DOCK BOGGS & EMRY ARTHUR 'Old Time Songs From Virginia And Kentucky' BACM-274-CD

Add To Wishlist

The dozen songs that Dock Boggs recorded back in the late 1920s were nicely presented several years ago on the Revenant label with extensive notes --unfortunately, that record is no longer available, so this British compilation fills a gap. It presents the original 8 songs cut for the Brunswick label in 1927, plus the 4 Boggs recorded for the legendary & ultra rare "Lonesome Ace" label in 1929. In addition, there are another 10 tracks that feature some recordings of Emry Arthur that were made for the Vocalion and Decca labels from 1928-1935. (Not a bad pairing --the two artists were musically similar in some ways and were probably friends, both from around the Kentucky/Virginia border). If you don't already have Boggs' classic recordings of COUNTRY BLUES and DOWN SOUTH BLUES on some anthology, this is a good chance to get it. PRETTY POLLY, SUGAR BABE, THE BLIND BOY, LET THAT LIAR ALONE, etc.
