I'd like to pose a question without ruffling too many feathers.
What in your opinion were Big Mon's best years on the mandolin. I have several compilation recording, some songs are fantastic and some are just plain rough.
Now please, please, please don't yell at me. I think he is the complete master of his instrument and he single handedly built the bluegrass sound from scratch but i'm of the feeling not all his recordings were top notch.
If someone wanted to dive into his style where would they go to get the best of the best.
Thanks to all in advance.
