"THE BEST OF BLUEGRASS"

"THE BEST OF BLUEGRASS":
The Best of Bluegrass, Vol. 1 is an excellent 22-track sampler of the genre, containing most of the most famous songs in bluegrass, including the Country Gentlemen's "Can't You Hear Me Calling?," and the Lonesome Pine Fiddlers' "Blue Moon of Kentucky," Flatt & Scruggs' "Roll in My Sweet Baby's Arms" and "Foggy Mountain Breakdown," and the original version of "Duelin' Banjos," which was initially released under the title "Feudin' Banjos" by Arthur Smith and Don Reno. As a one-stop introduction, it's hard to beat this collection. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Allmusic
