PRIMITIVE QUARTET - 40th Anniversary Live
After forty years of ministry, the unique sound of the Primitive Quartet lives on as these live
concert recordings celebrate four decades of good, Christian, down-home music. Started in 1973
as two sets of brothers, the Primitive Quartet is well-known and loved for their traditional
mountain shape-note style singing. These albums, recorded at Trinity Baptist Church in
Asheville, North Carolina, feature Reagan Riddle, Norman Wilson, Randy Fox, Jeff Tolbert,
Larry Riddle and Michael Riddle. This spectacular event is captured on a two CD set, as well as
on a DVD. Both capture the great live experience, immortalizing this anniversary celebration.
Almost all of the songs on the albums feature the accompaniment of acoustic instruments
including the mandolin, banjo, fiddle, guitars and acoustic bass. The group's prowess with the
strings is nowhere more apparent than on the instrumental "He Will Set Your Fields On Fire."
The classic picking on the song is fast, smooth and constantly impressive.
The recordings also feature special guest Archie Watkins and Smoky Mountain Reunion. Reagan
Riddle of the Primitive Quartet notes that, "They're traveling as the Archie Watkins and Smokey
Mountain Reunion, but that's the old Inspirations that we traveled with ... We've done things
together down through the years but we've never got it on DVD."
Primitive Quartet's stated goal on their website is "to see saints blessed and encouraged to have a
closer walk with God and to help lead souls to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ." Celebrating
four decades singing and playing instruments in pursuit of this goal, "40th Anniversary Live" is a
great selection of music that applauds this milestone for Primitive Quartet.
