Product Description

Includes the only existing film of Jimmie Rodgers as well as rare footage of Bob Wills' Texas Playboys, Ted Weems & His Orchestra, Bascom Lamar Lunceford, Otto Gray's Cowboys, Jack Jackson's Jazz Band, and other early music pioneers!

Amazon.com

Fans of early country and blues won't want to miss this compilation of newsreel footage from the '20s and '30s, capturing both the famous (Jimmie Rodgers, Bob Wills's Texas Playboys) and the anonymous. The 23 painstakingly compiled clips focus mostly on the musicians where they lived or played, at home, at barn dances, and on street corners. Some of the highlights include Georgia field hands, taking a break against a tree stump, harmonizing on "Mary Don't You Weep"; an anonymous spirited fiddler at a square dance playing "Waggoner"; and three newsreel clips of Jimmie Rodgers performing his songs, including "Waiting for a Train." The clips are presented, unfortunately, without any kind of introduction or context, but the individual snippets are still priceless slices of Americana. --Anne Hurley
