|Anthology of American Folk Music (Edited by Harry Smith)
Lowest new price: $60.52
Lowest used price: $32.99
Over 50 years after its original 1952 vinyl release, this is still the best American roots music collection around! Musicologist Harry Smith assembled the anthology from 78 rpm discs issued between 1927 and 1935. This 6-CD reissue was painstakingly researched, annotated and packaged to perfection. With 84 rare tracks, this one is a library all by itself! Includes Drunkard's Special Coley Jones; Peg and Awl Carolina Tar Heels; Frankie Mississippi John Hurt; Engine 143 Carter Family; Indian War Whoop Hoyt Ming & His Pep-Steppers; Newport Blues Cincinnati Jug Band; John the Revelator Blind Willie Johnson; Fifty Miles of Elbow Room Rev. F.W. McGee; Sugar Baby Dock Boggs; See That My Grave Is Kept Clean Blind Lemon Jefferson; The Lone Star Trail Ken Maynard, and many more!
This impressive--and frankly, fun--musical document is still sending out shock waves almost 50 years after its original 1952 vinyl release. The Smithsonian's six-CD reissue is painstakingly researched, annotated, and packaged (even boasting an enhanced disc for the techno-capable). Unlike field recorders, eccentric filmmaker/collector/musicologist Harry Smith assembled the Anthology from commercially released (though obscure) 78 rpm discs issued between 1927 and 1935. Its broad scope--from country blues to Cajun social music to Appalachian murder ballads--was monumentally influential, setting musicians like Bob Dylan down the path to folk fandom. The White House started its own national music library with the Anthology; anyone with more than a passing interest in American roots music should do the same. --Michael Ruby

In 1993, Nashville's biggest young stars--Alan Jackson, Trisha Yearwood, Vince Gill, and others--recorded an album of Eagles songs called Common Thread. When the disc went platinum, everyone hailed it as the rebirth of country-rock. If you listened closely, though, you heard neither the down-to-earth twang of country nor the metallic aggression of rock & roll. What you heard instead was the romantic sweetness of pop. More specifically, the Eagles represented the southern California pop tradition of harmony-drenched groups like the Beach Boys, the Mamas & the Papas, and Crosby, Stills and Nash. It's a wonderful tradition, but it's misleading to call it something else. Out there in the hinterlands you can still hear authentic country-rock, an exhilarating combination of blunt adult storytelling and blazing guitars as practiced by the likes of Joe Ely, Shaver, the Bottle Rockets, Mike Henderson, and Jason and the Scorchers. Real country-rock remains a marginal commercial force, however, and the real money is in the new Nashville version of southern California harmonies. Call it "suburban pop." --Geoffrey Himes

Acoustic masters Todd PHillips (bass), David Grier (guitar) and Matt Flinner (mandolin) reunite on this beautifully performed collection instrumental classics.
On Looking Back, their second CD, this acoustic trio demonstrates its mastery of the three T's: taste, tone, and technique. Whether their fingers are dancing through a bluegrass standard like Bill Monroe's "Tennessee Blues" or caressing the meditative melody of jazz pianist McCoy Tyner's "Search for Peace," the three musicians fuse elements of jazz, bluegrass, and rock into intriguing new shapes. Rather than charge their way through the tunes as musicians from the bluegrass tradition sometimes do, guitarist David Grier and mandolin player Matt Flinner concentrate on laying back and playing a single perfect note rather than a flurry of almost right ones. Bassist Todd Phillips lays down a solid rhythmic foundation while balancing the brighter-sounding instruments of his partners with a mellow low end. The sound is so full and rich it's hard to believe there are only three musicians here. Phillips, Grier, and Flinner called this CD Looking Back because they chose songs that they grew up playing. The tunes may be from the past, but their musical vision is decidedly facing the future. --Michael Simmons
