Bluegrass Monday #2
Last week's offering was reasonably well received so as threatened I am going to subject you to a series or more realistically a mini- series albeit it one that will get a bit spurious pretty quickly.
But today there is a bona fide Bluegrass selection for you. So bona fide indeed that it calls itself Blue Grass Favorites.
it is a 1963 album from San Diego group The Scottsville Squirrel Barkers.
Re-released on Demon Records in 1998 primarily I suspect because the teenage mandolin player on the left of the above picture is none other that Chris Hillman of Byrds and Flying Burrito Brothers fame
Bernie Leadon of the Eagles also cut his teeth with this band but does not appear on this particular album
You don't get more Bluegrassy than this.
