Darin Aldridge/Brooke Justice: A New Standard of Excellence
You guys remember how I posted a review of the Darin Aldridge/Brooke Justice project “I’ll Go With You” some time back? I said they were the best thing since sliced bread and more. I know some of you might have thought, “Well, Old Dr. B is just a nice guy, and hopes to help some North Carolina kids.”
Well folks, here it is. Breaking news from Bluegrass Unlimited, Feb 2009, page 47. By the way, BU is the toughest critic in the business. You can count on them for honesty. They have told it like it is for many years. Don’t send them an average project to review unless you want your feelings hurt. And to be 100% certain you understand, this passage is from them, not me. I quote,
“With “I’ll Go With You,” Darin Aldridge and Brooke Justice (recently married in December) have created a magnificent magnum opus that establishes new standards of excellence for bluegrass gospel music. This is a must acquisition for any serious music collection.”
There you have it, and Bluegrass Unlimited out of Warrenton, Virginia, (http://www.bluegrassmusic.com) is the final word on the subject. The full review is in their Feb 2009 issue.
The CD is available from the artists at:
or from the label at www.pinecastle.com
To give you Dr. B’s stamp of authenticity, every serious bluegrass musician in N.C. knew this day was coming for these guys; all we were uncertain of was the timing. When I found my BU in the mailbox late last night, I knew their day was here. From all of us not only in N.C., but the world wide bluegrass community, we send our highest and most heartfelt congratulations. Well done, kids.
