Synopsis

Amazon.com essential recording
Whereas Bill Monroe alumni Flatt & Scruggs refined and polished the master's lonesome sound, Jimmy Martin, another Blue Grass Boys veteran, made it even rawer, edgier, and more vigorous. Martin's biting, back-of-the-throat lead vocals stand as some of the genre's most remarkable, and his Sunny Mountain Boys gave the music a propulsive rhythmic drive, spearheaded by Martin's own guitar rhythms and dynamic runs. This collection gathers 14 out-and-out classics from Martin's 1956-66 peak Decca period and features the vital contributions of Paul Williams (mandolin, tenor vocals) and young sensation J.D. Crowe (banjo, baritone vocals). --Marc Greilsamer
 

CD Reviews

This is bluegrass
Skinnerboy | 12/10/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"For those who like real bluegrass, this is in the same league as Bill Monroe and The Stanley Brothers. "Ocean of Diamonds" with its imagery is worth the price of the CD -- the rest is gravy. Good gravy like my Granddad used to make. Fans of the Del McCoury Band will enjoy this. In fact, fans of Mike Ness, Johnny Cash and anybody with a little sand in their craw will like this."
