Overview

The format of 1995's Banjos That Destroyed the World holds. Sporting cover art suggestive of those hokey '60s alien movies -- the ones where military might smashes a giant green alien, thereby sating America's fears of death by Cold War button pushing -- Banjos That Destroyed the World, Vol. 2 features frenetic banjo and fiddle-led runs through a clutch of bluegrass classics and bluegrassed-up versions of pop faves. While the first volume featured a lot of Wynn Osborne, Vol. 2 is more varied, offering cuts from Lester Flatt ("Shuckin' the Corn" by himself; "Dixie Flyer" and "Drive Time" with the Nashville Grass), Don Reno ("Twelfth Street Rag"), and the Osborne Brothers ("Jesse James"). There are lighthearted and typically rapid-fire instrumental versions of "I Wanna Hold Your Hand" and "Lyin' Eyes" by the Nashville Superpickers -- they border on novelty, but are nonetheless well played. Vol. 2 is rounded out by an obligatory version of "Dueling Banjos."
