  • $15.00


Taken from RCA Victor’s vaults, this is an interesting sampler that takes the listener on a quick musical tour from the early solos of Harry McClintock & Jimmie Rodgers to the polished Bluegrass sound of Jimmy Martin & The Osborne Bros. (THAT’S HOW I CAN COUNT ON YOU). In between there are some nifty tracks by The Monroe Brothers, Carter Family, Wade Mainer, Byron Parker, Bill Monroe, The Morris Bros. and Jimmy Murphy among others (18 cuts in all). Though most of this material has been out before, and it is clearly another attempt to jump on the “O BROTHER” bandwagon, it’s still a decent introductory compilation, with notes by Rick Kienzle. The Morris Brothers fine SALTY DOG and SOMEBODY LOVES YOU DARLING (with pretty mandolin & guitar work), and Jimmy Murphy’s classics ELECTRICITY and MOTHER WHERE IS YOUR DAUGHTER TONIGHT are highlights. SHADY GROVE, LITTLE MAGGIE, TENNESSEE BLUES, SIX WHITE HOSSES etc.
