VARIOUS ARTISTS 'A Treasury of Library of Congress Field Recordings'

  • $13.50


Selected and annotated by Stephen Wade, this noteworthy anthology contains many wonderful musical performances. But, due to the nature of the concept and the wide variety of music included, for most people it will not be the type of disc you can put on and enjoy from start to finish. Those who enjoy unaccompanied ballads, play party songs, native American chants etc, and don’t mind listening through some rough sound (these are early field recordings) will be especially rewarded. But for the average fan of old-time, rural music, this will be more of a refererence piece, with wonderful notes & research by Mr. Wade, and a number of exceptional performances by such names as Wade Ward, Texas Gladden, E.C. Ball, Pete Steele and the legendary fiddlers W.H. Stepp and Luther Strong of Kentucky and W.E. Claunch from Mississippi.
