In 1972, California folk-rockers the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band recorded what today might be regarded as the precursor to the jillion-selling pop-bluegrass crossover phenomenon that was the 2000 soundtrack to O BROTHER WHERE ART THOU. They gathered together with some of America's finest (and oldest) bluegrass, folk, and country musicians for a generational summit/musical history lesson that reached both the country and pop audiences. In 1989, the Dirt band released a well-regarded, similarly constructed second volume, and on the 30th anniversary of Volume One, they have an entirely successful third go at it.
The fare on offer is stictly old-timey, as one would expect/hope; even if only a handful of the tunes are strictly traditional, most go back to the glory days of American roots music. Seasoned bluegrass veterans like Doc Watson and Jimmy Martin are on hand to mix up with the Dirt Band as well as more contemporary (but equally tradition-minded) country artists such as Dwight Yoakam, Alison Krauss, and Jerry Douglas. As with the previous volumes, the spontaneous, rough-and-ready production gives an appropriately authentic, back-porch feel to the impressive and generous (28 songs) compendium of great American roots music on offer here.
