The Blue Ridge Buddies

Here's a group that not too many know anything about. These folks were from in and around Danville, VA. To my knowledge, these are the only commercial recordings that they made. I'm assuming that these sides were recorded somewhere around 1962. Some of you may recognize the bass player, Allen Mills, as the band leader of the popular bluegrass band, The Lost and Found.
