VARIOUS ARTIST 'Classic Bluegrass Vol. 2'

  • $15.00


Another impressive & enjoyable anthology taken from the fabulous old Folkways label, this album has 28 songs & tunes (for a total of 72 minutes) plus a 32-page booklet of notes by DJ Lee Michael Dempsey & Jeff Place. There are tracks by RED ALLEN, OLA BELLE REED, DOC WATSON, COUNTRY GENTLEMEN, LARRY RICHARDSON, BILL MONROE, LILLY BROTHERS, EARL TAYLOR, and CURLEY SECKLER. It’s nice to see the reappearance of some neat early Bluegrass recordings that had essentially been “lost” or forgotten since the demise of LPs, such as tracks by Sonny Miller, The Friendly City Playboys, etc. (from early Folkways albums documenting the Galax and Union Grove Fiddlers’ conventions. Songs include I’VE ENDURED, ROVING GAMBLER, ROCKY RUN, WALLS OF TIME, I’LL TAKE THE BLAME, CAROLINA IN THE PINES, STONEY CREEK etc
