The Greenbriar Boys were a northern bluegrass music group who first got together in jam sessions in New York's Washington Square Park. Along with the New Lost City Ramblers, their urban traditional country sound inspired a generation of musicians and fans. Three more albums followed: Dián and the Greenbriar Boys in 1963 for Elektra (with Dián James, d. 18 May 2006),Ragged but Right! in 1964, and Better Late Than Never in 1966 (with the additions of Frank Wakefield, who replaced Rinzler, and fiddler, Jim Buchanan). The 1966 album included the original recorded version of Mike Nesmith's "Different Drum", which was made into a hit song the following year by the Stone Poneys

The Greenbriar Boys first came together during informal Sunday afternoon jam sessions at New York's Washington S. .They subsequently released three other albums - Ragged but Right! in 1964, Dian & the Greenbriar Boys in 1965, and Better Late Than Never in 1966. With Rinzler leaving the group to accept a job as director of the folk department at the Smithsonian Institute, the Greenbriar Boys were joined by bluegrass mandolinist and vocalist Frank Wakefield and fiddler Jim Buchanan on Better Late Than Never. The Greenbriar Boys' arrangement of "Different Drum," by Mike Nesmith (later of the Monkees), was re-recorded and turned into a pop hit by Linda Ronstadt and the Stone Poneys in 1967.
