Build Me A Cabin (Tyloa 34760) 1979
Good ol’ Brushwood Laurel. They’re probably the only band in the world to do bluegrass covers of Larry Norman (‘Look Into Jesus’) and Randy Matthews (‘Didn’t He’). With fast-pickin’ banjo and fancy fiddle, this co-ed college-age Milwaukee group of six lays down a fun good-spirited home-grown blending of bluegrass and Jesus folk. Most of their palette sticks to tried-and-true standards like the title track, ‘Somebody Stole His Body’, ‘I Saw The Light’, ‘Pickin’ To Beat The Devil’, and ‘Rocky Top’. Also a couple originals: ‘Goodbye Mr. Devil’ and ‘Another Man’s Shoes’. Slows down for a cover of ‘All My Trials’. Should find good company amongst Zion Mountain Folk and Fish House Fellowship Band. They had at least one other album, 1981’s South On 41. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
