Reviews - What do customers think about Gettin' Ready?
Strong messages of conviction & belief with confident playing, soulful singing, & refined arrangements May 6, 2006
Playing Time - 39:50 -- BlueRidge clearly understands that a successful bluegrass gospel recording needs to convey strong messages of conviction and belief. Another key component for success is confident playing, soulful singing, and refined song arrangements. "Gettin' Ready" is a triumph on all counts, and the album is first pew material. Since forming in 1997, this band has demonstrated its many capabilities. From North Carolina, mandolinist Alan Bibey had previously played with Wes Golding's Sure Fire, The New Quicksilver, and IIIrd Tyme Out. Bibey sings lead and harmony vocals on this CD, and he also wrote the up-tempo and more contemporary album closer, "The Journey I'm On." The other members of BlueRidge are Junior Sisk (guitar), Alan Johnson (fiddle, guitar), Ed Biggerstaff (bass), and Joey Cox (banjo). All but Cox provide vocal support. While Sisk and Biggerstaff are also credited with some lead vocals on certain songs, liner notes don't clearly indicate which ones. A little feedback from Bibey indicates that all the high singing is Ed (including the high lead on the medley of Working on a Building, Let Me Walk By Your Side, The Old Crossroads, and Get Down on Your Knees and Pray). Junior sings lead on every cut except "Won't They Be Surprised" and "This Journey I'm On" (the ones Bibey sings lead on), and Alan Johnson does all the bass singing. Guest Sonya Isaacs sings harmony on "Won't They Be Surprised." For a set full of elegant spirituality, BlueRidge chooses songs with thoughtful lyrics, and they present them with strong traditional flavor. There is a strong spiritual glow that radiates from their performance. (Joe Ross, staff writer, Bluegrass Now)
