Overview

This is certainly a special compilation that records the importance of Lester Flatt, Roland White and the band the Nashville Grass to a budding 12-year-old who played a burning mandolin. That boy would grow up to be Marty Stuart. With performances featuring Marty on mandolin and guitar, it is apparent from the start that Lester Flatt saw something special in Marty and made a place for him in his band. Mentoring is what it was called, it is not as common as it once was, but because of Flatt's interest, country and roots music has been doubly rewarded. Marty Stuart's connection to the past, his interest in the old timers who still play and his own talent make him a true musical treasure. This release documents the early years and provides a glimpse into the development of an artist of character and quality.
