    The Grascals pay tribute to the 50th anniversary of The Andy Griffith Show with an EP that presents Grascal interpretations of the music played on the show by the Darling Boys, a fictional band played by the Dillards, who were one of the first bluegrass bands to appeal to rockers and hippies. New member Kristen Scott Benson handles the banjo duties and wisely doesn't try to match Doug Darling/Dillard's supersonic picking style. "Dooley," a song about a mountain bootlegger, is played at a moderate tempo, as is "Stay All Night (Stay a Little Longer)," with the bandmembers concentrating on their ensemble playing as impressive models of economical picking, although Benson solos and Jeremy Abshire's Bob Wills-style fiddling highlights their arrangement of the tune. The country gospel standard "Leaning on the Everlasting Arms" is given a fervent reading with sanctified three-part harmonies supplied by Terry Eldredge, Terry Smith, and Danny Roberts. "Boil Them Cabbage Down" is taken at a faster tempo and showcases Benson's banjo, Roberts on mandolin, and Abshire's fiddle. The EP closes with two originals. "Mayberry's Finest Theme" is a sort of ditty that sings the praises of Aunt Bee's cooking, while "Boy, Giraffes Are Selfish" has a lyric that's based on a tagline from an episode of the show. ~ j. poet
