'In the Ground' by the Gibson Brothers Soars

     You know they say a picture is worth a thousand words. Well, maybe a video is worth a state of mind. This is a great review, but with all of the videos, you get a real picture of what the album is like. They really have their own sound. They are not as hot on their instruments as other bluegrass bands. The mandolin has a very mellow tone, Leigh has a unique banjo style, very melodic and he is not playing all of the time. Ted really describes the songs well, and what they are about.

    The album has songs with real deep song material in them. I can't get the melody for "Fools Hill" out of my mind. Might have to get this one. Good job Ted.
