ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“Long Way Home”, the newest CD from Truman’s Ridge, is another upbeat entry to Indie Bluegrass.
While maintaining the energy of their first CD, “Tru-Blue”, this newest CD shows a greater range of tempo and mood. The harmonies are varied, at times reminiscent of the early brother bands, and at other times showing a strong rural-gospel influence in the 3 and 4 part vocals. The lead vocals are always strong. Instrumentally the band continues to show the influence of midwestern string band and Chicago jazz and blues on their interpretation of traditional bluegrass arrangements. The rock-solid beat of the guitar and bass compliment the driving rhythm of the banjo and the compelling mandolin lead breaks. Fiddle and harmonica are also featured on some of the songs. Truman’s Ridge offers an exciting blend of the familiar and the unique.

The CD features eight original numbers by members of the band including the instrumentals “Come Christmas” and “Pruschnya”, the gospel numbers “My Savior Has Prayed For Me” and “Steppin’ Stones”, and the title track “Long Way Home”. The final three originals, “I Need The Sun To Shine”, “I Cry Alone”, and “The Girl I Dreamed Of” are fine examples of bluegrass “love” songs.

“Long Way Home” also includes covers of the classic bluegrass numbers “Long Black Veil”, “Will You Be Loving Another Man”, “You Can Have Her”, Doing My Time”, “Old Flames”, and “Walls Of Time”.

The CD rounds out the 17 selections with the band’s arrangements of three traditional numbers “Poor Wayfaring Stranger”, “Nine Pound Hammer”, and “Cold Rain and Snow”.

You will be hard pressed to find a better value in Indie Bluegrass. Purchase your copy of “Long Way Home” today.
