Subject: Nitty Gritty Dirt Band rereleased CD

There was a "column" on NPR this morning about the Nitty Gritty Dirt band getting together with some "greats" in Nashville, and the album being newly released on CD - they apparently kinda dared folks like Doc Watson, Earl Scruggs, and others, to play with them... anybody hear of this? The album is called We Shall Overcome. I always thought of the NGDB as being fairly traditional, but apparently they really weren't? Other than this?

NGDB were always pretty traditional, though amplified, one of the Best two discl LPs ever produced and released. I still have a couple of copies, one pretty worn, one almost new that I saved. CD should be great, and should be what a lot of newcomers to the music would be looking for.

It's hard to believe that Mrrzy actually heard NPR call the album "We Shall Overcome."

It is called "Will The Circle Be Unbroken" and it came out in 1972. It is the biggest selling three-LP set in country music history.

It came out on CD in 1989 and has now been repackaged in a "Thirtieth Anniversay Edition."

Is this a new CD or a re-release of 'Will The Circle Be Unbroken'? As far being traditional NGDB started out as a jug band ala Jim Kweskin. And while being thought of as 'progressive' they were certainly rooted in trad music forms, though were lumped together with the 'L.A. Cowboy' bands of the early/mid 70's. Flying Burrito Brothers, Eagles, Mason Profit(though they were from Arkansas), NGDB and Poco all hit around the same 2-3 year period with Poco being the earliest. Buffalo Springfield and The Byrds, begat C.S.N.&Y. and Poco who influenced the aforementioned bands. Though some may have evolved on their own. NGDB were the ones who seemed to dig the deepest, rootswise.

My information is that it's a re-release of the original '72 "Will the Circle Be Unbroken," which was originally a 3-vinyl set, now on 2 CDs with 4 additional tracks, mostly background conversation rather than more songs.

If you don't have it already, this should be considered a purchase worth going sober for a week to afford it.

Peter.

Right on Peter! Alot of pickers can point to this LP as influencing them towards traditional music. Personally, the John Hartford 'Turn Your Radio On' LP w/Vassar, Tut, Norman and Randy was the one that did it for me, but W.T.C.B.U. extended my roots. And woodshedding on Doc's version of Tennessee Stud completely changed my guitar style. lol

As well as the original WTCBU album , I believe there was another volume of this fetauring people like Jerry Douglas, John Prine and John Denver!! amongst others. Not sure of the date of that 2nd project.

I wore out my vinyl of the original WTCBU and got a CD for about £10 last year..

Still brilliant stuff..

Information on both here. The re-released original one apparently only has Foggy Mountain Breakdwon as played by John McEuen as additional music, the other three new tracks are conversations & rehearsals. I haven't heard the re-release but my collection wouldn't be complete without the original.

The second one cama out about 10 years later and is pretty good too, Bruce Hornsby does a Bluegrass version of his "Valley Road" that is interesting. Newgrass Revival's "Don't You Hear Jerusalem Moan" is probably the best track on the CD. And Emmylou is on it, so it's worth having. All in all it's not up to the first one though.

original Remastered

Will the Circle be Unbroken Volume 2 was released in 1989 MCFD9001-1AL and is bloody wonderful. It has a brilliant version of The Bruce Hornsby song The Valley Road featuring BH -superb. It also doesn't have We shall overcome on it so I 'm hoping that it's a complete new album- Martin
