First-ever vinyl reissue!

Pressed on "Root Beer" colored vinyl

The late, great guitarist Tony Rice grew up in a bluegrass family and learned to play at the feet of Kentucky Colonel and Byrd Clarence White. In the mid-‘70s, he joined J.D. Crowe's seminal newgrass group The New South, thus launching one of the most celebrated careers in modern bluegrass, folk, and acoustic string band music.

Along the way, Rice collaborated with David Grisman, Jerry Garcia, Bela Fleck, Alison Krauss, Chris Hillman, Doyle Lawson, Norman Blake...the list goes on. This record, 1988's Native American, is one of his most beloved, a beautiful blend of bluegrass, jazz, and folk featuring soaring interpretations of some of his favorite songwriters, like Gordon Lightfoot ("Shadows"), Joni Mitchell ("Urge for Going"), Phil Ochs ("Changes"), and Ian Tyson ("Summer Wages").

And on the more contemporary side, Mary Chapin Carpenter sings on the record and contributes a song ("John Wilkes Booth") about the Lincoln assassination, long an obsession of Rice. That's the great Vassar Clements on fiddle and Jerry Douglas on dobro, too...first-ever vinyl reissue, pressed on "Root Beer" colored vinyl and limited to 750 copies!
