Product Description

John Hartford is one of the most protean, creative, and uncategorizable figures on the American music scene, and has been for well over 30 years. From the start, John has represented something much deeper and wider in our culture, and the more time has passed, the more remarkable and significant a figure he appears to be. This latest recording brings Hartford back to his roots, presenting him at his most relaxed, playing with musicians with whom he feels comfortable, in a program consisting only of original songs. Hartford and the guys in the band have a lot of fun here, and that, after all, is what Good Old Boys are supposed to do. You will, too. --Tom Piazza, from his liner notes

Beyond his best-known composition, the Glen Campbell hit "Gentle on My Mind," John Hartford's idiosyncratic, irreverent spin on traditional Southern music has continued for three decades unimpaired by commercial considerations. Since the early 1970s, his willingness to toy with convention made him a forerunner of the progressive bluegrass movement, though he's rarely credited as such. Recorded with a small group of sidemen, this collection of tongue-in-cheek originals has the spontaneity of a jam session. "Waltz of the Golden Rule," "Billy the Kid," and the bent "Watching the River Go By" are quintessential Hartford, showcasing the sophisticated goofiness that's as much his trademark as his derby hat. "The Cross-Eyed Child," a heartfelt, highly personal 10-minute memoir/elegy of Hartford's long friendship with Bill Monroe, captures Monroe's pained youth and enduring genius in a way that even the most learned musicologist couldn't match. --Rich Kienzle
