ROSE MADDOX & THE MADDOX BROTHERS 'When The Sun Goes Down'

ROSE MADDOX & THE MADDOX BROTHERS 'When The Sun Goes Down'

  • $15.00


This is a generous collection of 24 songs featuring the fine country voice of Rose Maddox, taken mostly from their early 4-STAR recordings (eight of the tracks are from Columbia 78s). We haven’t compared the list of titles with the Arhoolie re-issue (ARH-391, $ 13.50), but it appears that an effort was made to avoid a lot of duplication. Noteworthy to serious fans of the group is the presence of three previously unissued 4-STAR cuts: JUST WHEN I NEEDED YOU, DON’T LET YOUR SWEET LOVE DIE and BRING IT ON DOWN TO MY HOUSE HONEY—all of them good ones. Other neat songs include I’LL BE NO STRANGER THERE, OLD PAL OF YESTERDAY, I’D RATHER HAVE JESUS and I’LL STILL WRITE YOUR NAME IN THE SAND. The sound quality is average—unfortunately the original master tapes don’t ever seem to be accessible for re-issues like this
