Nitty Gritty Dirt Band – Not Fade Away (1992)

FrontCover1.jpgNot Fade Away is the 1992 album from The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band (a.k.a. The Dirt Band) is notable for having many charting albums and singles. Two singles from this album charted. “I Fought the Law” reached 66 on the US Country charts. “One Good Love” reached 74 on the US Country charts.

Suzy Bogguss appears as guest vocalist on “Don’t Underestimate Love”. They also appeared on her 1992 album Voices In The Wind. (by wikipedia)

I love this album, right behind Live Two Five, on my list of favorites. Bobby’s “Losin You” is addicting. Ibby’s “Mother of the Bride” is a wonderful sequel to “Dance Little Jean”. Jimmy’s “The Dream” is another one of his winners and Jeff is always great. I remember these songs from their concerts in the late 80’s and early 90’s. I recommend this CD to anyone who loves the NGDB and misses the days when Ibby was with them. (an amazom customer)
