Product Description

This 4-CD set— like other sets in this series—contains around 100 songs & tunes. Clarence “Tom” Ashley’s recorded repertoire was not that extensive, so the set also contains the recordings of several other artists who knew and played with him during that “Golden Age” of old-time music. Those additional musicians included Emry Arthur, Dock Boggs. Dykes Magic City Trio and Byrd Moore. Fans of these artists (or of old-time music in general) will appreciate all of the music in this set. There are some real gems here, like Ashley’s banjo gems (COO COO BIRD. LITTLE SADIE, THE HOUSE CARPENTER), the rare ASHLEY & FOSTER duos (like BAY RUM BLUES, Byrd Moore’s Hot Shots, and of course Dock Boggs absolute classic performances of COUNTRY BLUES, DOWN SOUTH BLUES, etc. Only the most advanced collector or fan will already have all of the music here— and the set is a great bargain at only . $ 27.50
