With Body And Soul: A Bluegrass Tribute to Bill Monroe (2011)

Various Artists

Rebel Records has issued this 17-track compilation of songs and tunes associated with Bill Monroe, but played by an impressive list of artists over the 50 year history of the Rebel label. It’s a gem and is bargain priced in the label’s Vault Master series. A small sampling of the music here includes cuts by Red Allen (Close By), Don Rigsby (Kentucky Waltz), Jim & Jesse (Uncle Pen), Mac Wiseman(Footprints In The Snow), Tony Rice (A Good Woman’s Love) and Kenny Baker & Bobby Hicks’ Tallahassee. There are also songs by Peter Rowan, Del McCoury, Lonesome River Band and Ralph Stanley. Lots of great music here, and a 12-page booklet of notes by Neil Rosenberg.
