This two-fer from Collectables features a pair of out-of-print Flatt & Scruggs LPs: Hard Travelin' Featuring the Ballad of Jed Clampett and Final Fling. Originally issued in 1963 and 1970, these 23 tracks are quite different in tone, but funneled through Flatt & Scruggs' arrangements they manage to combine traditional bluegrass and modern folk and make them their own. This is especially the case with the seven Bob Dylan tunes from Final Fling. By the way, "The Ballad of Jed Clampett" would end up as a number one hit as well as the theme song for The Beverly Hillbillies TV show. ~ Al Campbell
