Earl Scruggs was THE pioneer of the banjo but you would never know it from these two mid Seventies all stars sessions marking his 25th year with Columbia Records. Earl seldom gets a chance to strut his stuff. There are guest stars too numerous to list (Billy Joel, Roger McGuinn, The Pointer Sisters, etc.) from all genres of music. Except for Johnny Cash, they clutter up the songs. Probably because Johnny and Earl were contemporaries, the numbers Cash sing on are highlights. It isn’t a bed set, it just could have been better. Earl’s last recording at the Ryman on Rounder shows what he and his sons could do, and it was recorded over 30 years later!

In light of the huge success of such artists as Bela Fleck, and Alison Brown in the banjo realm, this re-release is way past due. The Earl Scruggs Revue was a great, widely overlooked, band. The number of rock, folk,rhythm and blues, and country stars on this album should give one a quick glimpse of how respected the band was. Earl's sons were, and are great musicians in their own right, and their body of work is just partially represented in these two albums. The music is excellent on this album, a mesh of country, bluegrass, rock, and soul. I am so glad that these albums have been released because the greatest hits album The Revue released a few years ago left me unsatisfied. It was ok, but many, many good songs were left off. I wish ROCKING ACROSS THE COUNTRY would get re-released, for it is the best of all, but these two make me a happy camper. And you walk away knowing why Earl Scruggs is so revered.
