2005 CD release.
Here is a collection of extremely rare early American music. Before movies, radio and television, the traveling Medicine Shows brought entertainment to America. Flamboyant pitch doctors roamed the land, hawking their tonics, elixers and miracle cures and with them came a host of singers, dancers, comedians, banjo pickers, blues shouters, jug blowers and minstrel singers.
This compilation features the music from the original arts from the Medicine Shows recorded between 1926-1937. Featuring tracks by: Pink Anderson, Daddy Stovepipe, Gid Tanner, Blind Sammie, Bogus Ben Convington, Fiddlin' John Carson among others colorful characters.
