Following successful years with The Sunny Mountain Boys and Kentucky Mountain Boys, J.D. Crowe assembled his own band and released their first album in 1975, to critical acclaim. With Ricky Skaggs, Tony Rice, Jerry Douglas, and Bobby Slone, J.D. Crowe & The New South elevated bluegrass to a whole new level with this one. Covers of Fats Domino, Gordon Lightfoot, & Ian Tyson alongside traditional tunes as we wish J.D. a happy birthday!
