Disc One covers the early days, from his sides with the Osborne Brothers to his formation of a band of his own -- once Martin gets people like banjo man J. Crowe and fiddler Gordon Terrythe sound tightens up and gets smoother, and Martin's singing grows in power and confidence.
Disc Two represents Martin and the Sunny Mountain Boys at their peak, at least in the studio -- these tracks display a range of singing, emotion, and restrained instrumental virtuosity that are almost overpowering. By that time, Martin had managed to incorporate the best components of Nashville's "countrypolitan" sound into his bluegrass work, and was reaping rewards both musical and financial. Disc Three is a direct continuation, with a growing body of fare that country-rock bands would later pick up from Martin and others.
His fourth distinct lineup of Sunny Mountain Boys are as good as any but the originals; different, with a more Cluster Pt.1 - Various - Bip_hop Generation Vol. 9, dexterous approach. This disc is dominated by the instrumental album Big and Country Music ; as it will probably never be issued as a CD, this material alone may justify the purchase of this box.
Disc Five goes into the mids, when Martin had a more obviously smooth and commercial sound than his earlier work -- the music is more sentimental and a little less impressive technically, but still worth hearing. The sound is all high quality, and the essay by Chris Skinker and the discography are Fidget - Bread & Circus in their own right.
