 Chris Hillman
-The Other Side-
By Bob Silvestri

Chris Hillman states in the liner notes to his latest CD, The Other Side, “that it is one of the most enjoyable projects of my entire career.” That comes from the man who has been involved with some of the best bands in music history. From his days with The Byrds, The Flying Burrito Brothers, Manassas and The Desert Rose Band to name a few to an eclectic solo career he has more than left his mark on music. On The Other Side he reworks some of that earlier music with some new songs for a truly enjoyable disc. Working with producer and multi instrumentalist Herb Pederson along with bassist Bill Bryson from his days in The Desert Rose Band and others including Jennifer Warnes the music verves towards a bluegrass sound. Highlights include the seminal Byrds tune “Eight Miles High” done with acoustic guitars and mandolins and from his Desert Rose days “Missing You” one of his best written tunes. Other tracks to check out include “The Water Is Wide” with superb vocals from Jennifer Warnes and “The Wheel”.
