Mercury Sessions, Vol. 2 collects the remaining 14 tracks that Flatt & Scruggs recorded for Mercury Records between 1948 and 1950, including the original version of their classic song, "Foggy Mountain Breakdown." This music is generally considered the finest that the duo ever recorded, and a simple cursory listen will reveal why -- the duo's harmonies and instrumental interplay are simply astounding. Any serious bluegrass collection needs Flatt & Scruggs' Mercury Recordings, either in this format or in Mercury's single-disc The Complete Mercury Sessions.
