I would like to throw this out to anyone who can factually back up their claim. I feel that every type of music has a heritage of sorts. Cajin from the south with a french background, R & B, and so on. Yet I have not really heard the origins of "Bluegrass". I know what we hear as the "Sruggs" style is more a variation of the original form of bluegrass. I hear bluegrass that appears to have celtic undertones. This makes me question what influences BG music has enbraced to how we know it today. We associate bluegrass with the Appalachian region but what is the connection? How did the term bluegrass come to be?
Now to availablity- I am somewhat diappointed that numerous albums that Earl Scruggs and or Flatt & Scruggs are not available in CD. I was somewhat surprised that a "LP" is still available. Are these LP's overstock and is there plans to convert all current recordings to CD? I find it odd that in this age of advanced audio capabilities and rapidly dying off of plastic records, and the equipment to play them, that a more sophisticated method of reproduction is not the norm.
