Good Time Blues (Rebel, 2006)

The Boys From Indiana

Reviewed by Larry Stephens

Hit the "play" button, close your eyes and go back two decades while listening to the Boys From Indiana. They were one of the best bands on the circuit at the time and a fan favorite. Unfortunately, their recordings are a rarity these days, almost all on LPs or cassette tapes, making this collection of songs especially welcome.

Aubrey Holt's songwriting skills are a prominent feature in this set, including several songs from their first record, "Atlanta Is Burning." The title track, "You Can Mark It Down," "Those Memories of Mine" and - a lament sounded by a lot of people today - "Play Hank's Songs Once Again" give a hint of why they were so popular.

Other members of the group included Harley Gabbard, Aubrey's uncle (they co-authored the well-known "Family Reunion") and Paul Mullins. This is topnotch bluegrass music, timeless, as relevant to the genre as it was 20 and 30 years ago.
