History Being Made

One of the most important and innovative musical adventures of the 1970s was the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band's album, Will the Circle Be Unbroken. It was a massive three-record (now 2-CD) set of collaboration with some of the greatest musicians of the bluegrass and country field. It opened whole new musical landscapes for many musicians and listeners.

They followed it up in 1989 with Vol. 2 and in 2002 with Vol. 3 (a 2-CD set.) All three, over the 30 years were amazing recordings of some of the great songs and musicians who created bluegrass, enhanced country music, and helped the music grow.

Here is a video of the recording of the title song in 1989 for volume 2. Watch history being made.

One more video, a brief documentary of the making of the original 1972 album.
