BILL MONROE 'The Father of Bluegrass'

Price: $10.00 (excluding tax)
SKU: SCOUNT-007-CD
Weight: 0.33 LBS


Product Description

 Here is another 25-track compilation from this import label that has already given us good samplers by Flatt & Scruggs and the Stanley Brothers.  The disc has been put together by one Dave Henderson of MOJO (The British rock magazine), and he obviously knows the music. Starting with a Monroe Brothers song (the ever popular  WHAT WOULD YOU GIVE IN EXCHANGE) the album gives us a good sampling of Monroe’s early Bluebird work (MULE SKINNER BLUES, ROCKY ROAD BLUES, etc), then his classic Columbia sides with Flatt, Scruggs and Chubby Wise, and finally a healthy dose of some of Bill’s best Decca cuts. There are a few spots where the sound quality is not what it should be, but for anyone who needs or wants a good Monroe sampler, it’s a bargain at $ 10.00.
