This is the first of many CDB posts. 1974's Fire on the Mountain is a crucial piece of Tennessee history. With obtuse mountain epics "Caballo Diablo" and "No Place to Go" and down to earth foothill shakers like "Trudy" and "Georgia" one would be hard pressed to find a better masterpiece that utilizes fiddle, banjo, twin lead guitar harmony, dobro and a conga player nicknamed "coconut". The album art by James Floruroy Holmes really captures feel of the album... Racoons, vegetables being grown, Mountains and Waterfalls!!! "Hungover, red eyed, dog tired satisfied-It's a long road and a little wheel and it takes a lot of turns to get there.Thank you,damnit"
