"Fiddle & Mandolinis the first by Dick Kimmel and Pamela Longtine, two stalwarts of the Minnesota old-time and traditional string music community. Kimmel is a multi-instrumentalist legend, adept at guitar and clawhammer banjo as well as mandolin; Longtine is a superb fiddler with experience in many tradition genres...they've put together the perfect CD...Top notch stuff all around."
"...their music here is well-played and enjoyable, most impressive is their ability to write tunes that sound as if they could be a hundred years old."
"(Dick Kimmel's) talent is well-known...Kimmel's 'Lima Beans' could easily fool you into thinking (it is) from a long-ago time and place."
"Now a Minnesota resident, the acclaimed singer/picker has spent the last four decades bringing traditional country, hard-core bluegrass and old-time string-band music to an international audience."
"Dick Kimmel can best be described as a musicologist, a staff writer for Bluegrass Unlimited for twenty years, record producer, country and bluegrass musician. There is very little about country music that Dick doesn't know about."
"The more I played Dick Kimmel's '25-Year Collection,' the more I was amazed at Dick's wonderful talent, and the more I wanted to replay the CD."
"Dick Kimmel's 25-Year Collection does a fine job commemorating Dick Kimmel's illustrious musical career."
"Dick Kimmel is excellent mandolin picker who also excels on guitar and clawhammer banjo, whilst having fine voice too. An extremely pleasing blen of old time, mountain and bluegrass."
"Dick Kimmel...is best known to bluegrass fans as a fine mandolin player, but he has always been serious about the clawhammer banjo. Now his fifth (Copper Creek) CD is dedicated entirely to this style. Kimmel shows the full range of the clawhammer banjo whether as a solo instrument or in an old time band or playing bluegrass."
