Clarence White 

Clarence White guitar playing is sort of like a combination of three of my favorite guitarist, Jerry Garcia, Roy Buchanan, and James Burton. He plays with the melody of Jerry, the tone and brilliance of Roy, and the conciseness and sweetness of James. Now that is saying something. 

Of the three he had the most in common with Jerry Garcia. They both started in bluegrass before becoming electric guitar masters. They also both played in a David Grisman / Peter Rowan line-up in the 1972 - '73 period, with Clarence on guitar with Muleskinner, and Jerry on banjo with Old and in the Way. Their approach to playing also have some similarities with a melodic approach and the way they sound like their chasing the vocal line. Another trait they share in common is their non-stop playing. I have a Jerry Garcia section that details his solo work, seemingly whenever the Grateful Dead weren't on tour Garcia played with one of his side bands. Likewise, Clarence was non-stop with his musical endeavors. 

We're still working on our Clarence White section, so stop by for updates. It is not the final product. Until then, we've put together some of Clarence White's best releases. We've attempted to categorize the select discography, primarily what is readily available and his best material in segments, though with so many side projects there is crossover.

"Clarence White-Flatpick Collector's Extended, Limited Edition 2CD Set" is a follow up to Sierra's previous "Clarence White-33 Acoustic Guitar Instrumentals" CD. This special two CD set is limited to 1000 copies. The commercially released, edited single CD version is also available on Sierra (CD1024) but it only contains the songs from the first disc of this special two CD set. This special Collector's Edition has the additional Disc 2 of rarer Clarence White guitar instrumentals from tape recordings just discovered only two months ago! 

On the first disc (Rural Rhythm/Sierra Records release and on this Collectors Edition) Clarence is featured on recordings from the Spring of 1964, made within weeks of the now famous "Appalachian Swing" sessions. This first disc closes with a 1967 performance of Jimmy Bryant's "Laughing Guitar" and finally, one of Clarence's last recordings before his death in 1973, the studio recording of "Alabama Jubilee" that appeared on the long out of print Sierra vinyl LP, "Silver Meteor". 

The second disc, which is only available in this special Collector's Edition, begins with the original 1970 tapes recorded in true two channel stereo featuring Clarence on lead guitar and Roger Bush on rhythm guitar, during the time Clarence was a member of the Byrds. This is followed by three examples of Clarence's guitar instruction tape that he made for his guitar students. Yes, Clarence did give guitar lessons back in the early 60s. You hear Clarence play a flatpick tune, slowed down, as he picks it note for note then the same tune at "normal" speed. This special limited, second disc closes with instrumental recordings made in Spring of 1973, with the last track being a special surprise giving the listener a glimpse of what is in the works for the future! 

This 2 CD set is packaged in a special 5-Color bronze metallic, Digipak tray case with a resealable protective cover unlike the commercial release which is in a standard plastic jewel case. Exclusive to Sierra Records, it will be sold out soon, so order now, first come, first serve.

Sierra Records Description:

In September 1962, the bluegrass group, then called, "The Country Boys"; Clarence White, Leroy Mack, Roger Bush and Billy Ray (Roland was overseas serving in the military) 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. That's right, The Stanley Brothers, were recruited by executive producers, Joe Maphis and Johnny Bond to produce this album with Carter Stanley also doing some of the engineering as well. Released in October 1963 the Briar International label titled, "The New Sound of Bluegrass America", the band was 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. It is packaged in it's original album cover and liner graphics but in a mini retro CD jacket. It includes an folded insert that contains song lyrics, additional notes on the sessions showing rare photos of the band and a mini color poster of that band on the folded back.

Product Description:
Marking the 40th Anniversary of the "Sergeant Pepper's" of all bluegrass albums, the Kentucky Colonels classic "Appalachian Swing!" with three bonus tracks is one of the most influential albums in all of bluegrass music, primarily because of the stunning guitar playing of Clarence White and the musical interplay with brother, Roland White's mandolin.

Mastered by renowned audio engineer, Steve Hoffman, and released for the first time in this audiophile edition,
the original 1964 World Pacific Records album by the Kentucky Colonels was subsequently released in the early 90's on another label, but it suffered from a number of problems both in audio quality and production. Now our joint venture friends at Rural Rhythm/S&P Records have expanded that release to include three bonus tracks featuring the instrumental performance of Clarence and Roland White along with Billy Ray Lathum on the other World Pacific album at the time, "Tut Taylor-Dobro Country".

This "new re-released" for the first has been mastered directly from the original World Pacific 3-track audio masters and you will finally hear picking like it was meant to be heard! With compact disc liner notes by Sierra Records' John Delgatto, hear Clarence White's vibrant, innovative flat-picking which helped pioneer a new style of bluegrass. The sound was revolutionary upon its release in May of 1964 and the music still sounds alive, even timeless, because of the strength of Clarence White's vision and talent. Special color booklet (BK 3001) with detailed information on the Appalachian Swing! session is also available.

Rick Nelson's first two country albums on the old Decca label, Bright Lights & Country Music/Country Fever, were reissued together as a two-fer.

Bright Lights and Country Music sessions were recorded in December 1965 and Feb. 22 - 24, 1966, which had different bands. The December sessions was a James Burton line-up,  and Feb. 1966 a was Clarence White line-up. According to the Rick Nelson box-set Legacy credits Bright Lights and Country Music appears to include all of the Clarence material recorded and none of the seven songs record in December 1965. 

Meanwhile, Country Fever sessions were recorded in April 1967 and had 17 songs recorded. Of them, 12 are included on the album. This Rick Nelson band featured James Burton on lead guitar.

As a side note, both Clarence White and James Burton went on to play some of the best country rock with Gram Parsons, but at different times. Clarence with The Byrds and James on the two solo Gram Parsons albums. 

The Rick Nelson county albums noted below have rotating personnel, but a mainstay is one of the top pedal steel guitarist Tom Brumley from Buck Owens' band. Others members include Randy Meisner from Poco, and The Eagles, Linda Rondstat (her early Capital albums), and several others played with the New Riders at different times.

Sierra Records Description

Nashville West was one of the first and best pre-Byrds country-rock bands featuring the late, great Clarence White with some truly trailblazing electric guitar playing. Guitar Player magazine proclaimed it one of the top "20 Essential Country " albums of all time. Now with an improved sound quality, this compact disc has four additional unreleased bonus tracks taken from the original live club recording, newly unearth band photos and new comments by country music star Marty Stuart. Clarence is joined by Gene Parsons, drums and vocals Gib Guilbeau, guitar and vocals and Wayne Moore, bass and vocals. The band has been credited with laying "the foundation for the Byrds' country rock phase and the music of Gram Parsons, Emmylou Harris and the Eagles" (Guitar Player). Guitar players still marvel at Clarence White's playing.

The Byrds
We've highlighted some of live recordings by the Byrds with Clarence White in the band. This is Clarence most "exciting' work with The Byrds. If I had to select one of the referenced live recordings, I go with Live At Royal Albert Hall. It is packed to capacity, includes the early classic hits and Dylan covers as well as some great later tracks, my favorite, "Chestnut Mare." It offers  an uninterrupted concert flow, which is a big charm of the release, at a time when the band was in its prime as a live unit. The sound quality is good, but if you want to crank it up, it is a bit lacking. 

At a later time, we'll add the studio releases and details of some of their box sets. Both of their boxes are four discs, There Is A Season adds a DVD. I think the music flows better by getting individual releases. 
My A list
*Sweetheart of the Rodeo 
*A live release.

Sweetheart of the Rodeo Legacy Deluxe Single
I have a review of Sweetheart of the Rodeo  in my Gram Parsons page and will direct you to that for more details. It has commentary on both the 2 disc and single disc options.

To add to it, Clarence White played on that album as a studio musician. This was before he became an official member of the Byrds. If you want the most similar material from Clarence White’s catalog to Sweetheart, go with Nashville West

I sometimes think of Sweetheart of the Rodeo as a combination of Nashville West and the Flying Burrito Brothers first album. All three are great. Of them, Sweetheart of the Rodeo is the best overall release, great singing, electric guitar and pedal steel. The Flying Burrito Brothers album, especially their first one, offers the best original song writing, must hear singing, and pretty good pedal steel. Nashville West offers a really, really solid band paving the foundations of Country Rock throws in some blues, with some great electric guitar work.

Product Description
From their earliest days as 12-string-wielding folk-rockers, to the thrilling psychedelic excursions of their raga-rock period to their 1968 birthing of country-rock, the Byrds were always accorded a hero's welcome in England. What better place to record founding Byrds member/guitarist/singer Roger McGuinn's new version of the band--featuring fretboard ace Clarence White, bassist Skip Battin and drummer Gene Parsons--than London's Royal Albert Hall! 

Rescued from a tape that had sat forgotten in McGuinn's climatized garage for decades, this stellar 1971 set, featuring live versions of the current band's studio faves ("Lover of the Bayou," "Chestnut Mare") as well as adventurous reworkings of Byrds classics ("Mr. Tambourine Man," "My Back Pages," "Eight Miles High," "So You Want to Be a Rock `n' Roll Star") might be the most accurate and stirring live performance yet of the legendary Los Angeles combo. By 1971, the guitar interplay of McGuinn and White had become a jaw-dropping highlight of their live performances, as had their stripped-down, acoustic mini-set and peerless four-part vocal harmonies. As McGuinn, in typically understated fashion, says of this new Sundazed release, available now on both compact disc and as a high-definition vinyl, double-gatefold LP: "It was a great night, so I'm happy there's a record of it!" 

Sierra Records Description:

Muleskinner

Wikepedia
Muleskinner was an American bluegrass band, consisting of Clarence White (guitar, vocals), Peter Rowan (guitar/vocals), Bill Keith (banjo), Richard Greene (fiddle) and David Grisman (mandolin). Muleskinner formed to play on television, resulting in a live recording that was, for many years, a lost bluegrass legend before a copy was found and released. The band was an all-star lineup of young bluegrass stars, chosen to play with Bill Monroe, the originator of the genre, in the hopes of mainstream success. The attempt failed, however, to cross over, and the first release of the recorded was quickly out of print.

Combining elements of folk and rock, Muleskinner's A Potpourri of Bluegrass Jam is an essential addition to any collection.

MULESKINNER - LIVE : ORIGINAL TV SOUNDTRACK - Clarence White, David Grisman, Peter Rowan, Richard Greene, Bill Keith ..CD 

This is the historic, believed lost, soundtrack of the first ever nationally televised program of bluegrass music by this legendary group that influenced a new generation of bluegrass musicians. Taped before a live in-studio audience at KCET-TV, Hollywood, this 13 song compact disc contains the nine songs from the original televised PBS program. Four bonus songs, edited from the final TV broadcast, have been unearthed and are heard here on this CD. Muleskinner Live is a bluegrass classic!

DVD - Available through Sierra Records
Performances: NEW CAMPTOWN RACES / DARK HOLLOW / LAND OF THE NAVAJO / BLACKBERRY BLOSSOM / KNOCKIN' ON YOUR DOOR / OPUS 57 IN G MINOR / RED ROCKING CHAIR / THE DEAD MARCH / ORANGE BLOSSOM SPECIAL

Sierra is proud to announce the release on DVD of it's 1992 video,"Muleskinner- Live" and is now in stock. This Sierra DVD release is exclusive to Sierra and not available from any other retail or mail order company in the USA. The first super group of bluegrass music, "Muleskinner", as they were later to be called, made their first appearance ever on what was the first nationally televised program of bluegrass music. Taped before a live in-studio audience in Hollywood CA in February 1973, Clarence White, David Grisman, Richard Greene, Peter Rowan and Bill Keith reunited after years of individually playing rock and roll music in this ground breaking, once believed lost television program for the first time exclusively on this Sierra DVD. Originally released on Sierra VHS tape in 1992, this magical television performance represents the entire edited final tv broadcast from the original 2" analog color videotape transferred direct to digital. The results are spectacular! If you own the older VHS tape version, you will be amazed at the audio and video quality afford by this DVD, playable in ALL Regions. Inside is contained the original liner notes, rare photos and the reproduction of the original VHS cover graphics. This legendary group of would influenced a new generation of bluegrass musicians from Bela Fleck, Mark O'Connor, Marty Stuart, Ricky Skaggs to Alison Krause, Nickel Creek and the "O' Brother" generation. After making brief stage appearances a month later followed by one studio album and finally the untimely death of Clarence White in July 1973, Muleskinner never performed again as a group. This DVD as well as the companion original soundtrack Sierra compact disc is dedicated to Clarence White, who was a virtuoso human being and guitarist.

(Production Note) This is the exact same program that was original released on Sierra VHS in 1992, 30 minutes in length but in fair superior quality both in picture and sound. You be amazed to see the clarity as if it was video taped yesterday! As stated in the original notes to both the VHS release and the CD soundtrack of the program, the additional songs that appear on the CD only existed on an audio tape made of the program. The videotape of those performances were erased when the program was edited for broadcast back in 1973. Regrettably, the extra songs were never saved and thus did not appear on the VHS release or now on the DVD.)

Old And In The Way
Old And In The Way is a band very similar to Muleskinner. We have those reviews in our Jerry Garcia Band section, but provide a high level orientation below too.

Old and in the Way
Jerry Garcia - Banjo and vocals 
David Grisman - Mandolin and vocals 
Peter Rowan - Guitar and vocals 
Richard Greene - Fiddle (3-2-1973 to 5-25-1973) 
Vassar Clements - Fiddle (6-5-1973 to 4-28-1974) 
John Kahn - Acoustic bass 

Old and in the Way was a bluegrass supergroup in the 1970s. The group performed traditional tunes such as Pig in a Pen as well as bluegrass-flavored versions of The Rolling Stones' Wild Horses and Peter Rowan's Panama Red.

Old and in the Way's debut album Old and in the Way which was released in 1975 was the top selling bluegrass album for decades. The group, sans Jerry Garcia and John Kahn, released a reunion album in 2002, called Old and in the Gray.

David Grisman

After Old And In The Way, Grisman was involved in the Great American String Band. While Old And In The Way was in the mold of bluegrass, this new band meshed the bluegrass sounds of Bill Monroe with the gypsy jazz brilliance of Django Reinhardt

Great American String Band (4-20-1974 to 6-13-1974)
From theJerrysite

* Jerry Garcia - banjo, vocals
* David Grisman - mandolin, vocals
* David Nichtern - guitar, vocals
* Richard Greene - fiddle
* Taj Mahal - bass (4-20-1974 only)
* Buell Neidlinger - bass (4-26-1974 to 6-13-1974)

After some Great American String Band concert performances between April and June 1974, David Grisman formed a more permanent band releasing scores of brilliant music, especially his first few albums. For the Django influenced material, David uses the mandolin in place of some of the traditional acoustic guitar rhythm is a sound to behold when in such capable hands and orchestration of David Grisman.

In his new band Grisman used only a few members from Muleskinner and Old And In The Way such as Vassar Clements and Bill Keith. He instead got other top notch musicians for this line-up, players like Jerry Douglass, and Tony Rice. For a tour he hooked up with Django's long time partner Stephane Grappelli; thankfully they released a live recording.
