LUKE THOMPSON '50 Years Of Bluegrass Music With Luke Thompson'

  • $20.00


There’s a lot of music on the 2-CD set , with 48 songs and tunes by Thompson and a host of guests. For those who don’t recognize the name, Luke Thompson is a Louisiana born mandolin picker who has been playing since the early 1950s. He idolized Bill Monroe and in fact became a leader of the house band at Monroe’s Bean Blossom music park at one time. Some of the musicians who played with Thompson over the years included Allen Shelton, Hershel Sizemore, Rual Yarborough, Byron Berline, Jack Youngblood Butch Robins and many others. All of them are heard here in one form or another—some studio re-cordings, but mostly live shows. The one major drawback on this project is the fact that the sound quality on much of the set is not good. Still, this is a nice souvenir for those who have known this gentleman over the years.
