Col. Tom Riggs --founder of the Pinecastle label -- worked out an interesting 4-CD project that was to trace the careers of Bob & Sonny Osborne from their earliest days to their joining the Grand Ole Opry in 1964. Three albums were produced and released, but the fourth and last disc ("NASHVILLE") never came out --possibly due to health problems of Colonel Riggs. Now under new ownership, Pinecastle has decided to finish the 4-disc series, using material that was recorded at Owen Bradley's Barn in Nashville in 1975. This album is more of a country record than Bluegrass --I am not positive but I think it was Tom Riggs' intention to go fully Bluegrass throughout the series. There are a few very nice cuts on this CD, namely two Louvin Brothers songs, MY BABY'S GONE and WHEN I STOP DREAMING. Unfortunately there are only 8 tracks on the record, and the final cut (HALF A MIND) recorded in 1995 has little going for it. The other seven tracks were recorded 20 years earlier and are quite typical of what the Osbornes were doing when pretty much away from the Bluegrass scene; Dale Sledd is here on rhythm guitar, along with such Nashville names as "Pig" Robbins on piano, Ray Edenton, Leon Rhodes and Hal Rugg . There are three Jake Landers songs here, and Phil Rosenthal's fine MUDDY WATERS.
