Product Description

Most of our Bluegrass fans and customers will be absolutely fascinated by this book of over 300 pages (what seems like single spacing, too) that details Wiseman’s amazing career in Bluegrass music—both in the business end of things as well as Mac’s wonderful musical contributions. It seems like Mac knew just about everyone in Country music— including old time artists like Clayton McMichen, Bradley Kincaid and even Fiddlin’ John Carson! And every so often the reader has to kick back and say “wow” when we are reminded that Mac essentially started his career as bass player in Molly O’Day’s band—talk about legends! And let’s not forget Wiseman’s work with Bill Monroe and then being part of Lester Flatt & Earl Scruggs first recording session for Mercury. We learn how Mac became involved with many of the “barn dance” radio programs that helped so many country artists survive through the lean years, and his work as an A & R man for DOT RECORDS in the 1950s and 60s. There’s a lot to be learned from this book, and Mac does not hesitate to “call a spade a spade”, which is refreshing. About 35 pages of the book are devoted to a fascinating index and a list of all the recording sessions that Mac took part in over the years—not in the discographical form that we usually see, but still very informative and useful: either Mac’s memory is extremely sharp or the book’s co-author must have had access to the ledgers of various labels, as there is a lot of information that we have not seen before. The 33 chapters help make this a book that is hard to put down. (Published by NOVA BOOKS)
