One of my favorite bluegrass musicians to listen to is Jimmy Martin. I was fortunate to have seen perform a few times before he passed.
The Jimmy Martin 20 Greatest Hits album truly is a great album with great versions of Freeborn Man, Truck Driving Man, Uncle Pen, Rollin’ In My Sweet Baby’s Arms, Blue Moon of Kentucky, Honey You Don’t Know My Mind, Widow Maker, I Know You’re Married But I Love You Still, Foggy Mountain Breakdown, Bluegrass Singing Man, Taylor Made Sally Good, and Knoxville Girl. Highly recommended!
Other great tracks (not on the 20 Greatest Hits album) I would also recommend include:
Tom Piazza wrote a really good book about Jimmy Martin entitled True Adventures with the King of Bluegrass: Jimmy Martin. It’s a quick read and is entertaining through and through.
