The LEADER IN CLASSIC BLUEGRASS COLLECTIONS. New Heritage Collection
Historic MOUNTAIN BLUEGRASS MUSIC PERSERVED For FUTURE GENERATIONS !
25 Vintage Bluegrass & Mountain Classics. Several Tracks Never-Before-Available On CD
Continuing with our successful SOUND TRADITIONS Series, Rural Rhythm is proud to release this special new 25 Song Heritage Collection title, APPALACHIAN BLUEGRASS LEGACY 25 VINTAGE BLUEGRASS & MOUNTAIN CLASSICS which contains Historic Bluegrass Music preserved for FUTURE GENERATIONS and debuts many classic recorded songs Never-Before-Available on CD.
This new HERITAGE COLLECTION is part of the process by which these classic songs are handed on to FUTURE GENERATIONS as a part of our AMERICANA MUSIC LEGACY. The oldest of these songs crossed the ocean in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, but all of them have endured, and they re rendered here in performances that will endure. And thanks to this collection and others in the SOUND TRADITIONS series, future generations will be introduced to this music and hand it on to their children.
If we could somehow set the time machine for a dark hollow in Appalachia on a Saturday night some hundred or two hundred years ago, we might see a group of neighbors getting together by the coal oil lamps. Someone might arrive with a fiddle, and we might even hear a few of these songs. And thanks to this CD and the others in the SOUND TRADITIONS series, future generations will be introduced to this music and hand it on to their children. So many of these songs are priceless snapshots of the way we were and deserve no less.
Of late, Appalachia has been romanticized in movies, stories, and songs. Many songs like the ones on this collection are snapshots of life as it was lived in the most forgotten part of our nation. If folklorists had gone into the small towns, hill communities, and hollers throughout the southeast during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, we might understand how the music of the old and new worlds melted into one.
This new HERITAGE COLLECTION album contains 25 VINTAGE FAVORITES, (many lost but not forgotten through the years), including Mountain Dew , Rolling In My Sweet Baby s Arms , Old Joe Clark , Salty Dog Rag , Cotton Eyed Joe , Watermelon On The Vine , Grandfather s Clock , Black Mountain Rag , Six White Horses , Little White Washed Chimney , and Old Dan Tucker , by some of the biggest Bluegrass stars during the heyday of Bluegrass Music including MAC WISEMAN, RED SMILEY, HYLO BROWN, EARL TAYLOR, JIM McCALL, TATER TATE, RAYMOND FAIRCHILD, CURLY FOX, etc.
Each song was remastered from the original master tapes by Steve Hoffman, (a leading mastering engineer in the High End Audio market). The end results are some of the best sounding authentic Traditional Bluegrass music available today!
SOUND TRADITIONS: APPALCHIAN BLUEGRASS LEGACY, is a new HERITAGE COLLECTION on Rural Rhythm that takes the BEST OF song masters by BLUEGRASS LEGENDS that will be a must for listeners who cherish Traditional Bluegrass Music...And handed down to FURTURE GENERATIONS in this Appalachian Bluegrass Legacy Collection.
|Will the Circle Be Unbroken (30th Anniversary Edition)
Lowest new price: $6.72
Lowest used price: $3.60
Brand: Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, The
Two generations of country artists came together 30 years ago, when this epic meeting took place between the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and Mother Maybelle Carter, Earl Scruggs, Doc Watson, Roy Acuff and LOTS of other legends. This anniversary reissue features their remarkable renditions of Black Mountain Rag; Nine Pound Hammer; Honky Tonkin'; The Precious Jewel; Wabash Cannonball , and 33 more!
In an age when the old-timey soundtrack to O Brother, Where Art Thou? sells 5 million copies, it's hard to imagine how revolutionary Will the Circle Be Unbroken seemed upon its release 30 years ago. The triple album (now rereleased as a two-CD set) paired many of Nashville's venerable country and bluegrass performers (Roy Acuff, Mother Maybelle Carter, Earl Scruggs, Doc Watson, Merle Travis, Jimmy Martin, Vassar Clements) with the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, or as Acuff called them, "a bunch of long-haired West Coast boys." The idea seemed nearly as foreign as Martians setting down in Tennessee, but the Dirt Band were Colorado hippies steeped in the genre, so there was no disputing the authenticity of the music, or its earthy appeal. Aside from the sheer joy of the performances (listen to Jimmy Martin's "whoop" on "Sunny Side of the Mountain"), there's great fun in hearing Roy Acuff give the boys a lesson in doing a song right the first time (and using the word hell before launching into a religious number). And Mother Maybelle wafts through like a benevolent ghost, or at least a patron saint. One caveat: The boast of four previously unreleased tracks is balderdash, since three are really between-track conversations and rehearsals, and only "Foggy Mountain Breakdown" qualifies as a real song. But that's nitpicking. Buy it. Love it. Wallow in it. O brother, that's country music! --Alanna Nash

|The Complete Mercury Recordings
Lowest new price: $6.31
Lowest used price: $6.92
This anthology of all 28 Flatt & Scruggs Mercury sides came out a decade ago, but this remastered reissue not only upgrades the sound considerably, it also presents the tracks in chronological order with song-by-song credits and extensive notes: Foggy Mountain Breakdown; Roll in My Sweet Baby's Arms; Salty Dog Blues; Take Me in a Lifeboat; Pike County Breakdown , and more essential bluegrass!
Fresh off their pioneering stint with Bill Monroe, guitarist-vocalist Lester Flatt and banjo master Earl Scruggs waxed these 28 seminal cuts for the tiny Mercury label between 1948 and 1950. The duo and their Foggy Mountain Boys attack the music with an urgency that even Monroe's Blue Grass Boys were hard-pressed to equal. Scruggs's rolling three-fingered banjo technique is as important to bluegrass as any other innovation; without competition from Monroe's mandolin, his banjo became the music's primary driving force and the engine that propels most of these songs. "Foggy Mountain Breakdown" and "Farewell Blues" are banjo tour de forces that will never be matched. Original gospel numbers find Scruggs applying his fingerpicking technique to guitar, à la Merle Travis, and feature sharp group harmonies. Most of these original secular songs have become bluegrass standards, even though the pair refused to call their refined mountain music bluegrass. --Marc Greilsamer

Lowest used price: $18.29
List price: $29.99
Kris Kristofferson narrates this definitive 4 episode documentary series looking at the history of America's popular music; from blues, bluegrass, Cajun through to country and gospel. Features clips of musicians such as Jimmie Rodgers, The Carter Family, Muddy Waters, BB King, Bob Wills, Hank Williams, Bill Monroe, Earl Scruggs, Mahalia Jackson, Clifton Chenier and Woody Guthrie.
O Brother, wherever thou art, behold what thou and thy kin hath wrought. With the documentary American Roots Music and its spinoffs (including a book and CD collection), producers Jim Brown and Sam Pollard clearly were influenced by the popularity of the 2000 film O Brother, Where Art Thou? and its music. You won't be seeing Eminem and Mariah Carey here, or even Duke Ellington and Ray Charles, but rather a comprehensive, if flawed, four-part documentary examining the various cultural and ethnic folk traditions that blended together to create the rich, multi- flavored brew that is American music.
Narrated by Kris Kristofferson, each of the four parts is a little less than an hour long. Episode One offers a brief overview before detailing topics like the spread of music via Victrolas and radio, the early days of country music and the Grand Ole Opry, the rise of black gospel music, and seminal blues musicians like Son House, Mamie Smith, and Robert Johnson. Episode Two deals with western music (Gene Autry, Bob Wills), Bill Monroe and bluegrass, Hank Williams, Woody Guthrie, and more blues (Leadbelly, Sonny Boy Williamson, B.B. King). Episode Three, perhaps the best of the lot, takes on urban blues (Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf), black spirituals, and the early '60s folk boom, while Episode Four studies Cajun, zydeco and Tex-Mex styles, along with Native American music and more.
The style is standard documentary, with interviews and photos interspersed with new and old live footage. The producers tout the presence of "rare performances" by Guthrie, Waters, Monroe, Clifton Chenier, and many others, and they're fascinating. But for whatever reason (lack of time or maybe lack of faith in viewers' attention spans) none is presented in its entirety. It's a drawback that is remedied to some extent by the addition of six bonus clips (three on each DVD) that are complete, including wonderful vintage films of Western Swing master Bob Wills and the remarkable gospel singer/guitarist Sister Rosetta Tharpe. --Sam Graham

|Rattle & Roar
Lowest new price: $10.38
Lowest used price: $12.39
The Earls of Leicester have discovered a kind of magic that, when harnessed, allows moments once relegated to memories to roar back to life. Old sounds rattle loose chains of space and time that have kept us from forgotten joys and who we once were. Suddenly, as we listen to and watch the Earls pick, saw, and croon, instead of contemplating once upon a time, we are living it. With their second album Rattle & Roar (Rounder Records), the Earls have conjured up a fresh batch of Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs songs, delivered with their Grammy-winning signature blend of homage, virtuosity, and perspective. The inimitable Jerry Douglas (14-time Grammy-winner) remains the band s producer and hypnotic Dobroist; blue-ribbon songwriter, singer, and producer Shawn Camp (Garth Brooks, Blake Shelton) still soars on lead vocals and guitar; revered multi-instrumentalist and sideman Jeff White (Vince Gill, Loretta Lynn) now deftly handles high harmony and mandolin; ace Nashville banjoist Charlie Cushman (Jimmy Martin, Mel Tillis) tackles banjo and guitars; topflight musician Johnny Warren (son of Foggy Mountain Boys Paul Warren) cuts in radiantly on fiddle; and the esteemed Barry Bales (Alison Krauss & Union Station) holds magnificently steady on vocals and bass. To capture the feel of a live show, Rattle & Roar was recorded in one room, with all of the band members around mics, no separation between them. The result pulses with impish joy, uniquely showcasing artists at the top of their game as they delight in their work not just as creators, but also as fans struck with childlike awe.
