It's hard to fault this 30-track set, which is jam-packed with some simply mind-boggling picking. With individual efforts aboard from Merle Travis, Sonny Osborne and the Osborne Brothers, Jim & Jesse, Joe Maphis, Johnny Gimble, Lester Flatt, and Benny Martin, this is all prime material, with performances that seem to leap out of the speakers at times. It's impossible to be in a bad mood after hearing this one all the way through. ~ Cub Koda
