For those who would like a good sampler of what’s available on the Sugar Hill label, this is a nice piece, even if a few of the cuts (Yonder Mountain String Band, The Duhks) stretch the definition of what’s “Bluegrass”. Even if you have a huge library of Bluegrass CDs, many of these 17 tracks will sound fresh again in this new context: great cuts are Marty Stuart & Doc Watson playing BLUE RAILROAD TRAIN, Dolly Parton singing I’M GONNA SLEEP WITH ONE EYE OPEN, Bryan Sutton’s HIGH HEEL SHOE, and Ricky Skaggs’ I’LL STAY AROUND, plus solid performances by Doyle Lawson, Tim O’Brien, Ronnie Bowman and Jim Mills. STARRY NIGHT is the nicest piece I”ve yet heard from the Infamous Stringdusters, and there’s an absolutely lovely version of I DON’T BELIEVE YOU’VE MET MY BABY by Alison Krauss from an older Jerry Douglas album. A good, well-chosen sampler.
