DIXON BROTHERS 'Spinning Room Blues'

DIXON BROTHERS 'Spinning Room Blues'

  • $15.00


Here is one of two Old Homestead CDs that document most if not all of the Dixon Brothers fairly extensive recordings for the Bluebird label in the 1930s (many of the records were sold only through mail order on the Montgomery Ward label and are extremely rare in their original form). While not every piece the brothers recorded was a masterpiece, there are a number of great cuts here including WHITE FLOWER FOR YOU, THE OLD TRUE LOVE, the fascinating title song and a lovely I WILL MEET MY PRECIOUS MOTHER. While the sound is a bit more muffled than it should be, it is better than similar recent issues of this group on the Document label. Includes one later home recording by Dorsey Dixon,
