  • $120.00


Lester Flatt's RCA recordings are among the finest & most underrated recordings in Bluegrass music. For many years, Lester had been unhappy with Flatt & Scruggs' direction, so, after the act dissolved in 1968, he reverted to his first love, traditional music. He recruited a top notch band that included among others Roland White, Marter Stuart, Bobby Osborne, & Josh Graves, and went back to playing the small auditoriums and venues that he & Earl had played at the start of their career. This 6-CD boxed set contains all of Lester's recordings for Columbia and RCA between 1969 and 1974, as well as 18 Flatt & Scruggs recordings that could not be located earlier. A total of 148 songs. The breakdown is as follows: 18 Flatt & Scruggs masters that were not included in the Flatt & Scruggs boxed set series, 19 solo Lester Flatt recordings for Columbia, all his RCA masters, including those with Mac Wiseman, and the complete Vanderbilt Concert from March 19, 1974, with Bill Monroe, including 11 previously unissued masters, including three solo recordings by Bill Monroe. Included is a thick, 50 page book of liner notes by Thomas Goldsmith with an introduction by Marty Stuart, discography, and plenty of fantastic & rare photos. Highly recommended! 148 Songs.
