Maybe it's something in the air, maybe it's something in the water, and MAYBE it's something in the whiskey, but Kentucky is to fiddle music, banjo playing and classic old ballads what the Mississippi Delta is to blues, and this 7-CD box contains almost 200 all-time great performances by some of the finest country performers of the '20s and '30s-the most comprehensive collection of early roots music ever assembled! A thick 5" x 11" booklet breaks it all down with amazing period photos and copious notes.
Includes some of the earliest known recorded performances of songs that have become a big piece of our American musical heritage: The Roving Boy Justis Begley; Buffalo Gals Crockett Family Mountaineers; Fire on the Mountain Ted Gossett's Band; I Wish I Was a Mole in the Ground Green Bailey; There's More Pretty Girls than One Rutherford & Foster; Pretty Polly Pete Steele; You'll Miss Me when I'm Gone Oaks Family, and more.
