This album was extremely popular in its day as it was the second of only two all-instrumental album from Bobby and Sonny Osborne, the first being completely out of print. It was recorded with the great Buddy Spicher on fiddle and other strings, Ray Edenton and Benny Birchfield on guitar, and Jimmy D. Brock on bass. Robby Osborne also adds drums on a few tracks.
It includes Sonny’s masterpiece medley of Scuggs tunes as the title track, plus Bobby’s classic mandolin number, Sure Fire, both definitional for the Brothers. Many of the others are tunes Bobby wrote, along with standards like Jesse James and I’ll Fly Away.
Bluegrass Concerto is a must have for any fan of The Osborne Brothers, and any serious students of the music.
