Larry Sparks likes to say that he is "the youngest old-timer around," and there's more than a bit of truth to that. Throughout his long career, Sparks has stuck to what works, what he does best. He's never flirted with newgrass or jazz-grass or any other new-fangled style of bluegrass. Sparks has done things his own way, on his own schedule. He followed his vision and he's made a singular contribution to American music. In a world gone fake, Larry Sparks has kept it real. THE BEST OF LARRY SPARKS: BOUND TO RIDE presents 14 of Spark's finest and most requested recordings including "John Deere Tractor," "Tennessee 1949" and "A Face in the Crowd."
