This is essentially a sampler drawn from the vaults of Pinecastle Records. An impressive list of artists on the cover turns out to be a bit misleading: Jimmy Martin and Red Allen appear not on their own, but as part of Bill Emerson's bands, as does Tony Rice. Ricky Skaggs, Buck White and Mac Wiseman are guests of Eddie Adcock; John Hartford? He was on an early Pinecastle album by Larry Perkins. Not a knockout sampler by any means, but it's decent music. I DON'T KNOW WHY (Red Allen vocal), DARK AS A DUNGEON (Charlie Waller), OVER THE MOUNTAIN (John Hartford), etc.
