Legends Of Old-Time Music: Fifty Years Of County Records


"Legends Of Old-Time Music" is a deluxe 4CD box set of 113 old-time performances recorded for County Records from the 1960s to the 1980s. Originally issued primarily on LP, most of these tracks have never been released on CD. Thirty of the songs are previously unissued and heard here for the very first time in this edition. Collected and recorded by Charlie Faurot, Bobby Fulcher, Rich Nevins, Barry Poss (Sugar Hill Records) and others, these performances are among the very best old-time recordings, made by "true-vine" musicians. Legendary performers include: John Ashby, E.C. Ball, Fred Cockerham, Kyle Creed, Tommy Jarrell, Clark Kessinger, Steve Ledford, Hiram Stamper, Wade Ward, Melvin Wine and many others. This set contains a 28-page booklet with notes by Kinney Rorrer, annotations by the late Charlie Faurot, several unpublished photos of musicians and essays by contributors to this collection. Co-produced by Grammy Award Winner Christopher C. King, this four-disc box is sure to appeal to fans of Harry Smith's groundbreaking Anthology of American Folk Music collection as well as the field recordings of John and Alan Lomax.
