DEL MCCOURY 'Blue Side Of Town'

DEL MCCOURY 'Blue Side Of Town'

  • $13.50


This is one of the earlier CDs cut for the ROUNDER label by McCoury, who is now in the Bluegrass Hall of Fame (deservedly so).  It is powerful, hard-core traditional Bluegrass featuring his fine band that here includes his very talented sons Ronnie and Rob (on mandolin and banjo respectively).  Del can take just about any piece of material and make it exciting listening for anyone who appreciates the pure "high lonesome" sound pioneered by his idol, Bill Monroe.  Apart from the remake of HIGH ON A MOUNTAIN and the title song, there are no cuts to rival his very best work, but everything is solid and very well done.
