THIS CD IS WORTH MORE THAN I PAID,
Rusty York is a great musician. One of his friends Mel Grubbs a friend of mine turned me on to Rusty. I purchased 2 cd's one for me and one for Mel Grubbs.This is a must for any collectors collection, Jerry Williams

Greg Hale

outstanding
Rusty York is one of the finest musicians on the planet.This is great stuff and will never be duplicated.

Charlie James


Can't beat 50's & 60's Bluegrass. Brings back memories of WWVA. This CD should be in every bluegrasser's collection!

Michael Werner

Real down home music. Doesn't get any better than this!

Paul Kesler

5 Stars for Content; 3 Stars for Sound Quality
Yes, the material is fantastic, as the other reviewers have mentioned. In fact, I'd rank at least 50 percent of the tracks on this disc with the best of Bill Monroe, the Stanleys, Flatt & Scruggs, and Reno & Smiley in their prime. Rusty York was one of the premier bluegrass banjoists of the 1950s -- and that's putting him up there with Earl, Don, Ralph, and J.D.. If you doubt it, just listen to York's blistering "Dixie Strut" --- it'll blast you right over the Appalachians! Where the disc falters is in the sonics. There's very noticeable surface noise and background "shushing" of some sort which mystifies me, considering these recordings were made in the late Fifties in Cincinatti. Hard to believe that in this great city there wasn't a studio that couldn't have put out a pristine-sounding product; nor is it plausible that the original masters -- if they still exist -- should have deteriorated to this level. My hypothesis is that the record label ("Jewel") got hold of some bootleg versions (or second-generation tapes?) and made their conversions accordingly. Either that, or York & the Boys were stuck with a lousy recording studio in the first place. In any event, given the terrific quality of the material, my hope is that a first-rate label like Bear Family ultimately gets a license to release these tracks with better sonics. All bluegrass fans deserve it.

Good songs and good music. Don't remember ever hearing him during my listening to Bluegrass music, but now know what I missed. I give him 5 stars for singing and the music
