The McReynolds brothers made their biggest impact by combining the sound of traditional bluegrass with other elements of country music. This 20-song collection covers their 1960s association with Epic, when the duo allowed their array of influences to shine through and added drums and electric instruments to their sound. Three Louvin Brothers favorites accompany assorted gospel numbers, a pair of Chuck Berry covers, a Bob Wills standard, hard-driving songs of trains and trucks, and some straight bluegrass. Fans of traditional bluegrass will prefer their earlier Capitol work to this greatest-hits package, but Jim's immaculate tenor vocals, Jesse's innovative mandolin technique, and the pair's natural harmonies are all on display here. --Marc Greilsamer

""The Essential?" Hmm I don't think this is "the essential" Hardly any of their well known songs. I didn't need their version of "Ole Slewfoot". But the thing is, this is the only domestic release of any of their Columbia recordings. So I guess this is all we get."
Pure sounding bluegrass with that downhome flavor

"Bluegrass is not my favorite genre of music. Yet, I was well pleased with this CD. Plus, Jim & Jesse's music makes my opinion of bluegrass more favorable.Every song is clear and audible. To anyone who is considering this CD, buy it. You won't be disappointed."
