Two Highways is the first album Alison Krauss recorded with her excellent backing band, Union Station, and, appropriately, it demonstrates that she could lead a band through a number of bluegrass standards, as well as several more contemporary numbers. Of course, her instrumental solo continue to be the most impressive thing about her music on Two Highways, but her duets with guitarists Jeff White demonstrate that her vocals are beginning to come into their own.

This is an older album-like really old, none of her bacd Union station is the same but alison still sings with the maturity of the verteran country/bluegrass songstress she is.. THis CD is a must for true Alison Krauss Fans.
Everybody plays real well, and sings real well, and the songs are good picks, but the groove feels unfortable to play along with. The musicians even look uncomfortable and nervous on the cover picture. Of course I was nervous myself playing 15 years ago, myself.
