Dalhart, the man who in 1924 recorded WRECK OF THE OLD ’97 and PRISONER’S SONG—probably the largest selling single record in the first 50 years of the recording “industry”—has not been very well represented on CD (or on LP, for that matter). There’s no doubt that his voice does little for today’s listener: too stiff and trained for the country listener, and too “corny” for a pop market. But Dalhart was a phenomenon and a source of material for many rural musicians of the 1920s, and this abbreviated 10-song CD presents his two biggest hits plus DEATH OF FLOYD COLLINS (another big-selling tear-jerker), CASEY JONES, WRECK OF THE SHENANDOAH, GOVERNOR’S PARDON, and MY BLUE RIDGE MOUNTAIN HOME, etc.
