Weight: 0.33 LBS


Product Description

Originally issued as a 2-LP set on their own Old Dominion label, the songs and tunes here were taken from live recordings made in 1962—happily saved by the duo at a time when most successful Bluegrass artists were recording right over the tapes they made for their radio and TV shows.  There are 26 tracks on this new CD, mostly  songs & tunes that they never recorded but included on their radio shows for  Martha White Flour,  their sponsor at the time.  It’s a great selection of material that their many fans will be thrilled to have, with fine versions of songs like ON THE MISSISSIPPI SHORE, I CRIED AGAIN, ON THE BANKS OF THE OHIO, FOGGY MOUNTAIN TOP, PRECIOUS MEMORIES, etc.  At the time of these recordings, Jim & Jesse had probably their best group ever, with Alan Shelton on banjo, Jim Buchanan on fiddle, and Don McHan on guitar & extra vocals.  Shelton gets to play BYE BYE BLUES and BEER BARREL POLKA, and Buchanan does a nice job on CHEYENNE and SNOWFLAKE BREAKDOWN.    Nice to see this available again.
