From its earliest days there has always been a premium placed on instrumental prowess in Bluegrass music, and to hear one amazing tune after another is truly invigorating and inspiring. That is the nature of this superb CD that highlights some of the finest performances from Rebel Records' long history. With stunning examples that feature lead guitar, banjo, mandolin and/or fiddle, there's more than enough variety here to warrant many repeated plays. The 20 tunes include gems by Tony Rice, Seldom Scene, Ralph Stanley, Kenny Baker, J.D. Crowe, Jimmy Arnold, Norman Blake, Whitley & Skaggs, Don Reno and Josh Graves among others. Besides the obvious gems like BLACK JACK, ORANGE BLOSSOM SPECIAL, BILLY IN THE LOW GROUND (Tony Rice) and Bill Emerson's HOME SWEET HOME, there are some "sleepers" like Cody Kilby's ST. ANNE'S REEL, Richard Greene's LITTLE RABBIT and a lovely two guitar treatment of OLD SPINNING WHEEL by Charlie Waller & Randall Hylton. A super collection of great music at a bargain price!
