RENO & SMILEY 'Early Years: 1951-1959' GUSTO-0959-CD


Those who missed out on the marvelous Reno & Smiley 4-CD boxed set that appeared some years ago will now have another chance to latch on to it. While it does not have the more elaborate packaging of the original set (KING-7001), it does have a 32-page booklet of excellent notes by Gary Reid, who researched and produced this vastly important collection. Here you will find all the songs that made Reno & Smiley one of the key first generation Bluegrass bands: I KNOW YOU'RE MARRIED, TALK OF THE TOWN, BAREFOOT NELLIE, USING MY BIBLE FOR A ROADMAP, DRIFTING WITH THE TIDE, NO LONGER A SWEETHEART OF MINE, including the 4 sides they cut with Tommy Magness before officially starting their partnership. Also here are some of the landmark instrumentals that Don Reno came up with, like BANJO SIGNAL, BANJO RIFF, RENO RIDE, CHARLOTTE BREAKDOWN, HOME SWEET HOME, GREEN MOUNTAIN HOP, LIMEHOUSE BLUES, REMINGTON RIDE, and CHOKING THE STRINGS, among many others. There are 109 tracks on the 4 CDs, and the new price is a bargain! We wholeheartedly recommend this as one of the true keystones of Bluegrass Music! 4-CD set: $ 28.00
