Liner Note Authors: Louise Scruggs; Peter Welding.
Combining two of Lester Flatt & Earl Scruggs' Columbia LPs from the early '60s, 1962's Folk Songs of Our Land and 1963's Hard Travelin', on a single CD, this set hardly skips a heartbeat between the two original releases since both are cut from the same fabric, featuring bluegrass renditions of old folk and country tunes like "Ellen Smith," "The Wreck of the Old 97," "Deep Blue Sea," and Woody Guthrie's "This Land Is Your Land," as well as the duo's hit theme song from the Beverly Hillbillies television show, "The Ballad of Jed Clampett." It's fun. It's bluegrass. It's Flatt & Scruggs. ~ Steve Leggett
