Product Description

Those who love the old time re-issues will find this 4-CD set a bonanza of great old time string band music from the 1920s and 1930s. Britain’s JSP label has done this box up nicely, featuring several of the most interesting string bands of the rural south. Though it could just as easily be called “Old Time String Band Music”, the “Country Fiddle” titling is just as appropriate, as several fine fiddlers show their wares on the 100 tunes & songs presented here. The first two discs each feature single artists: Earl Johnson with 25 highly energetic cuts on one, and The Leake County Revelers on the 2nd disc, featuring the more stately, but lovely fiddling of Will Gilmer. Disc 3 is mainly devoted to the wonderful East Texas Serenaders and the super fiddling of D.H. Williams—whose more sophisticated playing is remarkable on tunes like ACORN STOMP, BEAUMONT RAG, MINEOLA RAG, etc. Rounding out the 3rd disc are a few tracks by Dixie Ramblers, Freeny Harmonizers, Grinnell Giggers and Walker’s Corbin Ramblers. The 4th disc presents selected songs & tunes by Dr. Humphrey Bate, Aiken County String Band, Floyd Ming, Dr. Smith and Dykes Magic City Trio. Sound quality is generally good, apart from 4 very rough tunes on the Earl Johnson CD. Whether or not you already have much of this fine music, the 4-CD set is a huge bargain at the price of just $27.50.
