"Charlie's high, sweet vocals shine on tunes like 'Rosa Lee McFall'....[A] musical trip back in time revisiting an unsung hero of bluegrass and country music."
While history has virtually ignored Charlie Monroe in light of his brother Bill's seismic accomplishments, this comprehensive box set reveals a career deserving of serious respect in its own right. I'M OLD KENTUCKY BOUND: HIS RECORDINGS 1938-1956 covers practically everything in the Charlie Monroe solo catalog including his entire stints on RCA Victor, Bluebird, and Decca in a beautifully packaged four-disc set that is accompanied by an informative 60-page booklet. A must-have for the Bluegrass completist and for fans of rootsy WWII-era entertainment.
