The Best of the Flatt & Scruggs TV Show series is drawn from programs that aired during the late 1950s and early 1960s. Never available before, these shows feature Flatt & Scruggs in their prime with their group the Foggy Mountain Boys, playing many of their most famous songs as well as many other bluegrass classics. The shows have a great down-home feel with their easygoing demeanor and warm humor, both of which complement the music to produce a thoroughly entertaining show.
Volume 6 features two programs from May 1962 with the group in front of a mock log cabin rather than the usual general store backdrop. Highlights include “Keep on the Sunny Side,” “We’ll Meet Again Sweetheart,” “On the Rock Where Moses Stood” (a.k.a. “Crying Holy Unto the Lord”), Paul Warren’s fiddle instrumental “Cacklin’ Hen,” and the humorous “Baby You Gotta Quit That Noise.”
Even if you don’t like bluegrass (and if you don’t, what’s wrong with you?), you will enjoy this series just for the charming, period piece commercials filmed live on the set, and the homespun comedy sketches with “Cousin Jake” Tullock and “Uncle Josh” Graves.
