I Wasn't Born to Rock 'n Roll

I Wasn't Born to Rock 'n Roll by Roland White
Released: Mar 1976
Label: Tompkins Square
I Wasn't Born To Rock 'n Roll is a gem of an album. Originally released in 1976 -- three years after the tragic death of brother, longtime collaborator and country rock pioneer Clarence White -- the record finds the fleet-fingered mandolin player and singer exploring a style of bluegrass that's significantly more traditional and subdued than that of his original band, The Kentucky Colonels. White is backed by what is essentially Country Gazette; together, they create a wonderful, warm and often melancholic sound in the process of collecting a set of real folk chestnuts. Great stuff for sure.
