VARIOUS ARTISTS 'Mountain Laurel Memories'

  • $13.50


Back in the days of vinyl (LPs), the Mountain Laurel label of eastern Pennsylvania issued a few Bluegrass albums, most notable of which were discs by Bob Paisley & The Southern Grass and the late Chief Powhatan & His Bluegrass Braves. This 25 track CD presents these records again in compact disc form. The 6 cuts here by the Chief (a full blooded Indian known otherwise as Floyd Atkins) are solid and nice enough straight Bluegrass, although not as strong as his fine earlier LP on the Homestead label., and there are also a few average cuts by the Spirits of Bluegrass and East Side Dave. The selling point of the record though is the fine work of Bob Paisley’s band—they do 14 numbers of excellent traditional Bluegrass, such as LET US TRAVEL ON, DROWNING SAILOR, 40 YEARS OF TROUBLE, HONEY IN THE ROCK, MEMORY OF YOU, etc.
