Brand: SONGS OF THE CIVIL WAR
Inspired by the successful Civil War documentary from Ken Burns, this powerful soundtrack tackles many diverse musical styles from traditional folk and bluegrass to black gospel and outlaw country.
Prompted by the success Ken Burns's popular Civil War documentary (which spawned its own soundtrack), Songs of the Civil War presents an eclectic assortment of contemporary performers tackling period pieces that date back to the War Between the States. Here's Sweet Honey in the Rock tackling the slave lament "No More Auction Block for Me," Judy Collins singing "Battle Hymn of the Republic," and Kate and Anna McGarrigle essaying the lovely (and very suitable) "Hard Times Come Again No More." Between performances by name artists (Kathy Mattea, Waylon Jennings, and Richie Havens among them), instrumentals performed by the U.S. Military Academy Band provide a sense of time and place. --Steven Stolder

Inveterate record collector R. Crumb's artwork for this 2-CD set includes the subtitle "The Dead Sea Scrolls of Record Collecting," and indeed he and his henchmen at the Yazoo label have cooked up quite the collection for US unsuspecting consumers, consisting of 46 of the rarest and greatest blues and country sides from the '20s and '30s! Among the gems: two newly discovered masterpieces from Son House, Mississippi Country Farm Blues and Clarksdale Moan; If I Call You, a Luke Jordan side 'never' heard anywhere; the long-lost Georgia Pot Lickers record featuring duet fiddling by Lowe Stokes and A.A. Gray, and rarities from rural legends Tommy Johnson, Dock Boggs, Clarence Ashley, the Sweet Brothers, Andrew and Jim Baxter and many, many more. Crumb's booklet artwork expounds on the lunacy of record collecting utterly unique!

The key cuts from John's 1976-84 LPs are collected here, from his evocative steamboat songs to his whimsically weird progressive-bluegrass tunes. A re-record of his most famous song, Gentle on My Mind , joins Cuckoo's Nest; Miss Ferris; Gum Tree Canoe; Natchez Whistle; I Would Not Be Here; Boogie; Bear Creek Hop , and more!
This 18-song compilation serves as a useful introduction to John Hartford's quirky, modern old-time music. Culled from his Flying Fish period (1976-87), the set includes solo banjo and fiddle forays, odes to his beloved riverboats (and the fifth-grade teacher who turned him on to them), picking sessions with Nashville's top men (Buddy Emmons, Sam Bush, Bennie Martin, Roy Husky Jr., and more), laments for days gone by, and even a reading of "Gentle on My Mind"--the hit that facilitated this entire off-kilter musical vision. Whether through a nifty instrumental turn, a poignant lyric, or an annoying novelty tune, Hartford knows how to strike a nerve. --Marc Greilsamer
|Down In The Basement: Joe Bussard's Treasure Trove of Vintage 78s 1926-1937 (Jewel Case with 28-page booklet)
Lowest new price: $13.99
Declan McManus Pumps It Up. Joe Bussard. "He's an eccentric record collector who's preserved all sorts of magical corners of music - although he says things like, 'There are no good jazz records made after 1927.'" Elvis Costello - Esquire UK October 2005
"This is the music of poor whites and blacks: wild-ass jazz and string-band hillbilly, surreal yodels and king snake moans, lightning-bolt blues and whorehouse romps and orgasmic gospel. It's all anti-pop, anti-sentimental: the raw sounds of the city gutter and the roadside ditch." Desperate Man Blues by Eddie Dean - Da Capo Best Music Writing 2000
"Joe has spent more than 50 years pursuing his purpose with a single-mindedness bordering on mania. And his purpose is no less than collecting and preserving the vast wealth of American vernacular music that was recorded on fragile shellac discs during the early decades of this century." A Visit and Interview with Record Collector Joseph E. Bussard, Jr by Marshall Wyatt - Old-Time Herald Spring 1999 - oldhatrecords.com/BussardInt.html
24 Rare Gems From The King Of Record Collectors - String Bands, Blues, Jazz, Country, Cajun, Gospel. Profusely illustrated, 28-page full-color booklet includes biographical essay, fully annotated discography, and (online) firsthand accounts of Joe's record collecting adventures. 72 minutes of newly, digitally remastered music. Jewel case, second edition.

That title comes from a Bob Dylan quote about Roscoe, who was one of his favorite musicians. Roscoe's high 'n' lonesome voice and strong self-accompaniment on banjo, fiddle, guitar and harmonica made him a favorite of many; his 1961 rendition of Man of Constant Sorrow joins Graveyard Blues; Little Maggie; True Love; Knife Guitar , and 21 more!
