Product Description

We are glad that this item has been released just in time for the holiday season, as it is a package that will please just about every fan of old time music— and specially those who love to hear different styles of guitar music. This is actually a 2-CD set issued by THE CROOKED ROAD (a highway that runs through southwestern Virginia, Tennessee, and part of West Virginia: home to many fine musicians past and present). A neat map of the route shows some of the towns from which the musicians came, such as Galax, Cana, Independence, Ferrum, Floyd, Saltville, Rocky Mount, Maces Spring, Meadows of Dan, and Fries, among many others. There are tunes by no less than 52 musicians—some of whom most fans will recognize immediately, such as Maybelle Carter, Grayson & Whitter, Wyatt Rice, Hobart Smith, Sammy Shelor, James Alan Shelton, and E.C. Ball. But we defy anyone to having heard most of these tracks before, as there are many obscure names here, pretty well split between Blues, Old-Time and Bluegrass. The cuts are full length, well remastered, and accompanied by a superb 36 page extensive set of notes (Ted Olson gets producer credits for this stunning collection). 2-CD set:
