Lester Flatt & Earl Scruggs - Foggy Mountain Jamboree 
Not too sure how this one is going to be received but I bloody like it so you might as well have a listen! It is what you might call 'real music'. no techno drumbeats, no synth'd sounds, no electric whatevers...music the way I love it most: Acoustic.
These two really know how to have a good ol' knees up. Reminds me of many a night spent in the pub after hours on the Scottish Island I lived on a few years back. those were nights you never forget!
This is the music to a million memories for a million people I have no doubt. To the rest of you, the ones who just cannot relate to it. Hmm. You definitely NEED to listen to it then because this music lifts you up and gets those bones dancin'! Hehe.
Lester Flatt & Earl Scruggs. Heard of them? Probably not. I educated myself in the name of research for you tonight so here are some choice quick links for you..
First off, a link to Earl scruggs biography on his website.
Now have a wee look here to read about his partner on the album, seemingly one of the all time BEST Bluegrass folk we could get to hear. It sounds like it that's for sure. I am reading the rest of his story now as I do this...must get this post up though so, go read it yourself and do the guy an honour. He isn't alive now incase you were wondering..
(If the above don't open in your realplayer, go HERE and try instead!)
(If the light aint green, let me know ok!)
The 'Jimmy brown' song has memories for me...whenever my old man got drunk at christmas (or any other time he felt like it) he would sit me on his knee and sing the song to me! I never expected to hear that one! Cool.
