Bela Fleck and the Flecktones
Greatest Hits of the 20th Century
Warner Brothers

On Bela Fleck and the Flecktones' Greatest Hits of the 20th Century (Warner Bros. 9 47301-2; 51:12), greatness comes from the sheer scope of this ultimate "roots" band's work. Fleck has led a dizzyingly original world beat party-from the weird mystery of "The Sinister Minister" and loping "Flight of the Cosmic Hippo," to the inside-out, bluegrass on acid "Yee-Haw Factor"-and he's done it all by wielding a banjo. Bonuses here are two previously unreleased tracks: the slide banjo-based "Road House Blues" and a brisk Indian rave dubbed "Shocktime."
