Mastershield Records has released a second volume from Bill Yates where he reprises some of the classic songs from The Country Gentlemen. Bill was a member of the band for 20 years, and his first Country Gentlemen tribute CD was warmly received by their legions of fans.
Bill plays bass and sings (just as he did with the Gents), with assistance from Darren Beachley on guitar and vocals, Kevin Church on banjo and vocals, Dave Propst on mandolin and vocals, Mark Clifton on resonator guitar, Mike Phipps on vocals, and Terry Pearson and Dave MacGlashan on bass.
The songs will all be familiar to long-time followers of The Country Gentlemen.
