Hand Picked 25 Years of Bluegrass Various Artists 2 CD's

$4.99

Rounder compiled this superb 50-song set to serve as an introduction to bluegrass in general and to their own catalog in particular. Obvious marketing motives aside, the collection has few weaknesses and offers a broad look at the ever-morphing genre. Perhaps more than any other label, Rounder gave exposure to the renegade progressive and "newgrass" musicians who worshiped the style despite the fact that they weren't from the mountains.

Rounder compiled this superb 50-song set to serve as an introduction to bluegrass in general and to their own catalog in particular. Obvious marketing motives aside, the collection has few weaknesses and offers a broad look at the ever-morphing genre. Perhaps more than any other label, Rounder gave exposure to the renegade progressive and "newgrass" musicians who worshipped the style despite the fact that they weren't from the mountains. Folks like David Grisman, Bill Keith, Tony Trischka, and Bela Fleck push the music in new directions while others such as Del McCoury, Don Stover, James King, Jim & Jesse, and Vern Williams represent more-traditional concerns. Still others--Tony Rice, David Grier, J.D. Crowe, Nashville Bluegrass Band among them--adeptly fuse elements of tradition and innovation. This collection also highlights the important contributions of female artists including Hazel and Alice, Laurie Lewis, Claire Lynch, and Alison Krauss.

This CD set is in excellent to like new condition. There are a few faint tiny marks on the disc 1 only, Disc 2 is flawless. The insert that holds the 2 cd's has separated from the frame, but still holds the CD's in place. As with all my CD's, they will include the jewel case along with all artwork and booklets.

Consider purchasing more than one CD. All additional CD's ship for free with the first in the same transaction. Can not be combined with any other category purchases at the discounted rate.
