KYLE CREED 'Liberty'

  • $6.00


An important and very welcome old-time record here, reissued by the Heritage label from a mid-1970s LP that Creed had issued somewhat reluctantly on his own Mountain label. Though Creed is one of the legendary old-time banjoists that many players learned from, his recordings were few (some of the most influential appeared on the early and classic “Clawhammer Banjo” LP –the first album that appeared on the County label, back in 1965). While Kyle was always more than happy to share his music and techniques with others, for a long time he didn’t really think his playing was worthy of a record. This disc, which also includes some singing by Emily Spencer and guitar backing by Emily & Thornton Spencer. It’s a wonderful 15 piece collection that will be greeted with pleasure by clawhammer banjo pickers and old time music enthusiasts in general. Tunes include ROUT-A-BOUT, SINFUL TO FLIRT, KATY KLINE, LOST INDIAN, CLUCK OLE HEN, SHADY GROVE, etc.
