All Music Guide - Bruce Eder
Twenty-nine tracks drawn from the Dillards' first five albums originally on Elektra, which are otherwise unavailable.

From Back Porch Bluegrass we get five songs, including "Banjo in the Hollow" and "Dooley" another version of which they performed with Andy Griffith on his TV show, while Pickin' and Fiddlin' is represented by the bracing "Hamilton County Breakdown" and "Sally Johnson."

There are five numbers including the title track and the Beatles' "Yesterday" off of their 1970 release, Copperfields, and the legendary Wheatstraw Suite, from two years earlier, has nine songs, among them the group's loving covers of the Beatles' "I've Just Seen a Face" and Tim Hardin's "Reason to Believe."

    Neglected 60s Bluegrass Group

    This was one of my first purchases when I went to CD. Most bluegrass books pay more attention to "authentic" groups like Flatt and Scruggs. The Dillards nay have gone Hollywood but this collection shows them as fine musicians not afraid to venture into new territory. Ifyou like bluegrass that makes you smile, don't pass this by.

    Best of The Dillards!

    This is a must have of all bluegrass and country music lovers. A perfect mix of traditional 'back porch pickin' bluegrass and progresive bluegrass, as wellas some new sounding country music. If you like the dillards, this is the cd you need to have!
