Seldom Scene - The Best of the Seldom Scene
The Best of Seldom Scene, Vol. 1 contains a sampling of the progressive bluegrass band's first four albums on Rebel Records.

Dry Branch Fire Squad - Hand Hewn
Great albums from Dry Branch Fire Squad are nothing new. The band's lineup has changed slowly but fairly constantly over its 25-year history, but the commitment of its leader, mandolinist, and singer Ron Thomason to the various strains and traditions of old-time and bluegrass music has never flagged.
