Product Description

Known primarily for its bargain 4-CD collections, Britain’s JSP label has something different here, with a single CD anthology of 21 old-time songs and tunes taken from classic 78s of the 1920s and 30s. The theme here—as noted in the album’s lengthy sub-title—is “Songs That Seeded the Folk Revival of the 1960s”. (Before we go on, please note that all 21 cuts here have been taken from various other previously issued JSP 4-CD sets—so serious collectors may not need this item). The selections—by such artists as Delmore Brothers, Cliff Carlisle, the Carter Family, etc—are well chosen, and include songs like BLUES IN A BOTTLE, COO COO BIRD, JOHN HENRY BLUES, FRANKIE DEAN, TOM DOOLEY, FOOTPRINTS IN THE SNOW, MAN OF CONSTANT SORROW and STACKALEE, done by artists like Prince Albert Hunt, Frank Hutchison, Kelly Harrell, Grayson & Whitter, and Clarence Ashley. The notes to the songs are somewhat curious, concentrating on what other Folk and Pop artists cut them after learning them from the legendary Harry Smith Folkways collection. While it may be instructive to see what pieces Bob Dylan likely learned from, do we really need to know that Roy Acuff’s RISING SUN was also recorded by the likes of Marianne Faithful, Frijid Pink, and Frankie Laine? All in all, this is a nice sampling of vintage old time music.
