Nothing less than an essential part of every bluegrass collection. Three years after leaving Bill Monroe's seminal Blue Grass Boys in 1948, guitarist-vocalist Lester Flatt (1914-1970) and banjo virtuoso-vocalist Earl Scruggs (1924-2012) recorded the first selections that comprise Foggy Mountain Jamboree, one of the most important and widely influential albums in the history of American Roots Music. Spanning the years 1951 to 1955, Foggy Mountain Jamboree was made in Nashville under the watchful eye and empatheric ears of legendary producer Don Law, who saw to it that Flatt & Scruggs' Foggy Mountain Boys sounded as clean and clear as the water of a Tennessee mountain stream. In addition to their instrumental prowess, Flatt & Scruggs, plus their featured sidemen (including Curly Seckler or Everett Lilly on mandolin, Benny Marin, Paul Warren, or Howdy Forrester on fiddle, and Josh "Buck" Graves on dobro), harmonized beautifully, as the vocals throughout this collection attest.

"Widely regarded as one of bluegrass' most influential recordings, Foggy Mountain Jamboree introduced audiences -- more specifically radio listeners -- to the crystal-clear vocals and peerless musicianship of former Bill Monroe Bluegrass Boys Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs. Amassed between 1951 and 1955, the 12 tracks that made the cut served as a veritable blueprint for a genre that had been growing in popularity since the late '40s. While numerous Foggy Mountain Boys appear throughout -- Chet Atkins, Josh "Buck" Graves -- Flatt's fluid tenor and rhythm guitar work anchored the sessions, Scruggs' machine-gun banjo work provided the steam, and fiddler Chubby Wise, along with mandolin player Curly Seckler, carried the whole thing home without a care in the world. "Flint River Special," "Earl's Breakdown," and "Foggy Mountain Special" became part of American culture, celebrating both its trailblazing work ethic and spirituality with equal amounts of grace and hellfire. Foggy Mountain Jamboree is essential listening for anyone with even the most remote interest in bluegrass." - allmusic.com
