These were Earl Scuggs and Lester Flatt's prime years. They rode the crest of the folk boom, supplied the theme for 'The Beverly Hillbillies', and played Carnegie Hall. Through it all, their music remained remarkably pure and honest. The core of this set is six albums, all incredibly rare now: Songs Of Glory, Folk Songs Of Our Land, Foggy Mountain Banjo, Songs Of The Carter Family, Hard Travelin', Carnegie Hall and Gordon Terry's Square Dance Party. Fans who have treasured the 'Carnegie Hall' album will be amazed by the 19 unissued songs we've uncovered from that date. There are also singles not reissued until now and previously unissued recordings.
