35 Years Of The Best In Bluegrass: 1960-1995 (1995)


35 Years Of The Best In Bluegrass 1960-1995. It was designed to provide a history of the label, from its start under Dick Freeland in Mt. Rainier, Md., to the present, as well as to provide a sampler of sorts featuring most of the dozens of groups and artists who have appeared on the label over the years. Lifting some of the very best cuts from each artist, it is power-packed, varied listening as well. It is safe to say that there will be pleasant surprises for even the most knowledgeable and sophisticated Bluegrass fan. The beautiful 36 page booklet was the last major work of the late Bill Vernon, and besides his astute comments there are many photos from over the years, including many in full color. The booklet also includes a complete listing of every Rebel LP and 45rpm single ever issued, plus sidebars by some guest writers. A great introduction to Bluegrass music in general, this will be a treat for those who want to hear the best early work of such giants as The Country Gentlemen, The Seldom Scene, Del McCoy, Ralph Stanley, Tony Rice, and many others; or for those who have fond recollections of groups like Benny & Vallie Cain, Jimmy Arnold, Earl Taylor, Jim Eanes and dozens more.
