(4-CD box set with one DVD and 52-page book) In 1975 and 1989, Bill Monroe and his Blue Grass Boys went to Germany. The 1975 shows contained in this set featured one of his best line-ups: Kenny Baker (fiddle), Ralph Lewis (guitar), Bob Black (banjo), and Randy Davis (bass). They played many of Monroe's best-known songs, including "Muleskinner Blues," "Footprints In The Snow," "Roll In My Sweet Baby's Arms," "Doin' My Time" and a medley with the E.L. Hillbillies. The 1989 tour came after several bouts of ill-health, but Monroe performed with all his old vigor. He played just one showdate in Germany, in Streekermoor. The 1989 songs include "The Old Brown County Barn," "Uncle Pen," "Cheyenne" and others.
