So we hope you'll check it out when I get some sample tracks for you to hear. I think we have much more variety than we have had on our recordings in the past. Other songs not mentioned in the previous post include the Carter family song My Old Clinch Mt Home with switching lead and harmony as well as a fast clawhammer banjo version of their song There's No Hiding Place Down Here. We also have our Blue Sky Boys inspired version of Turn Your Radio On' as well as a fun 'mother' song called Mama, I'm Sick which has graphic culinary detail as described by 'her boy who went away'. We also have Don't Let My Ramblin Bother Your Mind and In the Blue Hills of Virginia from the repetoire of the Delmore Brothers.
Any one who is familiar with the names and musical style of our sources should be able to relate to these versions as we really don't change the words or melodies unless we have a good reason. As you can tell we like many songs for a variety of reasons. Inside the CD liner each track will have a description of where we got it and why we like it just like on our other recordings. Our new CD is an attempt to reflect the great variety of our repetoire and of early 'country' music. Professor Kinney Rorrer, our respected historian, friend and banjo picker is providing a paragraph or two to help enhance one's understanding of us and our music. I think I have come up with a cool photo for the front cover which has lots of details and a dichotomy as to the subject. You'll have to see it and to know what I am talking about.
We just hope we can get this CD out soon. I am working on the details in between my regular shop work and weekly visits to my Mom's overnight. Please check back for the sample songs and if you ever hear one played on the radio or on-line please make a request for that song or another one. It will help some of our obscure numbers to have a chance to be heard for their sake, first, and yours, second and ours, third. THANKS
