I'm Old Kentucky Bound - His Recordings 1938-1956 by Monroe, Charlie at Crooks Country. MPN: BCD16808. Hurry! Limited time offer. Offer valid only while supplies last. The other Monroe brother! Bill Monroe split from his older brother, Charlie, and went on to invent bluegrass music. This is the story of what
Charlie's voice was high, sweet and animated, radiating boundless good cheer that buoyed the spirits of his wartime audiences and sustained his popularity through the 1940s. Because Charlie's music has rarely been available since then, he's been unjustly consigned to historical neglect as little more than Bill's occasional sparring partner. Until now.
In 2002, Bear Family added all the Monroe Brothers material to a comprehensive Bill Monroe collection (BCD 16399). This collection is very much the companion to that highly-praised volume, and we may now enjoy and re-evaluate Charlie Monroe's recorded music from 1938 to 1956... including every recording for RCA/Bluebird and Decca. Charlie knew how to create inspired music on his own terms, and with this historic release, Bear Family completes its comprehensive Monroe series, making all the studio recordings of both Monroe Brothers available on state-of-the-art sets with skillfully restored sound, authoritative annotations, and original photographs.
The bonus 4th disc features live performances from 1955 and 1956 at the New River Ranch recorded by Mike Seeger.
