Emerging from Bill Monroe’s band, Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs would go on to surpass the achievements of their mentor and become the best known bluegrass group in the genre’s history. In Earl they had the leading banjo player of all time, whilst Lester’s abilities on the guitar and mandolin perfectly complemented his partner. Add to this their writing and it is obvious why and how they became so popular. Foggy Mountain Jamboree was their first album, released in 1957 on Columbia. Although it did not chart at the time, it has become a steady seller in the decades following its appearance and a perfect introduction to bluegrass.
