Bluegrass music is hotter than ever, and Bear Family was reissuing Bluegrass back when no one else cared! This set originally appeared on one of our subsidiary labels in 1991. Now it makes a welcome return on Bear Family! The Lonesome Pine Fiddlers heard here feature several kings of Bluegrass at their peak: Bobby Osborne, Larry Richardson, Ezra Cline, Curley Ray Cline, Charlie Cline, Paul Williams, and
These sides take us back to the dawn of Bluegrass recording, 1950-1954, and capture early Bluegrass at its best: fiery picking, high lonesome harmonies, and glorious songs of heartbreak and redemption. Twenty-six titles include Lonesome Sad And Blue, Pain In My Heart, Dirty Dishes Blues
, as well as instrumentals like Five String Rag
and Lonesome Pine Breakdown
