BLUEGRASS CARDINALS 'Essential Bluegrass Cardinals: Definitive Collection'

  • $13.50


In a long and impressive career, the Bluegrass Cardinals (led by Don & David Parmley) recorded for the Sierra, Rounder, CMH and Sugar Hill labels (and their own label as well). But the CMH period (1978-1981) was arguably their best and most influential. CMH has done an excellent job in presenting this attractive 24-song re-issue that is culled from their five excellent LPs for the label. Randy Graham, Bobby Hicks, David Ratcliff, Mike Hartgrove and Bobby Clark are among the musicians taking part in these sessions, and some of the fine songs include MOUNTAIN LAUREL, 32 ACRES, JUBILEE ROAD, UNCLE BILLY PLAY YOUR FIDDLE, and some lovely gospel tracks like SHINE HALLELUJAH SHINE, ANGELS ROCK ME TO SLEEP and SWEET HOUR OF PRAYER. An excellent tribute to one of the finest of the 2nd generation Bluegrass bands.
