Acoustic is the 1994 album from The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band.


The song "Sara In The Summer" was originally released as "Sara" on Ibbotson's first solo album Nitty Gritty Ibbotson in 1977. The Wild Jimbos also included it on the debut album Wild Jimbos in 1991.

The Allmusic review by Jim Newsom awarded the album 4 stars stating "A couple of years after the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band's string of country hits ended, the band returned to its roots to record this appropriately titled collection of original material. Most of the songs are very good, and the sound is refreshingly unadorned with any concessions to the soundalike country mainstream. Because the NGDB was among the many fine artists swept aside by the faceless hat acts and young country babes birthed by the Garth era, Acoustic never found a sizable audience. However, this blend of acoustic guitars, mandolin, dobro, harmonica, accordion, washboard, and beautiful vocal harmonies delivers a bevy of country/folk delights. ".
