     · Rehearsal For A Reunion doesn’t seem to have quite the edge of their prior lps, but there are still plenty of worthwhile songs, such as their a cappella rendition of traditional ‘Golden Game’. ‘Glory Shone Around’ and Jesus On The Mainline’ both effectively work Dixieland brass into their folksy foot-stomping mandolin melodies.5/5.
