Description
A combination of "high lonesome" and hell-bent, the bluegrass quartet known as the Country Gentlemen were one of the linchpins of the 1970s "newgrass" revival.

"The Gents weren't interested in being a museum piece. They were striving for a distinct sound that would maintain the vitality and relevance one of the most uniquely American art forms. 'Can't You Hear Me Callin'?' is a testament to how thoroughly they succeeded…. The Gents take the title track (written by Bill Monroe) and blow the doors off it. Immediately obvious is the intensity of the band's vocal delivery, with guitarist Charlie Waller … leading the way and John Duffey (mandolin) casting his banshee tenor into the stratosphere. Throw in Eddie Adcock's use of Dobro licks on the banjo and you have something both innovative and frightfully visceral at the same time. Other traditional sounding tracks include 'You Left Me Alone' (where Duffey defines 'thrashing' the mandolin), the standard 'Knoxville Girl', a cover of the Stanley Brothers' 'Girl Behind the Bar' (which, like the title track performance, surpasses the original) and 'Katy Dear', an ancient piece from the public domain that is given a stately, old-time treatment with ornamented vocals…. Contains the essential highlights of the Country Gentlemen's brilliant effort to straddle the line between the past and present."—Pop Matters
