Overview

An expanded version of the Vern Williams Band's only Rounder album, containing the complete original LP as released in 1981 and nine additional cuts recorded by the group in 1980. A very solid representation of the group's repertory, from bluegrass standards like A.P. Carter's "Foggy Mountain Top" and "When the Springtime Comes Again" and Bill Monroe's "You Better Get Right," to Stephen Foster's "Oh, Susannah" and "Old Black Joe," as well as traditional numbers like "The Arkansas Traveler." It's nearly an hour of some of the best West Coast bluegrass music to show up since Chris Hillman gave up the mandolin and the Hillmen in favor of playing bass with the Byrds, all very nicely remastered and thoroughly annotated.
