BVBB was privileged to be involved in Dave Dicks recent release on CMH records titled: Pickin' on Dwight Yoakum  As a band we played the 2 instrumentals noted above.  Dave produced and played a number of instruments while his brother Bob recorded, mixed and engineered the project. Lot's of hot pickers were included in the project.  Here's an apt description:
"Yoakam’s most popular songs are completely reinvented with great success on this all-new collection. These original arrangements capture Yoakam’s platinum selling sounds while bringing it back to the bare-root essence of bluegrass."   
Catalog #: CMH-8796   Check it out!! A Google search will yield some sound bites!

    CMH Records continues to be a leader in the field of country and Bluegrass music. As you will hear in this outstanding collection of classic and contemporary roots music, the independent record label from Los Angeles has much to celebrate. CMH Records was born in 1975 when founders Martin Haerle and Arthur Smith teamed up to record and release the music of the biggest names in Bluegrass. Lester Flatt, The Osborne Brothers, Jim & Jesse, Mac Wiseman, Merle Travis, Grandpa Jones, Carl Story, Don Reno, The Bluegrass Cardinals, The Stonemans and many others recorded some of their finest work for CMH during the ‘70s and ‘80s. The label accumulated a rich catalog of classic American music, garnering numerous awards and Grammy nominations along the way.
Catalog #: CMH-1799
Bob Dick's first solo project is an excellent showcase of his instrumental and vocal skills (Bob sings lead and harmony, plays bass, mandolin, guitar, and fiddle!) as well as his arranging, recording and engineering expertise. Featuring guest visits by brother David Dick on banjo and the New Hampshire master of the Dobro, Roger Williams. Bluegrass with a modern flavor, yet true to the spirit of Christmas which inspired these classic songs, this CD deserves a place in any acoustic music lover's collection.
