The Blues Are Still The Blues


A 15-song retrospective on one of the dynamic traditional bluegrass bands of the 1980s & 90s. In recent decades, many bands have claimed to be "traditional 'grass," but few accomplished this task with the zeal, energy and authenticity as the band who brazenly wore the phrase as their band name. For twelve years, The Traditional Grass delivered powerful bluegrass in the same vein as the genre's founders. While they drew great inspiration from first generation 'grassers such as Flatt & Scruggs, The Stanley Brothers, Jimmy Martin and The Osborne Brothers, what made The Traditional Grass unique was their refusal to remain complacent. The band's premiere lineup - Mark Rader, Joe Mullins, Paul "Moon" Mullins, Gerald Evans, Jr. and Mike Clevenger - brought a freshness to traditional bluegrass that prevented the style from going stale. Debuting in 1983, the group released four independent albums throughout the decade before beginning a partnership with Rebel Records in the early nineties. They would release four successful albums with the label from which all but one of the songs on this 15-track collection are taken from.
