This bluegrass TV concert is legendary, as one of the few videotaped performances of the late guitarist Clarence White.
Supposedly the show was to star bluegrass legend Bill Monroe, but his tour bus broke down in Stockton CA and he was unable to make it to L.A. in time for the taping. The musicians who were already there had 3 hours to rehearse.
1. New Camptown Races @ 0:18 2. Dark Hollow @ 2:14 3. Land Of The Navajo @ 5:10 4. Blackberry Blossom @ 10:56 5. Knockin' On Your Door @ 13:33 6. Opus 57 In G Minor @ 16:46 7. Red Rocking Chair @ 18:54 8. The Dead March @ 22:21 9. Orange Blossom Special @ 25:05 (Cut)
The guys enjoyed playing together so much they formed a band called Muleskinner and cut an album. The tragic death later that year of Clarence White (run over by a drunk driver while putting away his gear after a show) would end the band. Peter Rowan and David Grisman would both go on to make major impact in the roots/acoustic music scene.
