Ana overlooked master
Stuart Bonnington | Clarksville, TN USA | 09/02/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Allen Shelton, long retired from the Bluegrass scene, was truly one of the most inspirational banjo players of his era. While a number of the tunes on this lp (now cd) were also in the repertoire of Don Reno, Shelton was no copy. If anything, there was a cross-fertilization. Having heard this recording for the first time on cd after not hearing the album for a number of years, I forgot just how exciting Shelton was. Shelton will always be known for the "Shelton bounce" style of playing: a syncopation that made his sound truly unique. This recording marks the cd emergnece of one the true masters. If you find Shelton to your liking , you will want to check outDon Wayne Reno's homage to this master on his cd, "Heroes"."
