This album boasts a wide variety of material from contemporary bluegrass such as Kathy Kallick’s “Broken Hearted Lover,” Tim O’Brien’s “The Highroad” to the Lennon and McCartney composition “I Will,” and the swing classic “It’s Too Hot for Words.” Instrumentals include the traditional “Red Haired Boy” and the medley “Old Mother Flanagan / Green Fields of America,” the band’s original “Lassie” and a sprightly and humorous version of Leroy Anderson’s “The Typewriter.” A capella close harmony songs include Doyle Lawson’s arrangement of “Sweet Chariot,” the African-style version of “Shut De Do” and the classic “Tie A Yellow Ribbon ‘Round The Old Oak Tree.” This debut album “Not Too Strictly” gives a good overview of Rawhide’s broad repertoire. The group also delivers a very entertaining and humorous stage performance.
