***Tompkins Square reissues an obscure treasure. ROLAND WHITE’s 1976 solo album I Wasn’t Born To Rock ‘N Roll, originally issued on the Ridge Runner Records label, is remastered from the original tapes and released for the very first time on CD. Roland White, along with his brother CLARENCE, made bluegrass and country music history as members of the KENTUCKY COLONELS. Roland also played in Bill Monroe’s Blue Grass Boys and Lester Flatt’s Nashville Grass, and later in Country Gazette and the Nashville Bluegrass Band. Clarence famously played with the Byrds, among many others, until his tragic death in 1973. This album features ALAN MUNDE, KENNY WERTZ, ROGER BUSH and DAVE FERGUSON playing traditional tunes, as well as a composition called “Powder Creek,” co-written by Roland & Clarence. This was the first appearance of this special tune on an album, a song which Roland now describes as having been composed with his brother on the New Jersey Turnpike in 1963! The package includes original liner notes by GENE PARSONS (THE BYRDS)), new reflections from Roland, original album artwork, and one unreleased bonus track not included on the original LP.
