Playing at breakneck speed has been an honored tradition in bluegrass and The Dillards (hailing from the Ozarks) did it faster and better that most — as in this revision of Old Joe Clark. From their experience on The Andy Griffith Show, The Dillards developed a complete act: comedy, stage presence, musicianship and style. Doug and Rodney Dillard, Dean Webb and Mitchell Jayne did nearly as much to popularize bluegrass music as did the hillbilly Clampetts of Beverly Hills. The Dillards also had a marked influence on the West Coast musicians who later ignited Southern California’s country rock movement in the late 60s.
