Muleskinner Live / Various
The first super group of bluegrass music, "Muleskinner", as they were later to be called, made their first appearance ever on what was the first nationally televised program of bluegrass music. Taped before a live in studio audience in Hollywood CA in February 1973, Clarence White, David Grisman, Richard Greene, Peter Rowan and Bill Keith reunited after years of individually playing rock and roll music in this ground breaking, once believed lost television program for the first time exclusively on this Sierra DVD. Originally released on Sierra VHS tape in 1992, this magical television performance represents the entire edited final TV broadcast from the original 2" analog color videotape transferred direct to digital. The results are spectacular! Playable in ALL Regions, the package contains the original liner notes, rare photos and the reproduction of the original VHS cover graphics. This legendary group of would influenced a new generation of bluegrass musicians from Bela Fleck, Mark O'Connor, Marty Stuart, Ricky Skaggs to Alison Krause, Nickel Creek and the "O' Brother" generation. After making brief stage appearances a month later followed by one studio album and finally the untimely death of Clarence White in July 1973, Muleskinner never performed again as a group. This DVD is dedicated to Clarence White, who was a virtuoso human being and guitarist.
