Dixie Breakdown

Back cover transcription :

Organized in August, 1972, The Second Edition plays a wide variety of bluegrass music from « Little Bessie » to « Norwegian Wood ». The band changed their style of music and started playing a more progressive bluegrass. They convert the sound of many rock songs and rearrange ole time bluegrass numbers into their own style of bluegrass music ; thus, The Sounds Of The Second Edition.

The Second Edition has won countless tropheys, ribbons and awards. They are open for bookings and can be reached by phoning Jimmy Haley (919) 351-3140, or by writing Jimmy at the following address :
