COUNTRY GENTLEMEN 'High Lonesome - Complete Starday Recordings'

  • $15.00


It’s good to see this wonderful 2-CD set back in print, as it documents most of the earliest work of this highly influential band. Originally issued in the summer of 2001 as STARDAY-3510, it has been out of print for the past few years. With 51 tracks recorded from 1957 to 1963, it includes such classic recordings as NEW FREEDOM BELL, LETTER TO TOM, TWO LITTLE BOYS, RED ROCKING CHAIR, I NEVER WILL MARRY, DARLING ALLALEE, and COPPER KETTLE, as well as l4 cuts that were only available on a Japanese LP. Most of the songs feature the original band of Charlie Waller, John Duffey and Bill Emerson (with Eddie Adcock replacing Emerson on the 7th session that the group recorded). For most Bluegrass fans this is a must! 2-CD set
