We did it first... and we do it best! Now here's the second installment of our Mac Wiseman retrospective, including his ultra-rare recordings for Dot, Rural Rhythm, MGM, RCA, Churchill, and his own Wise Records! Backing musicians include the Osborne Brothers and Bluegrass stalwarts like Josh Graves ... all in top form! Photos from Mac Wiseman himself, photographer Les Leverett and a detailed interview bring this amazing period of Bluegrass history to life!

These were, in many ways, Mac Wiseman's golden years. He was bringing his music to a worldwide audience and recording many of the songs for which he became well known at home and overseas. This 4-CD retrospective of his career from 1965 to 1979 begins with his ultra-rare Canadian LP for his own Wise Records, featuring his first recordings of Molly Bawn and Bringing Mary Home. Then within the space of a few weeks he recorded a 20-song LP of vintage country, bluegrass, and folk songs for Rural Rhythm together with three conceptualized LPs for Dot, including a bluegrass LP with the Osborne Brothers. All are here complete, reissued for the first time.

After one single on MGM, Mac Wiseman signed a long-term contract with RCA, and was produced by the legendary Cowboy Jack Clement. Under Jack's guidance, he recorded songs like On Susan's Floor, It Rains Just The Same In Missouri, and Wrinkled Crinkled Wadded Dollar Bill as well as novelty songs like Johnny's Cash And Charley's Pride and You Can't Go In The Red Playing Bluegrass. At the same time, Mac Wiseman was recording LPs that featured the best of Nashville's new songwriters together with established favorites from long ago.
