A kind of country companion to the Stills/Bloomfield/Kooper Super Session (without the tedious blues riffing), Muleskinner was a bluegrass supergroup stumbled upon by chance. Invited onto LATV alongside Bill Monroe, the quintet (ex-Byrd Clarence White, Richard Greene, Peter Rowan, Bill Keith and David Grisman) were left centre stage when Monroe’s bus conked out en route. The result was a one-off deal with Warners. The musicianship is impeccable (White’s Telecaster often defying belief), full of fevered mountain fiddles, brass-bell banjo and mandolin. A landmark ensemble jam.
