Split Box Set Wednesday

Despite the urges to interrupt, today continues a series featuring some great music on the Rhapsody Just Added list last weekend.

You've heard of the split single. Well, today's feature takes things up a few orders of magnitude. "Lester Flatt, Earl Scruggs and the Stanley Brothers Selected Sides 1947-1953" is a split box set ninety four tracks long.

This is a remastered four-disc set of the original first recordings of these bluegrass greats. The first two discs are from the Stanley Brothers. The second two discs are from Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs. Today's playlist is a sampler from the Stanley Brothers portion. Tomorrow we'll serve up a sampler of the second half.
