REBEL RECORDS DELIVERS 10 DEEP CATALOG RECORDINGS TO GLOBAL RADIO

Posted on April 21, 2020

"Here at Rebel Records we are excited to be collaborating with AirPlay Direct to not only share new music from Rebel Records, but also to get some of our most beloved titles from our deep catalog out to global radio! To kick off our partnership, we are presenting ten essential albums and artists that exemplify Rebel Records.



One cannot tell the story of Rebel Records without telling the story of Ralph Stanley. My Life and Legacy is an 18-song collection featuring many of Dr. Stanley’s most beloved recordings – and includes a previously unreleased bonus track as well!

The Country Gentlemen and Rebel Records came of age together and 25 Years is a “best of” collection that commemorated the 25th anniversary of the Country Gentlemen’s first show.

John Duffey, a founding member of the Country Gentlemen, would later head up another integral D.C. area bluegrass band, The Seldom Scene. The Best of the Seldom Scene, was the first CD Rebel issued in the mid-1980s. Tony Rice is widely considered the greatest bluegrass guitarist of all time and his album Guitar made pickers everywhere sit up and take notice.

Larry Sparks & The Lonesome Ramblers have recorded over 30 albums with Rebel, and Classic Bluegrass is a compilation of some of his most well-known titles. At age 17, Keith Whitley and Ricky Skaggs recorded Second Generation which was released in 1971, and to this day remains one of Rebel’s most consistently selling albums. Del McCoury’s Classic Bluegrass features the best material from the three albums he recorded for Rebel fronting his first band, The Dixie Pals.


J.D. Crowe is recognized as one of the finest banjo players and band leaders in bluegrass and Blackjack is one of the most memorable and instrumentally tight bluegrass recordings of its time. Nearly a decade after signing with Rebel, the Lonesome River Band hit its peak when it recorded Carrying The Tradition, which won the coveted IBMA Album of the Year Award in 1992. Rounding out this batch of essential Rebel recordings is another IBMA Album of the Year winner, It’s a Long, Long Road by supergroup Blue Highway."
