Editorial Reviews

Review

"Rosenberg and the late Wolfe document every detail of Monroe's work. The chronological listing of all his recordings is staggering, and though the narrative makes easy reading , this impressive, hard-bound 350-page tome will mainly appeal to those wishing to study blue-grass and its heritage under a college-owned microscope."--MOJO Dec 2007

A year by year account of the songs chosen and the people who played with Bill Monroe from the mid 30s to the early 1990s when he finally retired.
