When it comes to a Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver release, one can always be assured of a solid, well-produced project with expert instrumentation, exciting arrangements, and classic, bone chilling harmonies. This project is no exception. His band has been known as the “school of bluegrass” with new and old members coming and going over the years. But, Doyle’s standards are high, and he consistently strives for a sound and quality that remains fast, despite the changes.

Doyle’s focus is gospel music and he sticks pretty close to the bluegrass sound that produces this particular brand of southern gospel. He picks his songs carefully, and on this project he includes songs from Corey Hensley, Carl Story, Jerry Salley, Conrad Cook, Dee Gaskin, and Thomas Porter. This band edition of Quicksilver includes Corey Hensley on guitar, Jason Leek on bass, Dale Perry on banjo, Josh Swift on resonator guitar, and Jason Barie on fiddle.

The title cut was written by guitarist Hensley who also contributes “The Hammer Of Sin.” There is a great rendition of Carl Story’s “It’s A Mighty Hard Road To Travel.” Other highlights include Lance Carpenter’s “He Will Remember Me” and the medley “Ship Of Zion”/“Is That The Old Ship Of Zion.” Fans of gospel music and of Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver will thoroughly enjoy this release.
