Product Notes

Here is a review.... The self-released six-song sampler CD from upstate New York's Bob Stump & the Blue Mountain Band may well be the best bargain extant in roots music. Stump (guitar, vocals, songwriter), Roy Coates (bass, harmony vocals) and Tom White (fiddle, mandolin, harmony vocals), supplemented on half the tracks by the formidable Bill Keith on banjo, Andy Bing on dobro and mandolin and Guy 'fooch'Fischetti on fiddle, go about their business with an easygoing grace, telling tales both poignant and warm-hearted, drawn as much from the ache as from the exhilaration of life on the road. After five of these, they sign off with a sprightly, Irish-tinged instrumental, "Temperance Reel," all open vistas and exuberant spirits, optimistic and purposeful, with some tasty flatpicking from Stump engaging White's empathetic fiddling in spirited dialogue. To get to this bountiful horizon, you start with a gentle, lilting country lament from the heart's loneliest hour, "Missing You," set on the road to somewhere minus the object of it's deepest yearnings. "I'm so far away from home/so far from the things worth holding on to," the fellows offer in poignant harmony, and en route Stump's vivid lyrics pinpoint the desultory, unchanging interstate landmarks compelling him to get his soul's bearings back in order, "the way I loved you, the way you loved me too." The banjo plunks out a lonesome melody, the fiddle hums low and somber, and Stump sings with a plain, downhome sincerity; he's not going to win any American Idol-like competitions, thank God, but the more you listen to him, the more you feel the simple honesty of his words. The opening theme continues and is expanded in a genial toe-tapper, "Walk With You," a vow of abiding love before and beyond the grave, with White's eager but measured mandolin solos nicely balancing energy and restraint. In what amounts to a countrified, high stepping version of "It Was A Very Good Year" titled "Pretty As a Flower," Stump offers a fond, warm chronicle of where love began and how it deepened as a couple aged, winding up with the man at 95 and anticipating seeing his beloved again in the next life. Very good years, indeed, and part of the joy of Stump's testimonial is his exuberant, between-verses flatpicking out of the Doc Watson school. On the other hand, in "Roadside Attraction," Stump and the Blue boys take a lively, wry look at the detritus of a failed romance and what becomes of the broken-hearted, while also tackling the dark theme of redemption arising in the wake of addiction and imprisonment in "Long Road Home," in which the narrator, trying to correct his destructive ways, moans, "Where's my wife and my kids?" A preacher counsels, "You got to walk that path alone at night," Andy Bing steps in with a pungent dobro solo that underscores the unsettled issues afflicting the singer; and when all join in harmony to sing-make that chant--"It's been a's been a's been a long....way...home," the challenge ahead looms ever more ominous. On the band's website Stump says he seeks to paint "the American landscape in words and music." The landscape in question is as much about inner geography as it is the lay of the land-and every bit as affecting. Anyone who has a heart will want to take this trip. -David McGee Bluegrass Express Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate the support . I hope you enjoy my new 'sampler ' CD. It showcases my original songs in a full band setting as well as duo and trio selections. I included a little flatpicking in the project for all you guitar players. With this being my first release as a solo artist I strived to connect the threads of my influences and inspiration. The gifted musicians on these tracks helped me to bring my musical visions to life. The tracks were produced by Roy Coates who also plays bass and sings harmony vocals. The songs were recorded and engineered by Tom White who also plays fiddle and mandolin. The project was recorded at Tom's studio in Middleburgh, NY. On tracks one, two and four are special guests Bill Keith (banjo), Andy Bing (dobro & mandolin) and Guy 'Fooch Fischetti' (fiddle). The roots of American country, folk, bluegrass, and even rock & roll make up the fabric of these tracks. My lyrics are sometimes impressionistic, the acoustic accompaniment seems to create an appropriate backgrdrop to my stories. I hope you like them. Your feedback and comments are always welcome, contact me and thanks again for your support. -Bob.
