Description

As the Mississippi Delta is to blues so Kentucky is to fiddle music, banjo playing and classic old ballads and songs. No other state even comes close in terms of its amazing diversity of styles and just pure prodigious amounts of great classic performances. This 7CD box set contains almost 200 all-time great performances by some of the finest country musicians who ever lived. It is a treasure-trove of Americana, and one of the most important roots projects ever assembled. Since all the recordings are from the 1920s and '30s, it's as close to ultimate sources as anything can be. Included in the box set is a thick 120 x 270 mm booklet containing stunning period photos of many of the musicians included, and copious background notes. Yazoo's usual high standards are evident throughout this project.
