It features both Skaggs and Hornsby as vocalists and instrumentalists, with Skaggs’ Kentucky Thunder band as the primary rhythm section. The music includes mostly new compositions from the pair, plus reworked versions of Hornsby hits – including a minor key rendition of Mandolin Rain. The CD is spirited and stylistically diverse, though the most talked-about track, a up tempo bluegrass cut of Rick James’ Super Freak, may not amuse after the first listen.
Audio samples are available in the iTunes Music Store.
