Product Description

I'll never forget my excitement, as a fledgling teenage record collector, on finding my first Uncle Dave Macon record, an almost new copy of HILL BILLIE BLUES b/w ALL I'VE GOT'S GONE on a red wax Vocalion 78.  In the following weeks I perused tattered old record catalogs in the public library, and my mouth watered at the thoughts of finding such other intriguing Macon titles as  BAKE THAT CHICKEN PIE, WRECK OF THE TENNESSEE GRAVY TRAIN, BACKWATER BLUES, CUMBERLAND MT. DEER RACE, COUNTRY HAM & RED GRAVY among many others.  Well, all those titles are here, along with over 200 others, in this magnificent 10-disc boxed set that will take its place alongside Bear Family's similar complete sets of JIMMMIE RODGERS and THE CARTER FAMILY as essential keystones for serious fans & students of country music.  Uncle Dave's repertoire was absolutely amazing, as this beautifully remastered 248-track set will document: it included traditional songs, vaudeville & minstrel tunes and string band classics that featured the wonderful fiddler Maizi Todd along with Sam & Kirk McGee.  We could go on about the songs, but Macon's strength there is well-established.  We will just point out that this set includes a DVD of Uncle Dave's 1940 movie THE GRAND OLE OPRY (with Roy Acuff), a number of home recordings and air checks from the Opry, and a fantastic 176-page book of great photos, discography and superb notes by master researcher Charles Wolfe.  A truly wonderful set that should provide many hours of entertainment and a treasure-house of information on a great age in rural American music.
