Bluegrass Bonanza

Bluegrass Bonanza



Proper's four-disc Bluegrass Bonanza collection focuses on the genre's early greats like Bill Monroe, the Stanley Brothers, Flatt & Scruggs, and the Delmore Brothers. Each of the four CDs -- String Band Roots, 1927-38; The Monroe Legacy, 1936-45; Early Bluegrass, 1944-50; and Classic Bluegrass, 1946-50 -- is packed with classics, making this budget-priced box a pretty decent purchase. [All four discs are also available separately.]
