Muddy Roads Hi-Def Master

When I was about 15 years old, I first heard the newly-recorded tapes that my neighbor, friend and mentor Ralph Rinzler had made in Shouns, Tennessee of the legendary old-time country musician Clarence "Tom" Ashley and his neighbors - Clint Howard, "Fiddlin'" Fred Price, Gaither Carlton and Arthel "Doc" Watson.

The music I experienced that day in Ralph's kitchen made an indelible imprint on my musical psyche which remains to this day.

This collection is my personal remembrance of Doc, Clarence and Ralph (all gone now) and my homage to them and the timeless tunes and songs that they played so long ago. - David Grisman
