ÊAn excellent 13-track sampler here, drawn from RounderÕs extensive catalog.Ê There are classic recordings here byÊ Blue Highway (WONDROUS LOVE), the Bluegrass Album Band (MODEL CHURCH), Nashville Bluegrass Band (GOSPEL PLOW), Ricky Skaggs (RIVER OF JORDAN and Tony Rice (WAYFARING STRANGER). Just a cut below these are songs by The Weary Hearts, James King, Dailey & Vincent (AMAZING GRACE), Dry Branch Fire Squad, IIIrd Tyme Out and the Grascals.Ê A good performance by J. D. Crowe (CRYINÕ HOLY) is dampened by crude and superfluous percussion, and a track by Phyllis Boyens is simply out of place on a Bluegrass anthology.Ê It would have been nice to see individual artist credits, and without budget pricing Rounder may face very limited sales on this sampler.Ê
