Nicely compiled and annoted by Lee Michael Demsey and Jeff Place (with a 32-page booklet of notes), this is a 25-track anthology that presents songs & tunes from old Folkways albums. Folkways founder, the legendary MO ASCH, was one of the first to recognize the worth of Bluegrass music and let a number of collectors bring him material of various quality for issue on Asch's label beginning in 1956. Some of the best of this work is included on this new survey, with recordings by Earl Taylor, Stanley Brothers, Smiley Hobbs, Red Allen, Curly Seckler, The Country Gentlemen, Doc Watson , The Lilly Brothers, Ronnie Stoneman, Cullen Galyean and Bill Monroe among others.
