Editorial Reviews

Long Time Gone is a cross-section of the American folk music tradition, encompassing acoustic blues, ballads, old-time country, and one new original work. Several of these songs originate with the plaintive ballad singing of North Carolina singers Dillard Chandler and Berzilla Wallin. "Johnny Stiles" is a song about tragedy resulting from a log jam. "Jonestown" and "Heart Breakin' Blues" originate with Gus Cannon and the Jug Stompers, a popular jug band from Memphis in the early 20th century. "Sixteen Tons" comes from the work of George Davis. "Sad Alone" is an original work in the style of these earlier works. "Gastony," learned from the fine a capella singing of Dillard Chandler, sounds like a precursor to Leadbelly's "Midnight Special."

Dean Rathje: voice, guitar, dobro, banjo, piano, bass.
