This 24-track set from the vaults of Rural Rhythm rounds up a fiery batch of bluegrass jams recorded between 1963 and 1967. On this spirited set, the Cherokee, North Carolina-bred banjo player is backed by the Maggie Valley Boys, who skillfully tear through standards like "Foggy Mountain Top," "Shady Grove," "John Henry," and "She'll Be Coming 'Round the Mountain." ~ James Christopher Monger
