The Whites

Sisters Cheryl and Sharon White and their daddy, Buck, out of Nashville, sing with a romantic, naive simplicity reminiscent of '60s folkies. This album would have been an absolute delight then. It is an absolute delight now. The three Whites take turns singing lead, though Sharon gets a turn or two more than the others. She is the wife of Ricky Skaggs, who produced this album and also plays guitar, piano, viola and fiddle. In fact, his Cajun fiddling behind Buck's vocal on the Roy Acuff standard Jole' Blon is a highlight of the album. Another is the lovely Harlan Howard-Brent Maher tune Mama Don't You Know Your Little Girl. Sharon's vocal of the up-tempo gospel tune Living in the Name of Love, backed by Jerry Douglas' Dobro, is fun too. But then this is all pure, country music, as sweet as the sweetest bucket of fresh cream anyone could imagine. (MCA/Curb)
