Josh Graves & Bobby Smith: Sweet Sunny South (1976)


This was a thrift shop find (99¢), in great shape, with some of the original shrink wrap left on it.

From the Independent: That the Dobro guitar is today indelibly associated with bluegrass music is a tribute to Uncle Josh Graves. His long-time association with Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs gave the instrument exposure at a time when bluegrass was developing an international following...

The instrumental "Juarez" is credited to E.B. Graves, "Jennifer Waltz" to J. Graves. Are they both Josh Graves (real name Burkett Howard Graves)? You do the research and let me know.
