A Deeper Shade Of Blue
One of the cool things about Del McCoury is how he has always incorporated subtle touches of the blues and honky tonk into his mountain bluegrass. On 1993's A Deeper Shade of Blue the legend pushes those touches to the forefront. If you thought bluegrass was for teetotalers on Sunday afternoon, think again. Dig the laidback, behind-the-bait gait when Del tackles Jerry Lee's "What Made Milwaukee Famous?" He's both high lonsome and down n' dirty. One of the best bluegrass albums of the '90s. Easy.
