The Osborne Brothers: live in Germany

Pinecastle Records of Columbus, NC, announce that The Osborne Brothers: live in Germany 2 CD/DVD set is available in stores today - the first of several unreleased Osborne Brothers recordings that will be made available to the public in the next few years.

The rare archival footage was recorded on 30 July 1989 in Streekermoor, Germany, during a European tour with the Father of Bluegrass, Bill Monroe. Sonny Osborne's liner notes tell it how it is: 'This is just about as good as you will ever remember the Osborne Brothers.' Their hits 'Kentucky', 'Georgia mules and country boys', 'Midnight flyer', 'Tennessee hound dog', and 'Rocky Top' are among the 22 songs presented on two CDs, and 27 tracks on the DVD. Musicians with Bobby and Sonny Osborne include Terry Smith (bass), Terry Eldridge (guitar/vocals; now with the Grascals), and Steve Thomas (fiddle). Cuts from Live in Germany can be heard on the Osborne Brothers' online press kit.

The Osborne Brothers: live in Renfro Valley is being re-released for the first time on DVD today (3 April). Recorded on 6 August 1992 at the Barn in Renfro Valley, Kentucky, it features nine favorites from the Osbornes.
