James King grew up in Carroll County, Virginia, the center of the old-time music universe, which may be why someone as young as King (born in 1958) can sound like a member of the original generation of bluegrass musicians. He worked with Ralph Stanley as guest vocalist in the late '80s, and before that worked regularly with Ted Lundy's brothers Bobby and T.J. James King's soulful voice balances the emotional gut-wrenching mountain blues of old-time music and the smoother drive of early bluegrass. This album was recorded in 1993 with members of the Johnson Mountain Boys.
