Album Description:

Album release date: 10/27/23

One-time farmhand, professional boxer, high school custodian, sheet-metal mechanic and drag-car racer, Eddie Adcock has done it all. And that’s not to mention his illustrious career as a banjoist, guitarist, mandolinist, singer and songwriter. Born in 1938 in Scottsville, Virginia and inducted into the Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame in 1996, Eddie Adcock has had a long and eventful career in music.

Early on, Adcock supported key figures like Smokey Graves, Mac Wiseman, Bill Harrell, Buzz Busby and Bill Monroe before finding partnership (in music and life) with his wife, guitarist, singer and songwriter Martha Hearon Adcock. Talk of the Town was one of several projects Eddie and Martha worked on together, recording two albums with the group for CMH in 1987 and 1988 respectively.

This self-titled debut from the group is not only notable for its excellent musicianship, creative arrangements and varied selection of songs, but also because it spotlights several great women in bluegrass as supporting and featured instrumentalists. Martha Hearon Adcock, Missy Raines, Susie Gott and Jody Maphis join together with Eddie to deliver a whirlwind collection of songs sure to please any listener of American roots music.

Working across several styles and equipped with an expert-level ensemble, Eddie’s skills as an arranger shine here. Across western swing (“I’m Walkin’”), rockabilly (“Baby, Let’s Play House”), jump blues (“Saturday Night Fish Fry”), folk ballads (“A Rose on the Riverbank”), bluegrass barnburners (“The Hotter She Burns”), and even a Creedence Clearwater Revival cover (“Up Around the Bend”), the whole ensemble shows their skill and adaptability, crafting an album with plenty of ups, downs and everything in between. Additionally, originals like “Renaissance Man” and “Eddie’s Matchbox Blues” showcase these excellent instrumentalists as accomplished soloists and accompanists.

All captured in the pristine quality and high-grade production one can expect from a CMH recording of its time, this album is a crucial addition to both Adcock’s and CMH’s catalogue. Available on digital for the first time, we recommend giving it a spin and hearing what the Talk of the town has to say.
