Product Description:

Arranger: Earl Scruggs.
It's difficult to even imagine modern bluegrass without the refinements that Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs brought to the form, and it would be tough to find a contemporary bluegrass banjo player anywhere who didn't owe half of what he did on the instrument to the way Scruggs tore at it. This set combines two of Flatt & Scruggs' Columbia albums, 1970's Breaking Out and 1973's A Boy Named Sue, on one disc, and both are fairly typical outings. Highlights include a smooth version of the traditional "Handsome Molly," the intriguing "Polka on a Banjo" (don't worry, it still sounds exactly like bluegrass), and a nice, airy rendition of Johnny Cash's "I Walk the Line." ~ Steve Leggett
