Some may tend to overlook the Gentlemen’s Sugar Hill recordings, cut when the group was making many personnel changes, but in fact there are many super cuts to be heard, especially off their 1st effort for Sugar Hill, “Sit Down Young Stranger”. This compilation combines 20 songs, among the best of which are COME & SIT BY THE RIVER, THE LIKES OF YOU, FOR THE FIRST TIME, IT’S JUST LIKE HEAVEN, THE IN CROWD, DARBY’S CASTLE, GOD’S COLORING BOOK, LONESOME WITHOUT YOU & THINGS IN LIFE. Doyle Lawson is prominent on many of these, with Mike Auldridge helping out on dobro on some also. Some fine cuts, COAL BLACK GOLD, HONEY DON’T, RIVER BOTTOM, LONELY DANCER, RIVERBOAT FANTASY, etc.
