Editorial Reviews

This sequel to The Stuff That Dreams Are Made Of follows in its footsteps with a selection of 46 classics of American traditional music recorded in the 1920's (on 2 CD's) - many of them are among the great iconic performances of the whole genre, including selections by legendary perfomers like Bukka White, Charley Patton, Dennis McGee, Eck Robertson, Ishman Bracey, Uncle Dave Macon, and many more. Included is a 54 page booklet that tracks the history of collecting old 78 records from its beginning in the 1920's through the '60's.

4.0 out of 5 stars ANOTHER GOOD COLLECTION OF EARLY AMERICAN MUSIC October 25, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is the second in an apparently on-going series from the folks at the Yazoo label. This new collection is similar to the first, with a number of rare tracks and some original, benchmark recordings of songs we've heard by other artists in the blues/country/folk/sacred genres. Basically, if you liked the first collection, you'll like this one as well.

There's a good mix of relatively well known artists-like Hambone Willie Newbern (sometimes spelled "Newborn"), Geeshie (sometimes spelled "Geechie") Wiley, Charley Patton, Ernest Stoneman, Robert Wilkins, Henry Thomas, Charlie Poole, Blind Willie Johnson, Blind Blake, and others. But alongside these artists are people like Alex Hood & His Railroad Boys, Appalachia Vagabond, Ashley's Melody Men, Mississippi Possum Hunters, Elder Golden P. Harris, and many others, who give this set it's real weight.

The sound varies of course, but as a whole is better than you'd think. This music is taken directly from original 78's, and thanks to remastering by Richard Nevins, this music sounds better than it has a right to. But this music is so good, so important, that any imperfections aren't much of an issue. There's a good combination of various genres of music, but what they all have in common is their sometimes haunting sound and feel. Much of this music is highly evocative of that period, and a number of these tunes are pretty essential for any good collection of "American music".

Picking highlights is pretty much impossible-everyone will have their favorites and/or hear a rarity that they didn't know existed. Just one example of the breadth of this set is the tune, "Irish Girl/Blue Breeches", by Packie Dolan & His Boys.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good old crusty music February 2, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I would not play this at a party, but it is amazing to hear songs from the dawn of recording. Folks sure had a different mind-set then.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oldies But Goodies May 17, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Nice collection of out-of-print and hard to find music from the 1920s, 1930, etc. It's a nice companion to "The Stuff that Dreams Are Made Of."
