The Essential Bill Monroe and His Blue Grass Boys 1945-1949
by Bill Monroe
Released: Oct 1992
Mostly compiled of alternate takes from the original recordings, this 40-song collection serves as a seminal introduction to the man people have come to know as the "Godfather of Bluegrass." The weepy and soulfully-sung "Blue Moon of Kentucky" is as integral to the foundation of bluegrass and string band music as Bill Haley's "Rock Around The Clock" is to rock 'n roll.
