Description

The new 3 CD TRIPLE PLAY COLLECTION Series includes our best-selling titles in a themed collection and individually packaged in mini-album CD wallets with an attractive CD slipcase.
This new TRIPLE PLAY COLLECTION Series contains the “real thing”, recorded by Bluegrass legends, such as Mac Wiseman, Reno & Smiley, Reno & Harrell, Don Reno, Red Smiley, Bill Harrell, Hylo Brown, Earl Taylor, Vassar Clements and pioneers Mac Martin, Tater Tate, Buck Ryan, Mutt Poston and Raymond Fairchild who have spent their lives staying true to their rural American roots.

The Appalachian region of the United States appears as a great system of hills, valleys and plateaus extending from Maine down to Alabama. The Southern Appalachian Highlands is where all the great Mountain music we know and love comes from. In this region of Southern Appalachia, (with some of the dense peaks towering up to 6,000 feet), is the back drop for the APPALACHIAN BREAKDOWN BLUEGRASS COLLECTION which contains songs that were passed down by Appalachian homesteaders who lived in almost isolation.

The oldest of these songs crossed the ocean in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, but all of them have endured, and they’re rendered here in performances that will endure. This collection is a vital part of the music that America gave to the world.

Each song is remastered from the original master tapes by Steve Hoffman, (a leading mastering engineer in the High End Audio market). The end results are some of the best sounding authentic Traditional Bluegrass music available today!

APPALACHIAN BRAKDOWN BLUEGRASS COLLECTION is the fifth title in the new TRIPLE PLAY COLLECTION series on Rural Rhythm that will be a must for listeners who cherish Traditional Bluegrass Music!
