Product Description

It’s great to see the re-issue of this inspired, fascinating fiddle album by the legendary Scotty Stoneman. Although it originally came out on a cheap 99cent LP, it may be the best recorded work Scotty ever did (and that’s taking into account his classic, marvelous, lonesome backing of early vocals by Buzz Busby and Red Allen). Stoneman could play stellar backing for both Bluegrass and Country bands, but it’s hard to imagine him any more forceful and inspired than on the old time tunes that make up this record. Driven along by an unknown but solid banjo, guitar and bass, he seems to be in another world as he tackles BILLY IN THE LOW GROUND (2 versions) OLD JOE CLARK, LEE HIGHWAY BLUES, FIRE ON THE MOUNTAIN, and my favorite, 4 minutes worth of 8th of JANUARY that almost leaves the listener breathless. Stoneman—who died in 1973 at the young age of 41—was unique, and this recording will be a welcome reminder to those who saw him in action, as well as a chance for those who have only heard about him to sift in some of his magic.
