    EngineerRichard Adler

    Personnel: Ricky Skaggs (vocals, mandolin); Tony Rice (vocals, guitar).
    Recorded at Arch Street Studios, Berkeley, California in 1980. Originally released on Sugar Hill. Includes liner notes by Jon Weisberger.
    Digitally remastered by David Glasser (Airshow Mastering, Boulder, Colorado).
    Originally released in 1980, this album presents a meeting of two masters of American acoustic roots music. Ricky Scaggs and Tony Rice have played with a veritable Who's-Who (Emmylou Harris, Vassar Clements, etc.) of country, and each have extensive and varied careers of their own; but that's not why this disc warrants a listen.
    SKAGGS & RICE is a gem of classic, rarely heard traditional country duets, with touches of gospel and bluegrass--just vocals, guitar and mandolin. Ricky Scaggs & Tony Rice sing in earnest close harmony, evoking the Brothers Louvin, Delmore, and Everly. The recording has a spare quality that gives this set a timeless feel. There are no fancy or showy displays of gee-whiz instrumental wizardry--just two friends playing traditional music with quiet dignity and heartfelt simplicity.

  • Critic Reviews
    CMJ (5/8/00, p.32) - "...With Skaggs on mandolin and Tony Rice on acoustic guitar, the duo's gospel-style vocal harmonies...deliver perfect examples of classic bluegrass."
