Bluegrass Pride!: 40 Bluegrass Classics

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steve Leggett
Jim O'Neal started Rural Rhythm Records in 1955, dedicating the imprint to preserving old-time and bluegrass music, and from the 1950s through the 1970s he released albums by some of the steadiest and most consistent performers in the bluegrass genre, including sides by Mac Wiseman, Don Reno, Red Smiley, Hylo Brown, J.E.
