Product Description

JOHN DUFFEY: “The Rebel Years, 1962-1977”. I’ts
safe to say that no one was more instrumental in creating the contemporary style
of Bluegrass than John Duffey. He was a founding member of both the Country
Gentlemen and then The Seldom Scene, and though both bands continued to
perform and record later on, there’s not much doubt that most of their best and
most influential recordings were done for the Rebel label. With band mates like
Charlie Waller and John Starling, there wasn’t a need for Duffey to do much
more than supply his breath taking tenor harmonies and pick his mandolin. But
happily he found time to take an occasional solo, and this gem of a re-issue
presents 15 of them, about evenly split between tracks with the Gents and cuts
with the Scene. There’s something special about hearing all these great songs on
one disc:
THE YOUNG FISHERWOMAN, SOME OLD DAY, THIS
MORNING AT NINE, BRINGING MARY HOME, FALLING LEAVES, 500
MILES, GIRL FROM THE NORTH COUNTRY, HEAVEN, REASON FOR
BEING and SILENCE OR TEARS among others. (His rendition of THE
SCHOOL HOUSE FIRE was not previously issued on Rebel). A wonderful
tribute to a great artist, with a fine set of notes by Geoff Himes, HIGHLY
