GRANDPA JONES 'An American Original'

GRANDPA JONES 'An American Original'

  • $13.50


Grandpa Jones early King recordings are generally considered the best of the late entainer's lengthy career. This new 30 cut CD on CMH may be the best over-all example of what Grandpa was about. It has much better sound quality than the King re-issue and Lawrence Zwisohn has written some good notes. Though recorded somewhat late in his career, Grandpa is in excellent form here and the song selection couldn't be better. There is not a bad cut on this excellent and generous collection; one of CMH's finest releases.
