"Folklorist, teacher and performer Jimmie Driftwood wrote over 6000 songs during his extraordinary life. Presented here are his first 2 LPs for RCA Victor Records: Sings Newly Discovered Early American Folk Songs (1958) and The Wilderness Road (1959). Over-brimming with vernacular charm, tall tales and boundless spirit, Jimmie captures the traditional songs of the Ozark Mountains and presents them in authentic and enlightening renditions. Doubtless the best known song here would be 'Battle of New Orleans' closely followed by 'Tennessee Stud.' But beyond these numerous highlights await."
