HER-651 JIM SHUMATE "Collection Volume 1" Shumate, the near legendary fiddler from Hickory, N.C. who played early on with Bill Monroe and later contributed greatly to Flatt & Scruggs' classic first Mercury session (in which they recorded CABIN IN CAROLINE ), recorded 5 different cassettes for the Heritage label , and material has been drawn from all five of these to make up this fine 24-tune retrospective collection. Now that it is on compact disc, it should get more of the attention it deserves, because Shumate is still a very competent fiddler, and one who is quite at home in both the Bluegrass and Old-Time traditions. In addition to recreating his classic break on CABIN IN CAROLINE, he adds a few other Bluegrass songs & tunes LITTLE GIRL OF MINE IN TENNESSEE, SOME OLD DAY, RAW HIDE and EARL'S BREAKDOWN, though the bulk of the material consists of old time tunes like DUSTY MILLER, BILLY IN THE LOW GROUND, BLACK MOUNTAIN RAG, and PADDY ON THE TURNPIKE. He sings a few, including a nice OLD COUNTRY BAPTIZING (which he wrote). He is accompanied solidly by various musicians including Clarence Greene, John Shuffler, Steve Kilby and the top-notch banjo work of Eric Ellis. A good, solid fiddle collection.
