3.5 out of 5 stars

Eldorado starts like a greased ball bearing sliding all over Andy Gaydos’ gorgeous pedal steel strings, and when it combines with the full quartet Psychodillo melds to form a high country/bluegrass fusion. Gaydos is joined by guitarist Brad Martin, bassist Bradley Ryan Morse and former Shanti Groove mandolin player John Heiland. All of the players contribute vocals throughout Eldorado’s eight tracks, but the vocals are secondary to the instrumentation and while some songs give Martin and Heiland ample room to shine on solos, everything takes a bit of back seat to Gaydos’ steel — the album’s centerpiece. Morse’s bowed bass introduction to “Black Mountain Mama” with Heiland and Martin playing subtle Tony Rice-like accents is excellent.
