Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

Carolina Chocolate Drops

Dona Got A Ramblin' Mind

2007-06-03

Carolina Chocolate Drops: Dona Got A Ramblin’ Mind (Music Maker) Prior to hearing this, my encounters with traditional American string music were few and far between. However, this latest run in proved to be most delightful, as the Chocolate Drops keep their arrangements concise, honest, and true to form. If you’re familiar with the likes of people like Dr. Ralph Stanley (I believe that is his name), this should be a treat. Banjo, fiddle, and singing from people who’ve probably experienced a little more than a 13-year old L.A. suburban daughter/sister/niece of so-and-so has. These folks honor their elders and keep a true American tradition alive. Reviewed by Trevor Edmonds (May 2007) (All tracks clean)
