Rare Bluegrass From Nashville: The 1960s - Various Artists

Rare Bluegrass From Nashville: The 1960s
Released on 22/02/10. 1960's Bluegrass from Nashville's Indie Labels The Spar recordings featured on this collection were recorded in 1966 (Spar LP 300 "The Bluegrass Sound Of Carl Story") and show Story and the Rambling Mountaineers returning to their straight bluegrass roots. Bill Monroe and Flatt & Scruggs had crossed over to college and folk festival crowds and Carl followed right behind them, becoming a fixture on the bluegrass festival circuit during the sixties, seventies and eighties. Very little is known of Mark Peek and the New Kentucky Travelers except that they recorded just this one song for the Spar label.

"Dueling Banjos" was an enormous hit record for Eric Weissberg in 1972, having been featured in the film "Deliverance". This version was on the Spar/Plantation House LP "Dueling Banjos, Rocky Mountain High and the City Of New Orleans" by The Now Generation and quite possibly features Bobby Thompson (of Barefoot Jerry fame) on banjo. The remainder of the recordings featured on this compilation are from W.C. "Red" Wortham's Sur- Speed label. Red's recordings were for the grass roots rural bluegrass fans. Fiddler Earl McCollum recorded only three 45s in his career, all were for Sur- Speed, "If God Had Wanted Us On The Moon" achieved cult status. We can be thankful that there are recordings documenting this wonderful chapter in American musical history.
