Description

96 tracks over 4CD's providing a potted history of the roots and development of Bluegrass music. Most forms of music change to the point where in the course of time they become almost unrecognisable. Contemporary Jazz, Blues and Rock styles, for instance, bear little relation to earlier forms of the genres. There is much more continuity in Bluegrass, a style of music in which modern groups and musicians still pay homage to the recordings and music of their predecessors. This collection highlights the recorded works of pioneer Bluegrass artists and also those who may have influenced them. It is basically a journey back in time but where most collections choose to commence with the earliest items and work forward this one does things the opposite way round. The first two CDs and a part of the third concentrate on bluegrass recordings from the 1940's and early 50's the remainder of the set covers artists from the 1930's and early 40's who many scholars consider to have been an influence on the earliest Bluegrass performers. A detailed accompanying essay tells the story with biogs of the featured artists.
