FLATT & SCRUGGS 'Best Of the Flatt & Scruggs TV Show Vol.6'

  • $18.00


As above, with two shows from May 1962. On these shows Curly Seckler is not present, so Hylo Brown fills in on tenor (and sings a few solos including GIRL IN THE BLUE VELVET BAND). Scruggs plays FLINT HILL SPECIAL and a neat LONESOME ROAD BLUES, and the Quartet features ON THE ROCK WHERE MOSES STOOD and I’LL NEVER BE LONESOME AGAIN. The band was featuring a lot of Carter Family songs at the time, with Earl on guitar, and here they include KEEP ON THE SUNNYSIDE and FALSE HEARTED LOVER. Lester & Hylo do a great duet on LIVE AND LET LIVE, and Paul Warren has his fiddle pieces with Earl’s banjo very much present. Flatt & Scruggs’ show was thoroughly professional and quite sophisticated musically, yet it was 100% aimed at and welcomed by a purely rural audience: a unique time and occurance in the history of country music.
