Great collection of hits

"This cd of Nitty Gritty Dirt Band songs is great for a starter collection. Of notable interest on this cd is Mr. Bojangles, which is presented here in the shorter "B" side version of the song. The song was issued on both sides of the original 45, one with a minute and a half long prelude, then the song kicks in. When you flip the 45 over you get this version, which actually starts differently than the version on the A side 45.
For a very nice cheap budget price, this cd is a near definitive overview of their early hits, and I recommend this to anyone. Some of the other great songs on this cd are Buy For Me The Rain, House At Pooh Corner, and Will The Circle Be Unbroken.
If you want to dig a little deeper into the band's music, other cds that I recommend are "Dirt, Silver and Gold" for more songs from this era (which includes the original A side version of Mr. Bojangles), and also "20 Years of Dirt" for "Dance Little Jean".
Again, the B side version of Mr. Bojangles is on this cd, and it is in fact hard to find on cd. This cd has the basic early hits by the group, and is a must for anyone who likes Mr. Bojangles and wants to hear more of their hits."
The Dirt Band's Greatest Album

"This is the greatest collection of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band's late 70's and early 80's songs that I have seen. I orginally had the cassette version, and I just had to find this exact album on CD. This album WILL take you back to a time 20 years ago and let you feel like you did back then. The melodies capture a great era of music that we will never see again. I have frequently heard An American Dream on pop music stations. I even heard Make a Little Magic in a department store last week. This is just a can't live without for any Dirt Band fan. I can only wish that this particular album was more available on CD!"
