Founded in California during 1966, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band have lasted longer than virtually any other country-based rock group of their era. Younger contemporaries of the Byrds, they played an almost equally important role in the transformation from folk-rock into country-rock, and were an influence on such bands as the Eagles and Alabama. The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band's beginnings lay with the New Coast Two, a folk duo consisting of Jeff Hanna (guitar, vocals) and Bruce Kunkel (guitar, washtub bass), formed while both were in high school in the early '60s.
This features "Wishing Well," "Hillbilly Hollywood, " "Waitin' on a Dark-Eyed Gal, " "From Small Things (Big Things One Day Come), " and other hits.
