Review: Various Artists - Bill Monroe: 100th Year Celebration - Live At Bean Blossom

Live at Bean BlossomBy Joe Ross
A CD sampler of live cuts from a bluegrass festival can rarely capture the real feeling and spirit of those special musical moments when bands play their hearts out to thousands of fans. However, second best to actually being there, some favorite LPs of mine were those double disc sets with many professional bluegrass bands driving their sounds from a festival's stage. The 1973 LP called Bean Blossom comes to mind, and 1976 Ralph Stanley Live! From McClure, Va. is another winner.
