Title: The MGM Recordings
Artist: Forrester, Howard Howdy
Label: Spring Fed Records
UPC: 644167078528
Genre: Folk

Howdy Forrester supported some of country and bluegrass music's greatest luminaries. He logged time in Bill Monroe's Bluegrass Boys, worked as side man to 'Georgia' Slim Rutland, backed Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs, and worked with Roy Acuff as a Smoky Mountain Boy. Through all these partnerships Howdy's talent on fiddle shined through. Other than bluegrassers, Howdy counted as his admirers Benny Martin, the great contest fiddler, and Eugene Fodor, the great classical violinist. Howdy Forrester's technique, completely self-taught, could cross musical genres. This album, originally recorded in 1958 for MGM with backing musicians Ray Edenton, Junior Husky, Jimmie Riddle and Bashful Brother Oswald, is demonstrative of that fact. Easily jumping from breakdowns, to reels, to waltzes, this collection has Howard 'Howdy' Forrester at his finest.
