AllMusic Review by

Along with living up to its title, CMH's World's Greatest Bluegrass Pickers, Vol. 2 is a worthy successor to the first volume. This 30-track collection is essentially a who's-who of bluegrass pickers, featuring such giants as Lester Flatt, Eddie Adcock, Joe Maphis, Benny Martin, Sonny Osborne, Jim & Jesse, Merle Travis, Johnny Gimble, and Don Reno, among others. There isn't a bad performance among them and there isn't a bad song, either -- in fact, there are a number of classics. As bluegrass samplers go, this is tops.
