Description
This compilation album of gems by the progressive bluegrass band the Country Gentlemen was released by Rebel Records in 1980. The 24 tracks focus on the renowned, award-winning lineup of Eddie Adcock (banjo, vocals), John Duffey (mandolin, vocals), Tom Gray (bass, vocals), and Charlie Waller (guitar, vocals). Selections include "Copper Kettle," "Redwood Hill," "Devil's Little Angel," "This Morning at Nine," "The Likes of You," "Letter to Tom," "Come and Sit by the River," "Where I'm Bound," "Teach Your Children," "Matterhorn," "Two Little Boys," "Little Bessie," "Many a Mile," "I Am Weary, Let Me Rest," and "500 Miles."

"Old-time songs involve predominately rural concerns: bootlegging, crop failures and fratricide. Bluegrass, on the other hand, was an amalgamation of some of Bill Monroe's favorite sounds. He drew from the old-time fiddle playing of his uncle Pen Vandiver, but he also incorporated elements of the blues and swing…. It is no small accident that bluegrass and bebop developed at roughly the same time, though for different cultures. What the Country Gentlemen … brought to the table was not so much a memory of good ol' days as a stark reaction to the world as it was."—Pop Matters
