“The Best Of” This is an impressive, very nicely packaged 2-CD set with 35 songs and notes by Robert Oermann plus a detailed listing of who plays what on each track. It’s hard to believe this band was formed over 30 years ago. This is a true retrospective and let’s give Capitol Records credit for working with other labels in putting this set together: there are cuts borrowed from King, Rounder, Flying Fish, Sugar Hill, MCA, and even a couple of live performances taken from the Austin City Limits TV show (1987), as well as about 15 from their years with Capitol/Liberty. So, in addition to the ever-present leading force behind the band, Sam Bush, you can also hear Curtis Burch, the late Courtney Johnson, John Cowan, Bela Fleck, Pat Flynn, & Butch Robins. A must-have compilation for fans of this very influential “progressive” Bluegrass group. (Eight of the cuts are previously unissued). GREAT BALLS OF FIRE, ON THE BOULEVARD, SAPPORO, WHITE FREIGHTLINER, GOOD WOMAN’S LOVE, SEVEN BY SEVEN, ANGEL EYES, AIN’T THAT PECULIAR, PRINCE OF PEACE, etc
