In the early 1970s Bill Clifton spent considerable time overseas as an unofficial ambassador of Bluegrass music and had a lot to do with the spread of the genre to England, Holland and New Zealand. This re-issue combines 2 LPs worth of music that Clifton recorded in New Zealand in 1970 with the assistance of a locally popular band, the Hamilton County Bluegrass Band. While the sound quality leaves something to be desired, the music here is pleasant and the backing band is competent. There are 28 pieces here, including some old country songs, like SISTER LUCY LEE, BLUE EYED ELAINE, FEAST HERE TONIGHT, LITTLE WHITEWASHED CHIMNEY, POÕ FOLKS, etc.
