AllMusic Review by

Although it builds on a traditional base drawn largely from the string bands of the previous century, bluegrass as a distinct musical form is no older than rock & roll, arriving in the 1950s and riding the crest of increased electrical amplification technology, which meant individual players could finally be heard clearly. This set collects 30 bluegrass tracks from familiar names like Ralph Stanley, Doyle Lawson, and J.D. Crowe.
