VARIOUS 'Bluegrass Today'

  • $22.50


The superhuge Time-Life company has recently gotten into Bluegrass in a pretty big way, finding that there is, indeed, a pretty sizable market for this genre of music when it has the advantage of top-flight marketing (we’ve heard that some of Time’s Bluegrass compilations have already sold well over 100,000 copies). Much to its credit, Time-Life has turned to some really knowledgeable people to select the themes and material for these projects, which are then marketed via TV, through their own vast club network, and finally at the retail level through regular record stores. This fine 2-CD, 32- track anthology bears the mark of Eddie Dean, a sharp & respected writer in the Washington D.C. area, and contains a fine assortment of songs by Rhonda Vincent, Ricky Skaggs, Ralph Stanley, Del McCoury, Jerry Douglas, Claire Lynch, Earl Scruggs, IIIrd Tyme Out, Mark Newton, James King and others. Songs include BLUE BAYOU, ANGEL BAND, SHADY GROVE, HOBO BLUES, MURDER ON MUSIC ROW, JERUSALEM RIDGE, JOHN & MARY, STILL CLIMBING MOUNTAINS, BLUE TRAIN, LONESOME OLD HOME, etc
