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.
More next Monday

  2. ........purchased from Missing records in your city! £3.99. I suspect you were there at the time

  3. By the way, I'm 5 tracks into Back To The River, (Bobby Bland), it might turn out to be the best compilation ever made.

    1. It's up there George - on a par with the previous two

  4. I'm partial to a bit of bluegrass and this is good stuff.
