Before now, the only Flatt &amp Scruggs likely to have graced your television set is their theme song and guest appearances on The Beverly Hillbillies. This new line of DVDs is a perfect example of how the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum taps into the extensive archives to make music treasures available to you, the public. Flatt &amp Scruggs are one of the most respected and most popular bluegrass bands of all time. Along with Bill Monroe, they shaped and propelled this great style into a widely successful and artistically praised musical format. They left a legacy of wonderful recordings and were star attractions on the Grand Ole Opry for many years. The Best of the Flatt &amp Scruggs TV Show series is drawn from programs that aired during the late 1950s and early 1960s. Never available before, these shows feature Flatt &amp Scruggs in their prime with their group the Foggy Mountain Boys, playing many of their most famous songs as well as many other bluegrass classics. The shows have a great down-home feel with their easygoing demeanor and warm humor, both of which complement the music to produce a thoroughly entertaining show. Volume 7 includes the earliest surviving Flatt &amp Scruggs Martha White show, which pre-dates the other existing shows in this series by about five years. This show underwent extensive restoration for this DVD release, and a special bonus feature explains the process used to restore the shrunken and deteriorated film. In addition to the musical performances, you will enjoy this series for the charming, period-piece commercials filmed live on the set, and the homespun comedy sketches with Cousin Jake Tullock and Uncle Josh Graves.
