VARIOUS ARTISTS 'Down In The Basement: Treasure Trove Of Vintage 78s'

  • $15.00


This wonderfully packaged, 24-track collection is as much about collector Joe Bussard as about the great music heard here. For those not familiar with him, Bussard (pronounced like the bird) is a legendary obsessive, outspoken collector of 78’s (some 25,000 of them). Certainly not politically correct, and with no tolerance for things modern, Joe gets deserved credit for knowing great music and wanting to share it with everyone. On this powerful album Bussard presents gems from his world-famous collection, fairly evenly divided between old-time country, Rural blues, and early Jazz. A 12-page booklet of notes is filled with Bussard's comments as to how and where he found the records, including his ultra rare BLACK PATTI blues gem A real visual & aural treat for anyone with the collector instinct—and anyone who just enjoys great music! Pieces by DIXON BROS., GITFIDDLE JM, WEEMS STRING BAND, BLIND GARY, SWEET BROTHERS, BLIND BLAKE, FESS WILLIAMS, GRINNELL GIGGERS, STRIPLING BROTHERS etc.
