amg review
This is another excellent effort from King, an outstanding traditional bluegrass vocalist who is heavily influenced by country singers like George Jones, Buck Owens and Stonewall Jackson. King is not a songwriter, but he usually manages to dig up a batch of strong but obscure songs. This time is no exception, as he revives Jackson's "Big House on the Corner," and Leon Payne's "They'll Never Take Her Love From Me," and songs written or made famous by Ernest Tubb, Johnnie and Jack, Moon Mullican, Bill Monroe, and the Country Gentlemen. Bed by the Window is the first of King's CDs to feature his road band. Kevin Prater (mandolin), Adam Poindexter (banjo) and Jason Moore (bass) play on all of the tracks. Most of the fiddle work was done by sessioneer Bobby Hicks, but fiddler Owen Saunders joined the band in time to play on two tracks, and subsequently joined the band on the road. ~ Ben O'Connor, Rovi
