Ann & Phil Case - The Springtime of Life
W e love the sound of old-time duet singing, and this couple from Ohio do a splendid job on songs from the likes of the Carter Family and Ola Belle Reed. The graceful harmonies are backed with skillful but appealingly uncluttered accompaniment on guitar, banjo, and mandolin. This lovely collection of songs from home, heart, and Heaven includes "Only Remembered", "You've Been a Friend to Me," "High on a Mountain," "Fifty Miles of Elbow Room," ten more.
