The only bluegrass super group featuring Clarence White, David Grisman, Richard Greene, Peter Rowan and Bill Keith. For progressive bluegrass aficionados, Muleskinner Live — Original Television Soundtrack is something of a watershed event. Originally broadcast on public television in the late ’70s, the documentary captured the bluegrass supergroup at the peak of its powers in front of a live studio audience in Hollywood. Muleskinner’s lineup was a knockout, boasting the talents of Clarence White, David Grisman, Peter Rowan, Bill Keith, and Richard Green, so it should come as little surprise that this live record is a powerhouse, illustrating everything that was right about progressive bluegrass. All nine songs that were originally aired on the TV program are here, along with four songs that were edited for broadcast. The show originally aired on PBS stations September, 1973. The success of the show garnered Muleskinner a contract with Warner Records. The show was supposed to include the legendary Bill Monroe but his bus broke down so Muleskinner played without him. Clarence White, who was also a member of the Kentucky Colonels and the Byrds, was tragically killed 5 months after this show was recorded.
