  • $15.00


The late Red Allen is considered to be one of the most important exponents of the "high, lonesome sound," the epitome of bluegrass singing. Red Allen's spirited vocals and strong rhythm guitar make him one of the greatest innovators in bluegrass while remaining true to his roots, playing it straight and singing it with soul. Allen's 1964 Folkways album BLUEGRASS, featuring mandolin virtuoso FRANK WAKEFIELD, is regarded as one of the most influential documents in the genre. Smithsonian Folkways presents this remarkable album plus six never-released cuts and additional selections from four later Folkways albums. 72 minutes, 36-Page booklet, photos, and extensive notes.
