Description:

Sierra Records latest release is the compact disc of legendary 1964 recordings by Roger Bush, Billy Ray & Clarence White-THE TRIO!

These recordings were made in the summer of 1964, during the Kentucky Colonels national tour that included their triumphant appearances at the Newport Folk Festival and fame Gerde's Folk City. These rehearsal recordings took place at the Chicago, IL home of Leon and Wilma Houston without Roland White, in order to fulfill their concert commitment in Chicago but only as "The Kentucky Colonels TRIO". The importance of these recordings is that Clarence steps forward to play lead guitar breaks on 12 of 16 songs to cover Roland's absence. The other four tracks feature double banjo playing of Billy Ray and Roger. It further illustrates Clarence's trailblazing role in establishing that lead guitar solos could now take their place in a bluegrass band setting. Don Reno, George Shuffler and a few others only dabbled with that at this point in bluegrass music history, but Clarence rewrote the book!

Packaged in a full color jacket sleeve, every attempt was made to give these recordings clarity though recorded under less than desirable conditions as home recordings can sometimes be. However, the significance of hearing Clarence playing solo lead guitar on all these songs makes this release worth presenting.

In the decades that have since past, the addition of bluegrass lead guitar solos in the bluegrass band setting has become common place. Documenting this point in time in bluegrass music history further demonstrates the major contributions made by Clarence White!
