With the original notes and cover art, this is a welcome re-issue of the Gents’ very first album—issued on a Folkways LP in 1960 it was an important and quite influential record at the time, and many of the songs were quickly borrowed and adopted by young and up-and-coming new groups of the period. The 16 performances hold up well, featuring the superb singing of both Charlie Waller and John Duffey, plus Eddie Adcock’s original, dynamic banjo work (Adcock was no slouch vocally, either, contributing fine baritone harmony work. One of the classic early Bluegrass albums.
