The Dillards & Bluegrass

The Dillards (Doug & Rodney) were at the forefront of "progressive bluegrass." They were experimenting with orchestral backing and use of drums and other "electric" instruments. Doug didn't like the approach and quit to hook up with Gene Clark. Rodney and the rest of the group released these two outstanding records (there are more Dillard albums in the standard bluegrass groove, just not listed here).

You might remember The Dillards when they portrayed "The Darlings" on that comfy show from Mayberry.
