Anthology (2CD) by Nitty Gritty Dirt Band



Continuing the celebration of the legendary Americana band's 50 years of making music together, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band's extraordinary career is encapsulated in the new retrospective two-disc set, Anthology, due September 29 via Capitol Nashville/UMe.

Beginning with 'Buy For Me The Rain,' their first track from their 1967 self-titled Capitol records debut, and culminating with 'The Resurrection' from their most recent studio release, 2009'S Speed of Life, the all-encompassing collection is an extensive 39-track career overview, which includes illuminating liner notes from renowned journalist and author Holly Gleason.

Hanna says, 'We really wanted this collection to historically reflect our band's timeline, but in addition to that, felt like it was important to include deeper cuts ('Fish Song,' 'Cosmic Cowboy') and instrumentals ('Randy Lynn Rag,' 'Midnight at Woody Creek'), and fan favorites ('Ripplin' Waters,' 'Bayou Jubilee').
