The Nity Gritty Dirt Band has been turning out highly uneven albums in recent years, and Not Fade Away is no exception. The group builds up momentum with country rock and power balladry but then throws it away with four cover tunes. If these guys weren’t so old, you’d swear they were your more accomplished sock-hop band. C+
