Various Artists: Sugar Hill Records: A Retrospective [Sugar Hill - $59.98]


Sugar Hill’s standing as a premier bluegrass label has existed for decades. This new four-CD anthology of material from the first 25 years, Sugar Hill Records: A Retrospective (1978-2003), shows why.  The anthology offers a large, idiosyncratic slice of the Sugar Hill pie. (There’s also a DVD of interviews with various musicians about the label, and five music videos.) The order of the songs makes no sense, and there’s no rhyme or reason for the selections, but who really cares? The music on the discs is all first rate, because Sugar Hill has continually put out nothing but high-quality music. Think of the collection as an old recipe baked by a cook with fresh ingredients. Come on and grab a big bite. Yum. [Amazon]
