Starting from the days of LPs, County Records has maintained the most extensive catalog of old-time re-issues from the “golden age” of commercially recorded rural music. Each record has been carefully chosen to include the very best in musical quality, sound quality and annotation. Amazingly, County’s entire catalog of compact disc re-issues is still in print, though this fact is likely to change after this sale.
Charlie Poole has always been the biggest seller in County’s catalog, and now that the fine Columbia boxed set is sold out, County’s three CHARLIE POOLE CDs (3501, 3508, and 3516) make up the best of this legendary musician’s legacy— just wonderful old time music! Other records that feature some of the giants of old-time music include CO-3509, the SKILLET LICKERS that features lots of the great fiddling of Clayton McMichen and Lowe Stokes, and CO-3505 UNCLE DAVE MACON (with some great cuts with the Fruit Jar Drinkers).
Another early old-time artist is ERNEST V. STONEMAN—his CO-3510 is all from rare Edison masters provided by the Edison Labs. And the wonderful work of G.B. GRAYSON & HENRY WHITTER is heard on Co-3517.
County’s highly respected regional surveys include superb 2-CD compilations featuring music from THE OZARKS, (Co- 3506, 3507) MISSISSIPPI (Co-3513, 3514), WEST VIRGINIA (Co-3518, 3519), TEXAS (Co-3524, 3525), and NASHVILLE (Co-3521, 3522). The states of Virginia (Co-3502) and Tennessee (Co-3511) are likewise celebrated with single CDs, and another is devoted to Southwest Virginia (Co-3523—Dock Boggs etc!).
DARBY & TARLTON, the popular Alabama duet, features the very best of this duo’s recorded repertoire (Co-3503). Other important individual artists to have an individual CD are the legendary Texas fiddler ECK ROBERTSON (Co-3515), CLARENCE “TOM” ASHLEY (Co-3520), and the great Tennessee fiddler FIDDLIN’ ARTHUR SMITH with a wonder- ful group of tunes and songs (Co-3526). THE ROANE COUNTY RAMBLERS—a great string band from East Tennes- see (Co-3530) highlight the great fiddling of Jimmy McCarroll.
Many classic tunes are included in two anthologies devoted to specific instruments in OLD TIME MOUNTAIN GUITAR (Co-3512), and OLD TIME MOUNTAIN BANJO (Co-3533), and similar compilations feature OLD TIME MOIUNTAIN BLUES (Co-3528) and HARD TIMES IN THE COUNTRY (Co-3527) as well as two records worth of very rare Sacred Harp music from Alabama. OLD TIME MOUNTAIN BALLADS (Co-3504) includes super cuts by artists like B.F. Shelton, Buell Kazee, Bliund Alfred Reed and Burnett & Rutherford.
THIS IS A WONDERFUL opportunity to fill in your library with some of these classic CDs, and at a real bargain price!
