Didn’t want to post this too soon after the Aroundabout post as visiting the store in Cheltenham was such an enjoyable experience. I bought this classic 3 album (2CD) set from Badlands in Cheltenham (which is also such a great store – small but filled to the beams with a wiiiiiiiide variety of great-priced CDs).
More information can be found on Amazon: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Will-Circle-Unbroken-Nitty-Gritty/dp/B000063686/ref=sr_1_1?s=music&ie=UTF8&qid=1374524177&sr=1-1&keywords=nitty+gritty+dirt+band .
I’ve played it over and over since I bought it. I am compelled to shout, “Yeeeeehaw!” throughout the tune each time I hear “Black Mountain Rag”. The version of “Dark as a Dungeon” is a masterpiece. Don’t wait 30 years like I did, buy it today!
I also bought George Jones’s “Beggar to a King” from iTunes for £3.99. 128 (count ’em) tracks. It’s going to take a while to listen to them all.
