About this item
Flagbearers in the early 1960s in the roots music revival, the Dillards reintroduced bluegrass into popular conciousness and carrying on the work of Earl Scruggs and Bill Monroe in reintroducing the music of Missouri and the American backwoods. By the time they released "Live!!! Almost!!!" in 1964 they had gone electric and were early progenitors of 'country rock'. They were an influence on the Byrds and many other rock acts of the late 1960s and these two Elektra label reissues are amongst their most definitive recordings.
