MAC WISEMAN 'Bluegrass Hits And Heartsongs'

  • $10.00


One of the greatest singers in the history of Bluegrass and Country music is beautifully represented here in this 14 song collection on which Mac is backed by the excellent picking of three members of the Shenandoah Cutups (Tater Tate, Billy Edwards, and John Palmer), plus Buddy Griffin (2nd fiddle), Jeff Terflinger (mandolin) and Tommy Boyd (dobro on 6 tracks). The original recordings were made in the mid 1970s for the Cincinnati based Vetco label, to make up for the absence of Wiseman’s wonderful Dot recordings of the 1950s (which were long out of print at the time). In addition to some of Mac’s earlier classics like DON’T LET YOUR SWEET LOVE DIE, FOUR WALLS AROUND ME, FIRE IN MY HEART and I HAVEN’T GOT THE RIGHT TO LOVE YOU, the Vetco cuts added some songs that Wiseman had never recorded before: classic old timers like KNOXVILLE GIRL, THE BLACK SHEEP, MARY OF THE WILD MOOR and LETTER EDGED IN BLACK. The musical quality of everything here is very, very close to the great sound that Mac achieved on his stellar Dot label recordings of the early 1950s. This is SUPERB BLUEGRASS, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
