SAM & KIRK McGEE 'The Essential Sam and Kirk McGee Collection''

  • $13.50


Here is a 28-cut Compact disc re-issue taken from three LPs that Opry favorites Sam & Kirk McGee recorded for Fuller Arnold’s MBA label in the 1970s. Recorded relatively late in their careers, the music here understandably does not have the punch or crispness of their wonderful 1920s classics or even the very solid recordings they made for Starday and for Folkways in the 1960s, but the disc includes versions of most of the songs & tunes the brothers were noted for, such as RAILROAD BLUES, BUCK DANCER’S CHOICE, KNOXVILLE BLUES, FRANKLIN BLUES, WHEN THE WAGON WAS NEW and Kirk’s BLUE NIGHT. Sam’s finger-style guitar work is still quite enjoyable on the 14 tracks here that feature him.
