"HAND-PICKED" - 25 Years Of Bluegrass on Rounder Records

"HAND-PICKED" - 25 Years Of Bluegrass on Rounder Records: Over the course of two CDs, Hand Picked: 25 Years of Bluegrass runs through Rounder Records' back catalog, featuring selections from Ricky Skaggs, Béla Fleck, Alison Krauss, David Grier, Del McCoury, David Grisman, and others. The album gives a good portrait of Rounder's artists, as well as a good sense of bluegrass during the '70s, '80s, and '90s, if not a thorough history. (Allmusic)trax CD 1:
