How Blue Was My Grass? Steve Earle & The Del McCoury Band
Sylvie Simmons, MOJO, March 1999
DRAMATICALLY DIFFERENT from 1997s El Corazon, this excellent album is, in essence, a tribute to the late Father of Bluegrass Bill Monroe, performed with Monroes former banjo player Del McCoury and his band and featuring 14 new Earle compositions that sound like theyve been around for donkeys years. If youre a Steve Earle fan and you like bluegrass, guaranteed this record will make you come.
