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. To avoid excessive duplication of songs appearing on earlier volumes in this series, Volume 10 combines performances from several different shows dated 19611962. The many highlights include Columbus Stockade Blues, Theres More Pretty Girls Than One, Footprints in the Snow, New River Train, and gospel favorites Im Working on a Building (with guest Hylo Brown on lead), Bubbling in My Soul, and Somebody Touched Me. Even if you dont like bluegrass (and if you dont, whats wrong with you), you will enjoy this series just for the charming, period piece commercials filmed live on the set, and the homespun comedy sketches with Cousin Jake Tullock and Uncle Josh Graves.
