by one of the top groups in bluegrass. Another great jump-start for bluegrass '95!
