VARIOUS 'The Early Days of Bluegrass' BCF-101-CD/BOOK
Created as a fundraiser to support Bluegrass Country radio, and the Bluegrass Country Foundation is 'The Early Days of Bluegrass' 6-CD set comprising 153 tracks, and a 203 page book. Purchase them together or separately.
The book essentially constitutes the “liner notes” for the 6-CD set comprising 153 tracks of early bluegrass music, mostly recorded for small and long-since departed regional record labels. In the early 1970s, the three founders of Rounder Records -- Ken Irwin, Marian Leighton Levy, and Bill Nowlin -- devoted a considerable period of time (with the crucial help of many) to preparing 10 long-playing albums of early bluegrass music. This is very much "music from another time" -- 153 tracks of early bluegrass music, and the stories of the singers and musicians who made this time. Released over a few years, the albums present some of the best of early bluegrass.
