Product Description

Currently—and surprisingly—there is not a whole lot of Bill Monroe’s recorded repertoire available—apart from the wonderful (but expensive) Bear Family boxed sets. It is then somewhat surprising that more “Live show” recordings have not come out (possibly due to the fact that any such issues could meet with legal problems from the major labels)—this will likely change in the future. For the serious Monroe fan, this album is worth noting and recommending. For starters it contains over 25 songs & tunes—a good selection of Bill’s hits mixed in with lesser known songs. It also features a number of cuts on which Monroe is joined by Doc Watson—these are really nice (some or all of these may have come from a rare bootleg LP on the “Fly By Night” label that circulated years ago). There are good notes by Mark Humphrey, though aside from Doc Watson, Humphrey fails to identify other members of the Bluegrass Boys who appear on the album. (From the cover photo it looks like Peter Rowan, Gene Lowinger, and Lamar Grier made up the group for some—if not most—of the songs & tunes). From Monroe’s few introductions it is clear that some of the cuts featured Jack Cooke and Benny Williams (this was all pre-Kenny Baker on fiddle). This is a good all around album that gives the listener a good idea of Monroe’s shows in the 60s.
