Product Description

An absolute must for bluegrass lovers: Red Allen's definitive 1964 LP Bluegrass plus six unissued cuts and selections from four of his later Folkways albums! He (along with mandolin virtuoso Frank Wakefield) proves himself to be one of the greatest innovators in bluegrass as he plays and sings 28 tunes-over 72 minutes of influential, high 'n' lonesome sounds!

Amazon.com

Red Allen is the kind of singer who makes one realize whence the term "high lonesome" originates. Possessing an intense tenor voice, Allen often sings like a man possessed. This compilation of his work with Folkways Records showcases the uncompromising nature of bluegrass music at its best, as Allen invests each song with searing conviction. One listen to the opening "Little Maggie," featuring the virtuoso mandolin of Allen's longtime partner Frank Wakefield, and the listener is transported. The Folkways Years includes the landmark 1964 LP Bluegrass in its entirety plus outtakes from its sessions and a handful of later recordings. Each song is a masterpiece in miniature, absolutely flawless in its compression of experience and feeling into its three minutes. Bluegrass music has a few legendary masters by which all others are measured (Bill Monroe, Flatt & Scruggs, Stanley Brothers), and though Allen and Wakefield are part of bluegrass's "second wave," they must be held in nearly the same esteem as their better-known brethren. --Mike Johnson
