The Earls of Leicester, a Grammy-winning tribute to legendary bluegrass artists Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs, is the realization of veteran Dobro player Jerry Douglas who assembled a bluegrass dream team and produced this 2014 release. Joining Douglas are five other accomplished Nashville musicians on guitars, banjos, mandolins and fiddles, as they revisit 14 timeless favourites from the Flatt and Scruggs songbook, maintaining the same emotional authenticity, instrumental expertise and vibrant creative spirit that made the original versions such enduring classics.

“Flatt and Scruggs were the major influence on me when I was growing up. I was around seven years old when I first saw them ... it had a huge impact on me. I remember the warmth of the auditorium, the smell of the popcorn, the outfits they were wearing. It’s still all very vivid to me and it’s still influencing me 50 years later.”

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
