But the most notable guest appears on one of the album's most striking songs, as Ralph Stanley sings a cover of his brother Carter's "Little Glass of Wine" alongside Burch. Stanley's voice is so distinctive that Burch inevitably sounds like the supporting musician, albeit a crucial one, as his lower, smooth vocals balance the roughness in Stanley's.
With such a collection of comrades, it's fitting that Burch would pay tribute to another fan with broad tastes with the song "John Peel" about the late BBC Radio 1 DJ. Burch's homage is upbeat and instantly captures Peel's passion for music: "There's a life there, living in the grooves / And I can feel it when I'm walking in the room."
