    There are a lot of cool stories about these sessions. I have all of the songs as well as some from similar subsequent albums. Here is one of a few good reads on the subject of "when the hippies came to Nashville"...

    Actually, I just noticed that this is from Volume 2. I think the first sessions were even cooler.

    Ricky Skaggs has, hands down, the best hair in history.

    No doubt. That's a list of who's who in country music back in 1971 when they recorded this one. These are the legends listed under the video:

    Nitty Gritty Dirt Band 1989, Jeff Hanna, Jimmie Fadden, Bob Carpenter, Jimmy Ibbotson, Johnny Cash, Roy Acuff, Bruce Hornsby, Paulette Carlson, Michael M. Murphey, Earl Scruggs, Roy Huskey Jr., Randy Scruggs, Ricky Skaggs, Chris Hillman, Jimmy Martin, Levon Helm, Emmylou Harris, John Hiatt, Roger McGuinn, Bela Fleck, Sam Bush, Mark O'connor, Rosanne Cash, Jerry Douglas, Chet Atkins, Marty Stuart, Vassar Clements, The Carter Family, John Prine.

    Edited: I said 1971 but according to the article that's when Volume One was done. Wad Shooter said this was from Volume 2 so I'm not sure when this one was done. Amazon has the CD for $12.

    Doc Watson is my favorite musician of all time. I’m glad I have a wife and daughter with “eyes of the prettiest brown” so I can play them shady grove.

    I think volume 3 is great also. It has Alison Krause so how could it suck.

    I saw doc at the new berry opera house shortly before he died. He was trying to avoid getting sick so he didn’t shake hands afterwards, but I am looking forward to flatpicking with him in heaven
