No Depression - 9-10/00, pp.107-8

Product Description:

Personnel includes: Hazel Dickens (vocals); Russ Barenburg (guitar); Allen Shelton (banjo); Jerry Douglas (dobro); Roy Huskey, Jr. (bass).
Includes liner notes by Charles Wolfe.
Few singers in the last 30 years evoke the essence of bluegrass twang as does Hazel Dickens. And this platter from 1987 is one of her strongest, with a fine band backing her and a superior batch of songs. Listening to weepers like "A Few Old Memories" and "Do Memories Haunt You," it is clear just where a host of recent alt-country artists such as Freakwater and Sally Timms got their inspiration. ~ Tim Sheridan
