Just got The Earls of Leicester new live cd. This is the best collection of 28 songs I’ve heard in a long time. If you like Flatt & Scruggs and @Archie I know you do, this is a must have CD.
I’ve been watching these guys a lot lately on Youtube. So classic.
Thanks @Roger113 I have All the Flat & Scruggs TV Show’s plus the Complete Mercury Sessions CDs, Carnegie Hall Live Recordings. Best of Flat & Scruggs, Foggy Mountain Banjo and a bunch of others. Will def check out the Earls of Lester.
Is “earls of Leicester” a play on flatt and Scruggs’ first names?
@K_G: Yes… “Leicester” is pronounced “Lester” in the UK (and probably in certain parts of the USA !)
@Roger113 : I’m going to get it for sure !
I knew the pronunciation because my brother follows English football (soccer) I was wondering if it was intentional to have it sound like that
Yes. It is essentially a Flatt & Scruggs tribute band.
