With a generous 18 tracks, True Bluegrass Mandolin draws on Rebels' vast catalog along with tracks from Rebel’s sister label, County Records. First and second generation performers such as Red Rector, Hershel Sizemore, Frank Wakefield, and Doyle Lawson provide solid links to the roots of bluegrass. Younger musicians like Alan Bibey, Dempsey Young, Jimmy Gaudreau and Larry Rice burst forth with inventive variations. Still others, like Butch Baldassari and Scott Napier, fuse youthful enthusiasm with the fundamentals of the masters. Among the highlights are Bill Monroe picking on his own showpiece “Road to Columbus” and tracks by Ricky Skaggs and Frank Wakefield that appear on CD for the first time! In fact, Wakefield’s “Bill Cheatham” is issued here for the first time anywhere.
