If you read any overview of country rock, the narrative always progresses from innovators like Dillard and Clark and Gram Parsons to the Eagles -- end of story. This, however, overlooks hippie bluegrass renegades like the Seldom Scene, whose Act 2, released in 1973, is one of country rock's great albums. Featuring the sparkling harmonies of John Starling, Mike Auldridge and John Duffey, this record returns Parsons' cosmic American music to the Blue Ridge Mountains.
