Great collection of bluegrass oldies

"This is the follow-up to an earlier collection called - you've guessed it - Appalachian stomp Bluegrass classics. That compilation (which I've already reviewed) includes all the traditional bluegrass songs that are famous outside bluegrass circles including Blue moon of Kentucky, Foggy mountain breakdown, The ballad of Jed Clampett, Rocky top and Duelling banjos.This collection mainly focuses on songs that are regarded as bluegrass classics by bluegrass fans but are generally not known by the public, except for two songs that are bluegrass covers of non-bluegrass songs. Fox on the run was a top ten UK pop hit for Manfred Mann in the late sixties but has become a bluegrass standard. City of New Orleans is a folk-country standard, which has been recorded by many fine singers including Willie Nelson, Judy Collins, Lynn Anderson and John Denver. Now you get the chance to hear a bluegrass version by the Seldom Scene.The other songs here feature some of the biggest names in traditional bluegrass including Bill Monroe, Flatt and Scruggs, the Stanley brothers (including Ralph, whose recent albums have done so much to widen the appeal of bluegrass music), Mac Wiseman, Jim and Jesse, The Osbourne brothers and the Country gentleman. Alison Krauss closes the set with one of her early recordings.If you enjoyed the previous volume, you will love this. If you haven't heard the other volume, buy that first."

Chockfull of really good Bluegrass

"I do like good Bluegrass music, and this album is chockfull of really good Bluegrass. It's a sequel to the first Appalachian Stomp album, and it is just as good as that one. The tunes are made by a range of great musicians, including Flatt & Scruggs, Jimmy Martin and his Sunny Mountain Boys, Alison Krauss, and more.
This is a very good Bluegrass album, one that is sure to please any Bluegrass fan. I love most all of the tunes on it, and I like listening to it over and over again. I highly recommend this album."
