Product Description

Subtitle: 50 Years of Traditional Music Documented by Art Rosenbaum. This is a CD preview release of an upcoming Dust-to-Digital 4CD collaboration with renowned music archivists, Art and Margo Rosenbaum. The diverse talents of the Rosebaums have allowed them to record music traditions in a way few others could have done. Dust-to-Digital is proud to announce this project in an attempt to keep alive the music they love so dearly. Get ready for antebellum spirituals, lined-out hymns of country churches, old time frolic tunes, bottleneck blues, hammer-and-pick work songs, dance music of fiddle bands, unaccompanied mountain ballads, and backwoods banjo tunes. Art Rosenbaum has been recording American traditional music for half a century -- and in the process produced over 15 LPs and CDs, two hard-cover books, and archival material deposited in the Library of Congress, Indiana University, and University of Georgia archives. In 2007, Dust-to-Digital will release a 4CD set of Art Rosenbaum's recordings. The presentation will be in book form, with notes and commentary on all the tracks, many of Art's own drawings and paintings as well as Margo's photographs, and of course, four CDs. The content of the several CDs will be roughly inspired by Harry Smith's organization of his classic Anthology of American Folk with some important differences.


"Even after 50 years of combing town and country for sounds to feed his tape deck, songcatcher Art Rosenbaum's heart must still pump adrenaline with each new knock on a screen door. It's a natural response to the flood of anticipation generated at what blues, folk, old-time, or gospel discovery might await on the other side. And as Art of Field Recording shows, his onsite recording sweeps have yielded an absolute bounty of American traditional music in the raw. So much so that the 24 one-of-a-kind moments here represent only the very tip of the iceberg, a tasty sampler of the complete mother lode due later this year. " -- Dennis Rozanski, Blues Rag, February 2007

"Rosenbaum isn't primarily an archivist; his work as a painter, art professor and folk musician seems to have informed his searching more than mere academic drive to trace musical history as far back as possible. Thus nearly all of the 24 pieces here -- from stately yet raw blues to fiery fiddling stompers -- are stirring affairs, and you won't need a Ph.D. in country-R&B to get it." -- Mike Wolf, Time Out New York
