Circles Around Me
Label: Sugar Hill Records
Hey, hey, hey, how in the hell did we get this far?" asks Bush on the anthemic title track. It's a question that sums up the reflective nature of Circles Around Me. Though the legendary mandolin player is just 57, he's made enough music to fill 10 lifetimes. This is Bush's first album in many a moon, and that has a lot to do with its back-to-basics approach. On tracks such as "Diamond Joe" and "Out on the Ocean," he sounds like the young gun he was back in ye olde New Grass Revival days.
