The integral early recordings of this seminal bluegrass band. Included is their classic "Foggy Mountain Breakdown," "Roll in My Sweet Baby's Arms," "Old Salty Dog Blues" and others. It's indispensable for bluegrass fans.
Flatt and Scruggs greatest songs ever were recorded in the late 40' and 50's for Mercury Records. Most of them were recorded for Radio stations during their Martha White days. For those who don't know Martha White Flour used Flatt and Scruggs to sell their Flour at the time. Sad thing is they don't have the Martha White jingle on this album.
