EARLS OF LEICESTER 'The Earls of Leicester' ROU-35772-CD


Those who learned to love Lester Flatt & Earl Scruggs from those yellow & black label Columbia 45s in the late 1950s will really appreciate this highly enjoyable CD --which is a wonderful tribute to Flatt & Scruggs and especially their fine dobro player, Josh Graves. Jerry Douglas was among those who took inspiration from the records that Flatt & Scruggs were making in that period, so who better to organize this project? The group here features Charlie Cushman on banjo, Johnny Warren on fiddle, Shawn Camp on vocals & guitar, Barry Bales on bass, Tim O'Brien on mandolin and vocals, and of course Douglas himself on dobro. The 14 songs and tunes they pick include DON'T LET YOUR DEAL GO DOWN, BIG BLACK TRAIN, I DON'T CARE ANYMORE, SHUCKIN THE CORN, ON MY MIND, I WON'T BE HANGING AROUND, SOME OLD DAY and YOU'RE NOT A DROP IN THE BUCKET. The "Earls" capture the essence and spirit of this great period when Bluegrass was becoming familiar to a wide variety of new converts. Hats off to Douglas and the other musicians here for a job well done!
