Newport Folk Festival: Best of Bluegrass 1959-1966 based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
If you liked O Brother or the first Will the Circle be Unbroken album, you will like this. It is a good way to hear some of the fathers (and mothers) of bluegrass in one place. There is nothing jaw dropping but the performances are professional. The sound is good for its time but not up to modern standards.
