DIXON BROTHERS 'Weave Room Blues'

DIXON BROTHERS 'Weave Room Blues'

  • $15.00


Very similar to its companion volume, SPINNING ROOM BLUES (OH-4164, $ 15.00), this 24-song collection presents most of the remaining tracks that Dorsey & Howard Dixon recorded in the 1930s for the Bluebird label. Featuring fairly rudimentary accompaniment on their guitar and slide guitar, they nevertheless came up with a highly distinctive and unique sound derived from their cotton-mill town background in the Carolinas. Some of the most intriguing cuts from their repertoire are found on this volume, including the charming INTOXICATED RAT and SALES TAX ON THE WOMEN, as well as fascinating cuts like WEAVER’S LIFE, BEAUTIFUL STARS, THE SCHOOL HOUSE FIRE, DOWN WITH THE OLD CANOE and the title track.
