VARIOUS 'Old Time Mountain Banjo'

  • $13.50


Here is a generous helping of some of the finest examples of old-time banjo that were issued on 78s in the 1920s & 30s. Reworked from County’s classic LP of the same title, it features a marked improvement in sound quality as well as several tunes not on the original vinyl. Accompanied by a very attractive 16-page booklet of notes (by Bob Buckingham) and neat photos, the disc includes masterpieces by B.F. Shelton, Frank Jenkins, Charlie Poole, Dock Walsh, John Hammond, Buell Kazee and Clarence Ashley, among others. Great variety and great music! ITALY, PRETTY POLLY, BAPTIST SHOUT, FAR IN THE MOUNTAIN, COAL CREEK MARCH, HOME SWEET HOME, CHARMING BETSY, etc.
