When you sang with Joe, you had to put out. When he came into that mike he was really blasting!' --Del McCoury 'Those summer evenings on Joe's back porch in Waltham is where I learned to sing bluegrass harmony. Joe's enthusiasm for bluegrass and his love of duet singing was contagious. For me, there was no turning back. Joe had mastered the high lonesome sound of both Bill Monroe and the Louvin Brothers. He was the voice of bluegrass in New England.' --Peter Rowan 'Joe Val had one of the clearest and most distinctive tenor voices ever.' --Pete Kuykendall, Bluegrass Unlimited Diamond Joe is a collection of the most memorable performances by the legendary Joe Val, vocalist and mandolinist for New England bluegrass mainstays the Charles River Valley Boys and his own New England Bluegrass Boys.
