Product Description & Reviews
Don Stover ~ Things In Life As a teenager in West Virginia in 1945, Stover heard Earl Scruggs on the radio and immediately began to decipher Scruggs's revolutionary three-finger banjo style. However, Stover never abandoned the traditional clawhammer (strummed) style he learned from his mother, and eventually he became one of the few bluegrass musicians to truly master both concepts. After 20 years with the Lilly Brothers, Stover recorded this 1972 album, his first as a solo artist, with a young David Grisman on mandolin. Things in Life offers classic Stover originals, such as the poignant title track and the instrumental "Rockwood Deer Chase," along with fiddle tunes reworked for banjo and a series of charming old-time numbers Stover learned from his parents. Charlie Monroe's "Valley of Peace" features strong vocal harmonies from Stover and Dave Dillon, although Stover's versatile and innovative banjo techniques always get top billing. --Marc Greilsamer
