Country Standard Time review of Lonesome River Band’s album “Outside Looking In” – Rickman (guitar) has been one of bluegrass music’s most interesting vocalists since he started with LRB a dozen or so years ago. Two numbers, “Wreck of My Heart” and Mark Knophler’s “Calling Elvis,” demonstrate his impressive range. The first shows his traditional, almost-country side while the latter stretches things a bit, a take on the ‘Elvis Lives’ oeuvre. The instrumental arrangement of “Calling Elvis” is especially brilliant, reinvigorating the late-period Dire Straits song as a pure-grass piece.
