ALLEN BROTHERS with Other Country Brother Acts

Price: $27.50 (excluding tax)
SKU: JSP-77182-4CD
Weight: 1.25 LBS


Product Description

The Allen Brothers, from Chattanooga, Tennessee, have their share of fans today and must have had plenty back in the 1920s and 30s, because they recorded extensively—mostly for the Victor and Bluebird labels. They are not held in the same high respect of the classic string bands of the period, mostly because their featured instrument was a kazoo, which gave them a funky sound that made them more of a novelty act as compared with the great brother acts like the Blue Sky Boys, Monroe Brothers and Delmore Brothers. Like other JSP 4-CD sets, this one has about 100 tracks, and their repertoire fills out 3 of the 4 CDs. The rest of the set (the 4th disc) contains another couple dozen recordings that only have in common the fact that they were brothers ! (Stripling Bros., Woodie Bros., Ray Brothers, McGee Brothers, and so on. It makes for a motley collection, but at least old time fans can hear some fine tracks by the Kessinger Brothers, the Anglin Brothers, the Morris Brothers, and other good artists. And, as with other JSP sets, this is a real bargain at just $ 27.50 for the 4-CD set.
