V.A. - HARRY SMITH'S ANTHOLOGY OF AMERICAN FOLK MUSIC. VOL.4: COUNTRY MUSIC & BLUEGRASS (2LP)


"The great LOST volume to Harry Smiths legendary Anthology of American Folk Music! Although these songs were compiled at the same time as the original volumes (famously released on Smithsonian Folkways in 1952), Volume 4: Country Music & Bluegrass remained mysteriously unissued for almost 50 years! Like the previous volumes these recordings come mostly from the late 20s and 30s, with the central focus being on old time country and bluegrass music by artists like the Monroe Brothers, the Carter Family, Robert Johnson, Bukka White, Leadbelly, Uncle Dave Macon, Sleepy John Estes and more! The importance of Harry Smith's work can not be overstated. Not only did he single-handedly save much of American folk music from extinction, but when he handed his record collection over to Smithsonian folkways in 1952, he opened the floodgates for the American folk revival of the following decade and beyond."
