First Edition CD/Book with never-before-released 1994 recording of John Hartford live at Nashville's famed Ryman Auditorium featuring John Hartford, Vassar Celements, Tut Taylor, Roy Husky Jr. and Tony Rice. John Hartford's seminal Aereo-Plain album from 1971 opened the doors for a new wave of contemporary bluegrass that would eventually take on its own identity as newgrass. The writer of pop classic "Gentle on My Mind," John Hartford brought a '70s songwriter sensibility to a traditional music format, and brought a new generation to the bluegrass world of Bill Monroe, Earl Scruggs and company. To tell the story of John Hartford: Pilot of a Steam Powered Aereo-plain, author Andrew Vaughan poured through the files and memorabilia of John Hartford's archive and talked to key players in Hartford's life. With pages of exclusive and never-before-seen photos from John Hartford's personal collection, this book tells the story of John's journey from St. Louis to Nashville with a few crazy Hollywood TV star years in between. Andrew Vaughan is a respected Nashville-based writer and an authority on country music. As a music critic, his work has appeared in Billboard, Music Week, Mojo, Q, the London Times, the Guardian, Folk Roots, and many other magazines. He was founding editor of Country Music International magazine and a regular guest on BBC Radio, BBC TV, and VH1 as an expert on country music and country rock. In 1999, Andrew moved from London to Nashville, where he quickly became one of the best-connected writers on the music scene. He is the author of several books including Shania: Feel Like a Woman (Andre Deutsch), The Eagles: An American Band (Sterling Books) and biographies of Taylor Swift and Beyoncé. He has been a record industry consultant and editorial director for the American Music Channel since 2002.
