Ricky Skaggs - Sweet Temptation Click here to see this CD at!

By Marc Greilsamer

Although Ricky Skaggs had already made an impact on the country and bluegrass worlds, this 1979 record was actually his debut as a solo leader. In many ways, Sweet Temptation serves as a worthwhile companion piece to Emmylou Harris's delightful Roses in the Snow. (Skaggs was a member of Harris's Hot Band at the time, and Emmylou even joins in here with harmony vocals.) Recorded with much the same supporting cast and at roughly the same time, Sweet Temptation alternates between traditional country and bluegrass: Steel master Buddy Emmons and electric-guitar blazer Albert Lee boost the country- leaning numbers while Tony Rice, Bobby Hicks, Jerry Douglas, and Marc Pruett guide the bluegrass material. Skaggs's sugary voice is the common thread.
