ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Born and raised on the Green Valley Ranch near Dawn Texas in 1926,
Thomas Edward "Edd" Mayfield and his brothers Herb and Smokey were among the first musicians on the plains of West Texas to embrace this basically eastern mountain-born bluegrass music. Like many others in the region, they gained a heightened awareness of the outside world with the introduction of the radio.

In 1950 or '51, Edd received a message to call Bill Monroe. Monroe, remembering Edd's singing and playing skills, had called to offer him a job in his band. It was a terrible dilemma for the group, but after some discussion they decided that Edd should not pass up this opportunity. This was to be the first of three stints for Edd under Monroe's tutelage.
