Mike West provides beautiful madolin and guitar work besides being the ears behind the mixing board. He is joined by members of the British delta-blues band The Hot Tamales, whose studio time happened to overlap with Stephens. Stewart Carr's slide guitar and his wife's Lesley's washboard only add to the textures of these songs.
This CD has received praised from listeners representing a wide scope of musical tastes. You don't have to be a bluegrass lover to enjoy these songs. Some will make you laugh, a few may bring a tear. Hopefully it all comes down to good music. Stephens now lives in Atlanta where he peforms regularly with bassist Will Robertson in their duo, Banjolicious.
