In September 1962, the Bluegrass group, then called, the Country Boys (Clarence White, Leroy Mack, Roger Bush and Billy Ray with guest fiddler Gordon Terry) entered the Sundown Recording Studios in Whittier, California with producers Carter and Ralph Stanley to record their very first album. Released in October 1963, the New Sound of Bluegrass America found the band renamed, The Kentucky Colonels. Thus the legend was born! Here for the first time since that original LP vinyl release (out of print since 1965) is the compact disc release of those original 14 songs. Three bonus tracks, never before released have been added to special limited release. With a great mix of vocals and original banjo and dobro instrumentals, it features Clarence White's first ever recorded lead guitar breaks, on two songs.
