Product Description

Various artists “40th Anniversary”.  A nicely produced and very worthwhile 2-CD set put out by the Mountain Empire Community College in southwestern Virginia (this has probably been available locally for a year or two).  It’s a celebration of “Mountain Music” containing 47 tracks of both Old-time and Bluegrass music.  There are a few familiar names here, (Big Medicine, Whitetop Mountain Band, The Wolfe Brothers, Robin & Linda Williams, Glen Roberts & Al Elliot and the Reed Island Ramblers, etc) though we didn’t recognize the bulk of the bands and individual artists.  But for the most part, the music is quite nice, with just a few clunkers here and there.  There are more than a few pieces that are outstanding, such as a neat WHISKEY BEFORE BREAKFAST (played by Jeff Little on piano with guitar accompaniment by Wayne Henderson) and OLD TENNESSEE by Martin Fox and Jeff Winegar.  There’s a nice 12-page booklet that describes the tunes and the musicians.   An interesting and nice project.  2-CD set:  $ 15.00
