FLATT & SCRUGGS 'Best Of The Flatt & Scruggs TV Show, Vol. 7'

  • $18.00


Considering that these TV shows from the early 1960s were almost lost, we are fortunate indeed to have any of this great material to enjoy, let alone some 16 full length half hour shows. Led by Lester Flatt’s warm MCing, the group plays about 10 numbers per show, including some songs and tunes that the band never recorded commercially. There’s plenty of Earl Scruggs great banjo picking, Curly Sechler’s superb tenor singing, Uncle Josh (Buck Graves) on the dobro, etc. As on the other DVDs in this series, there are two half hour shows—one is a combination of shows from 1960 & 1961, and the second show appears to be the oldest in the series, dating to 1956 (!). Have fun picking out some of the subtle differences between the earliest and latest shows! Guesting on this show is Kentucky Slim, with a little dance routine that older Flatt & Scruggs fans will remember. Some of the songs here include BEFORE I MET YOU, DOWN THE ROAD, HAVE YOU COME TO SAY GOODBYE, LOVE AND WEALTH and OLD FASHIONED PREACHER.
