  • $9.00


Just 10 songs & tunes on this CD, which is the first entry on the Rounder label’s new “Perfect 10” re-issue series—made to sell for less than $ 10.00. The tracks were selected by Norman & Nancy Blake, and are good ones, especially BILLY GRAY, SLEEPY EYED JOE, 50 MILES OF ELBOW ROOM and the lovely FIELDS OF NOVEMBER, on which Norman plays fiddle backed by Charlie Collins on guitar. The Alabama fiddler James Bryan, who worked with the Blakes often in the early 1980s, is featured on 3 tracks. The cuts here were recorded between 1975 and 1987 and were selected from a large body of recordings that Norman & Nancy made for the Rounder and Flying Fish labels in their prime.
