The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band

The Nashville equivalent of a quilting bee, this double album includes a more than generous supply of acoustic, down-home country music. Equally as striking is its unusually high-spirited tone of camaraderie. It doesn't hurt the mood any that the visiting quilters include such neighborly sorts as Emmylou Harris, John Hiatt, Johnny and Rosanne Cash, Bruce Hornsby, Ricky Skaggs, Paulette Carlson and John Denver.
