With 14 songs brimming with hot licks, classic songcraft, even some boundary-stretching electric guitar, and once again, Del McCoury's matchless vocal delivery, the Del McCoury Band moves up the gold bar standard of bluegrass yet another notch with Del McCoury Still Sings Bluegrass. "What I like in a record is variety of moods, of tempos," Del says. "I consider myself traditional at heart, but I don't have any boundaries. I'm just a guy that likes to sing and play music. Whatever strikes me to do I'll do it. Without wrecking things." The album features his fine band (Ronnie McCoury on mandolin, Rob McCoury on banjo, Jason Carter on fiddle, Alan Bartran on bass) with a guest electric guitar from his grandson, Heaven McCoury, on a kicking cover of Shawn Camp's tune "Hot Wired." With Del McCoury Still Sings Bluegrass - a title that echoes his 1968 debut on Arhoolie Records, Del McCoury Sings Bluegrass - Del and the boys bring home yet another stellar collection of traditional bluegrass music.
