ÊThis impressive 2-CD Set (31 songs) re-visits the years 1953-1962, probably the most successful period for the Osbornes (in terms of artistic quality), and provides a lot of good music as well as a fine, extensive set of notes by Tom Riggs and lengthy commentary and recollections by Sonny (lots of fascinating detail here).Ê ThereÕs also a time line and some good early photos.Ê And what long time Osborne fans should really like is the song selection: itÕs a treat to hear Sonny & Bob on pieces like OLD KENTUCKY BOUND, HELEN, LOVE & WEALTH, DOWN WHERE THE RIVER BENDS, GONE HOME and YOU GO TO YOUR CHURCH, as well as some nifty instrumentals, which showcase BobbyÕs neat mandolin work (BILLY IN THE LOW GROUND, BIG SANDY RIVER, CHEROKEE SHUFFLE, HIGHWAY OF SORROW, etc.).Ê The tracks here were recorded between 1998 and 2002, and include instrumental work by Glen Duncan, David Crow, Bobby Hicks, Terry Eldredge, the late Gene Wooten and others.Ê There are also 5 ÒliveÓ tracks from 1957, a couple from WWVA shows with Red Allen!Ê A super set with a lot to offer.
