It is ironic—as well as sad—that a small number of excellent bluegrass musicians just happened to be in the right place but at the wrong time. We are talking about names like Ted Lundy, Buzz Busby and Porter Church—all great but little known musicians. You can add another name to that list: Larry Rice. Older brother of the illustrious Tony Rice, he had a fair measure of success musically, playing mandolin and singing harmony with J.D. Crowe in one of Crowe’s earliest and best bands ever. In a 5-year stint with Crowe, Larry Rice became a fairly well known name; but Crowe traveled little in those days, and for the most part, only dedicated insiders had a chance to note Rice’s talents.

Rice was an outstanding mandolin picker, a fact not recognized by many today, because he was known more for his singing and songwriting. His singing style was also very distinctive, as can be heard on this 16-track collection that really does include the very best of Rice’s recorded work. But what is probably most intriguing about his music is the songs he wrote, and they generally reflect a sardonic, often cynical view of life and the difficulties it can bring to those who for one reason or another, are down-and-out. Listen to "Plastic People Town," "Unemployment Line," "Tinsel Town," "Never Meant to Be," and a wonderful version of Gordon Lightfoot’s "Rainy Day People." Other gems on this album include Arthur Hancock’s lovely "Sunday Silence" and Jim Buchanan’s fine "Aunt Mary's Spring." Also contributing in a major way is the stellar guitar work of Tony Rice—he is present on 11 of the 16 tracks here and is in top form.
