Yazoo Records & collector Rich Nevins have compiled this stunning collection of old recordings from one of the most fascinating states of the union in terms of diverse & powerful rural music. The first of several projected Kentucky releases, this focuses roughly on musicians of the Corbin area in eastern Kentucky, and contains really 2 LPs worth of music (26 tracks). The CD covers well the music of some of the most striking artists of the old-time era: the eerie banjo ballads of B.F. Shelton (3 cuts), Alfred Karnes' powerful gospel solos, the grand fiddling of W.M. Steep (6), the sweet, emotive songs of the Kentucky Ramblers (5) (including the ultra rare GINSENG BLUES), and the amazing, dynamic gospel songs of Ernest Phipps & His Holiness singers (5 tracks including the rarely heard LITTLE TALK WITH JESUS and SHINE ON ME). An absolutely wonderful CD that should be a must for any serious fan of the music of rural America. CALLAHAN, SILVER STRAND, DARLING CORA, NED WENT FISHIN, WITH MY MOTHER DEAD & GONE, CALLED TO THE FOREIGN FIELD, GLORY TO THE LAMB, L & N RAG, PRETTY POLLY, WAYS OF THE WORLD, OH MOLLY DEAR, etc.
