"By coincidence I was planning on featuring a few older Gillis recordings on
Bluegrass Cafe today, and boy was I surprised to find 'Swampgrass' waiting
for me when I got to the studio. Without even having a chance to listen, I
went on the air and put on the song Swampgrass right after the opener, and
the phones lit up! The funniest call was from a local musician who was
hoping I had just discovered a rare deep catalog song that he might take to
his band. Boy was he surprised to find it was brand new! I tell you, there is
nothing so refreshing and exciting as some hardcore straight-ahead hard
driving bluegrass served up by Larry Gillis. Thank you so much for sending.
This one will get played a lot!"

"You advertised a "Hard Driving Bluegrass Band" & that is what I got. Many bands say
they are hard driving, but something is lost in the translation. I just loved your project!!
On a scale of 1 to 10 this project was a 12!! Your title song "Swampgrass" set the tone
for a very quick 47+ minutes of superb music. As a Stanley Bros. fan for many years I
was impressed by how much your music sounds like theirs. Your vocals both lead &
harmony were superb, your original material sounds as if it was written in the 50's &
your instrumental work was exceptional. Each & every song held something special for
the listener. After listening to this project 3x in a row my cd playing couldn't take that
much excitement. I had to give it a break. While playing your project in the studio my
request lines were constantly ringing. "This is the real deal with the real feel: Did I tell
you that we loved "Swampgrass"?"
