"Solid Bluegrass"

"...The first song on the CD is "Each Minute Seems A Millions Years," and it sets the tone of solid old-school bluegrass picking and harmony singing, a direct line back to the old homeplace. Other highlights include the McIntosh penned "Brand New Man," the instrumental "Bending The Strings," and the harmony infused gospel a cappella number, "Deeper Than The Stain." - Bluegrass Unlimited Magazine


"Rambler's Call CD Review"

'Another Day, Another Dollar' gets the album off to a rousing, yet atavistic start, and things just get better from there. The band pulls from sources as diverse as Don Reno ('Charlotte Breakdown') to Primitve Quartet ('No Longer An Orphan') to Tony Senn and Tommy Stough whose 'Boston Jail' is one of the album's most pleasant surprises. The title track comes from Boys From Indiana alumnus Aubrey Holt, whose contributions as a topnotch songwriter remain underappreciated. Joe's former bandmate, Gerald Evans, checks in with two most appropriately retro compositions, 'The Old Rocking Chair' and 'Don't You Want To Go Home.' " - Bluegrass Unlimited Magazine


"Bluegrass for Breakfast/ WCXZ"

Thanks for the new CD I put it in the player as soon as it came in and WOW. This is the music us Appalachian Americans love down here in the East TN. Hills. I will start spinning tomorrow on the show. Thanks

"Nashville Public Radio"

You all have hit the high-lonesome ball out of the park and into the next county with Rambler’s Call. This is truly the way God and Bill Monroe intended bluegrass to be played—with power, passion and pizzazz. The pickin’ is hard-drivin’ and the singin’ tough-edged. It just doesn’t get any better than this. I especially enjoyed “Boston Jail,” “Farmer’s Blues,” “The Old Rockin’ Chair” and “Don’t You Want to Go Home.”

Thanks again for the superlative work. I’ll be doing my best to get the word out in Nashville and in our other syndicated locations.
