The Grass Cats, a North Carolina band long associated with the original music of Russell Johnson, have announced the imminent release of a new CD. This will be their 8th album for New Time Records.
The Mountains My Baby And Me contains 12 tracks, recorded with Johnson on mandolin, Rick Lafleur on banjo, Alan Mullen on guitar, Tim Woodall on bass, and Chris Hill on fiddle.
Most of the songs are band originals, with a couple of interesting covers. Bob Dylan’s Blowin’ In The Wind, Bruce Springsteen’s Hungry Heart, and The Embers’ What You Do To Me all get the Grass Cats treatment.
Look for The Mountains My Baby And Me on September 10.
