Dave Apollon

Double Disc Chronicles Mandolin Virtuoso The Man with the Mandolin is a double CD set featuring the complete recordings (from 1930 to 1956) of the late great Dave Apollon. Mandolin fans of all genres will rejoice in over two hours of his music (19 of the 51 cuts on this epic project are previously unissued) packaged with a 20-page booklet of historical photos and text written by the project's producer, David Grisman. Says David, "Happily, this compilation puts back in circulation the rare recordings of a mandolin genius in his prime."

Apollon was the first "new world" mandolinist -- the first to technically master the instrument and the first to adapt this technique to all styles of music. "His unique style has influenced and inspired mandolinists from all musical walks of life," says David, "and the excellence of his playing and the diversity of his repertoire established new standards for mandolinists that inspire us to this day." Mastered utilizing the No-NoiseĈ process by Sonic Solutions, this collection of rare classic recordings is a must for all lovers of mandolin music.

*Mastered with HDCD process (High Definition Compatible Digital) for best audio resolution When I asked Jethro Burns who was the greatest mandolin player he ever heard, he answered without hesitation, "Dave Apollon." - David Grisman
