VARIOUS ARTISTS 'A Richer Tradition-Country Blues And String Band Music 1923-1942'

  • $27.50


The JSP label in England specializes in budget priced 4-CD sets of Blues, Jazz and vintage country music. Although this release is billed partly as “string band music” don’t expect to find Gid Tanner or Charlie Poole on this set. That is not to say there isn’t a lot of good music here: it’s essentially a good blues collection with a lot of obscure but excellent music from the rural black tradition, including some black string bands like Ted Bogan & Louie Bluie, Birmingham Jug Band, South Street Trio, James Cole String Band, Leecan & Cooksey and the Tennessee Chocolate Drops among others. There are 100 songs & tunes here, & a lot of great music for those who like the Blues. 4-CD set: $ 27.50
