Music News Nashville Review of Eclipse

Bill Emerson – Eclipse Chuck Dauphin, Music News Nashville

The Washington Post has called Bill Emerson a “Banjo Legend.” Hmm… that’s like saying Dolly Parton writes a fair song or is just a little bit on the cute side, or saying that gas prices have inched up just a few cents in the past year—–you know, an understatement, right?

There are a few cuts with vocal guest stars, as well.  Marshall Wilson and Lynn Morris deliver a romp through history on “Jesse James,” while Tom Adams delivers a fine vocal on “Poor Rebel Soldier,” and Jenny Obert shows off her beautiful tones on “Don’t Come Around,” where she sounds like a mountain angel.  All along the way, you’ll find nothing but the best in banjo licks from one of the best, and that’s as it should be!
