This British import is part of a series that samples different genres of music, and it is a solid, well-documented introductory collection that contains 21 tracks by 20 different artists. Its one weaknessÑand a significant oneÑis that it fails to include anything by most of the 1st generation masters: Monroe, Flatt & Scruggs, Stanley Brothers, Reno & Smiley, the Osbornes, etc. Most of what is here will please most any fan of Bluegrass, with fine recordings by The Bluegrass Album Band, Alison Krauss, Country Gentlemen, Larry Sparks, Rhonda Vincent, J.D. Crowe, Longview, Lynn Morris, Jim & Jesse, Red Allen, Johnson Mountain Boys and Tony Rice, among others. A good sampling and a good value.
