This 2007 release gathers the early recordings of progressive bluegrass pioneers the Seldom Scene, including tracks from their 1970s Rebel Records albums, long before the tragic death of mandolinist and mainstay John Duffey. The songs crackle with wit and fire, and demonstrate why this band has remained at the forefront of roots music for so long
