NEW LOST CITY RAMBLERS 'Vol. II 1963-1973' SFW-40040-CD
An excellent well-presented collection of 27 old times songs by the later version of NLCR(after Travy Schwarz replaced Tom Paley). The Ramblers did a fine job in recreating rural music off old 78s and from various field recordings of traditional musicians and the editors of this disc have selected many of the best of the band's many recordings. This disc nicely cpmlements the group's earier work with Tom Paley. Good notes by Jon Pankake. JOHN BROWN'S DREAM,VICTORY RAG,LITTLE CARPENTER,OLD JOE BONE,OLD JOHNNY BOOKER,COWBOY WALTZ,LITTLE SATCHEL,WHO KILLED POOR ROBIN etc.
