Classic music that's stronger than dirt 17 Aug 2002
By "ontheair610" - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Two long-out-of-print LPs in one great CD, capturing the early pre-country years of NGDB. The "Alive!" performance, with its blend of great music and comedy (Jeff Hanna's monologue about how John McEuen became "King of De Banjo", the unforgettable "Fat Boys Can Make It In Santa Monica" - as well as their performaces of "Crazy Words, Crazy Tune" in both regular and speeded-up versions - are not to be missed!), paired with 1969's "Rare Junk," a compilation of songs that had not seen the light of LP or 45 (except for one song),
give the listener an incredible "look" at a band that's still making great music 35 years later.
P.S. For the one reviewer who asked, "The Broken Road" appears on two albums: "Hold On" (Warner Bros.) and "Acoustic" (Liberty/Capitol Nashville), both available from the NGDB's website.
Welcome to the 1970's and good summer jug band music 20 Jun 2014

Love both CD's and use them to do my power walking on my back yard walking trail. Great 1920's/ jug band combos.
They were truly unique ‘back in the day' 16 May 2014

and they still are! TWO discs of their best tunes to hit the airwaves,
a “number” of years ago.. These are the best of their best from the early days.
Will really ‘take you back’.. way back :)
Great collection for any Dirt Band fan.
Alive, Rare Junk 1 Jun 2011

A very fun and lively album from the Dirt Band's early days. Contains a lot of funny gems you will not find on a greatest hits album. Sadly, it was stolen from my car. I will have to order another...

Alive/Rare Junk by the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band 6 Mar 2010
By T. Johnston - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is an album from some live appearances. Not bad , but I ususally don't like live appearance albums. I don't like the commentary between songs etc. Most of the songs are good, but this album is just O.K. in my book. I'm a Dirt Band fan, but this is far from their best album.
