In 1975, J.D. Crowe & The New South recorded one of the most influential bluegrass albums of all time. The self-titled release is known to most simply by its stock number: 0044. The New South lineup at this time is pointed to as one of if not the most talented band lineup in history. When J.D. Crowe, Tony Rice, Ricky Skaggs, Jerry Douglas, and Bobby Slone recorded their only studio album, they had no idea that forty years later, it would be pointed to as a defining moment in bluegrass’ history. This session will look at the impact and historical significance on the legendary album, and why it is still one of the most loved and most mysterious bluegrass records, forty years after its release. In addition to the panelists below, some surprise guests may contribute as well.
