ALL MUSIC GUIDE ( https://www.tradebit.com): "...Titcomb can go from a mature divorce song like "If It Were Up to Me" to an up-tempo bluegrass workout like "Gold Plated Love" with ease."
https://www.tradebit.com - Joe Ross ( Bluegrass Now Reviewer): "...Best known for his work on mandolin and pedal steel, Titcomb is also a solid guitar, dobro and banjo player. Fine examples of his picking pyrotechnics are found in the banjo breaks on "Gold Plated Love" and "Snake River." Gordon''s high-octane mandolin break on "Snicker Doodle" would easily bring up prices at the pump."
