The LEADER IN CLASSIC BLUEGRASS COLLECTIONS. New Heritage Collection
Historic MOUNTAIN BLUEGRASS MUSIC PERSERVED For FUTURE GENERATIONS !
25 Vintage Bluegrass & Mountain Classics. Several Tracks Never-Before-Available On CD
Continuing with our successful SOUND TRADITIONS Series, Rural Rhythm is proud to release this special new 25 Song Heritage Collection title, APPALACHIAN BLUEGRASS LEGACY 25 VINTAGE BLUEGRASS & MOUNTAIN CLASSICS which contains Historic Bluegrass Music preserved for FUTURE GENERATIONS and debuts many classic recorded songs Never-Before-Available on CD.
This new HERITAGE COLLECTION is part of the process by which these classic songs are handed on to FUTURE GENERATIONS as a part of our AMERICANA MUSIC LEGACY. The oldest of these songs crossed the ocean in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, but all of them have endured, and they re rendered here in performances that will endure. And thanks to this collection and others in the SOUND TRADITIONS series, future generations will be introduced to this music and hand it on to their children.
If we could somehow set the time machine for a dark hollow in Appalachia on a Saturday night some hundred or two hundred years ago, we might see a group of neighbors getting together by the coal oil lamps. Someone might arrive with a fiddle, and we might even hear a few of these songs. And thanks to this CD and the others in the SOUND TRADITIONS series, future generations will be introduced to this music and hand it on to their children. So many of these songs are priceless snapshots of the way we were and deserve no less.
Of late, Appalachia has been romanticized in movies, stories, and songs. Many songs like the ones on this collection are snapshots of life as it was lived in the most forgotten part of our nation. If folklorists had gone into the small towns, hill communities, and hollers throughout the southeast during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, we might understand how the music of the old and new worlds melted into one.
This new HERITAGE COLLECTION album contains 25 VINTAGE FAVORITES, (many lost but not forgotten through the years), including Mountain Dew , Rolling In My Sweet Baby s Arms , Old Joe Clark , Salty Dog Rag , Cotton Eyed Joe , Watermelon On The Vine , Grandfather s Clock , Black Mountain Rag , Six White Horses , Little White Washed Chimney , and Old Dan Tucker , by some of the biggest Bluegrass stars during the heyday of Bluegrass Music including MAC WISEMAN, RED SMILEY, HYLO BROWN, EARL TAYLOR, JIM McCALL, TATER TATE, RAYMOND FAIRCHILD, CURLY FOX, etc.
Each song was remastered from the original master tapes by Steve Hoffman, (a leading mastering engineer in the High End Audio market). The end results are some of the best sounding authentic Traditional Bluegrass music available today!
SOUND TRADITIONS: APPALCHIAN BLUEGRASS LEGACY, is a new HERITAGE COLLECTION on Rural Rhythm that takes the BEST OF song masters by BLUEGRASS LEGENDS that will be a must for listeners who cherish Traditional Bluegrass Music...And handed down to FURTURE GENERATIONS in this Appalachian Bluegrass Legacy Collection.
