Great collection of instrumentals, a good introduction to the genre for people who don't like the twangy, nasal vocals that often accompany the style.

CD Reviews

Great bluegrass -- Excellent value
Ronald Scheer | Los Angeles | 01/05/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"All-instrumental collections of bluegrass are hard to find, and if you like it when a band takes a break from singing and just plays their instruments, here's your chance for total immersion. All the songs on this compilation are from Rounder Records albums released 1976-1998, by artists with familiar names like Alison Krauss and Tony Rice, and others you may never have heard of. All are first rate, foot stompin' renditions of bluegrass traditionals, with a few great originals -- Bill Monroe's "Bluegrass Breakdown" and Earl Scruggs' "Foggy Mountain Chimes." Best known for most listeners is a rousing version of "Orange Blossom Special" by the Johnson Mountain Boys. If you like bluegrass with plenty of pickin' at breakneck speed, this CD will keep you smilin' through many, many replays."
Good but not great

"This album was good, not great. If you want to hear great then get Tony Rice the bluegrass album or another one called "ultimate Pickin'" , for bluegrass with singing try ricky skaggs at charleston hall. Those are great albums, this was okay."
