This remake of the Lost and Found classic, "Last Lonely Eagle" features Allen Millis on bass and backing vocals, and the legendary Gene Parker on banjo and backing vocals. Gene told us that day in the studio, that he hadn't recorded since 1986 and after this was over he'd more than likely never record again. He just doesn't like to record.
We figure the man is entitled since he's already recorded some of the greatest most original "in and around the pocket" banjo picking found anywhere. We are just thrilled that we got to be a part of it. Last but certainly not least joining in on fiddle is Gene Elders who has spent
the last several years touring and recording with George Strait's
Ace in the Hole band.
The loss of two of his best friends in 2006, Mike Smith and
Dempsey Young, prompted him to get in gear and finish a few ideas he had for songs. This album, titled "Somebody To Sing To", and featuring 6 of Bubba's original songs, is a collection of bluegrass, country, folk, and blues representing Bubba's life the way he wants it to be remembered.
"Somebody To Sing To" also features Sammy Shelor, Jerry Wimmer, Jimmie and Chris Blankenship, Andrew O'Conner, Mary Prillaman, and Barry Collins.
