The Gathering by Earl Pickens & Family

Earl Pickens’ bluegrass cover of the US2’s Joshua Tree blew me away because it _wasn’t_ a novelty CD but a faithful cover of the music. They stayed true to the music when they needed to, they let the string band instruments shine when it was appropriate. These guys had a great ear for the music. Their follow up CD, Gathering, is equally impressive both in terms of creating an energetic, good natured, New Grass and writing original tunes. Highlights for me included “The Broom,” “Storm That Never Was” and “Running To Stand Still.”
