ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"The songs are faithfully rendered here by four extremely talented musicians who employ a variety of instruments and arrangements that culminate in a thoroughly pleasing musical experience."

- Bluegrass Unlimited

"The Deseret String Band holds audiences in a mesmerizing whirlwind of mandolin, guitar, banjo, and fiddle strings. It is joyful, lively music with personality, often with a sense of humor, played with intensity...."

- Salt Lake Tribune

"If there is a single fiber of pioneer in your body, the Deseret String Band will find it and sing to it. Their music is impossible not to enjoy. If offers a foothold in reality no high-gloss group can give you."

- Deseret News

"Anything I could say about the band capturing the spirit of old-time music would not be enough to describe the feeling of joy which comes through their music... Their refreshing creativity can be seen in their arrangements, original lyrics, and instrumentation...While their respect for tradition is evident in every aspect of their music... All have superb control of their respective instruments and apply their talents with the utmost sensitivity on each and every song."

My Heartthrobs
I owned this album when I was first learning to play the fiddle. I was hearbroken when I discovered it was lost. Now, re-united, I am delighted to hear some of my favorite fiddle tunes played by the band who first introduced me to them......I love every song....and I'll always be in love with the Deseret String Band.

As good as I remembered
When tossing out a batch of old LP albums last week, I came across my old Deseret String Band Land of Milk and Honey album, which I haven't listened to since our phonograph needle broke 10 years ago. I just couldn't bear to toss it out. It's a treasure, thick with memories of learning delightful tunes from it in the 70's on my fiddle, with my brother on guitar, "Say Old Man..." chief among them. I have listened to the tunes on this album so many times, over so many years, that they are indelibly wired into my neural matter.

When I learned that this album was available from CDBaby, and I snatched up a copy immediately. It's as good as I remembered it. Deseret String Band is the best.
