Cluck Old Hen, A Barnyard Serenade 1926-1940
"Here's a collection of vintage music inspired by our favorite domestic fowl, the Chicken! Whether it's folk songs, double-entendre blues, old-time breakdowns, or tunes of Tin Pan Alley, this album is all about roosters, hens, chicks, pullets, and poultry of every description. You'll hear French-Canadian fiddler J.O. LaMadeleine cut loose with his foot-stomping 'Chicken Reel,' Memphis blues legend Frank Stokes sing 'Chicken You Can Roost Behind The Moon,' and Earl McDonald's Louisville Jug Band perform the surreal 'Under The Chicken Tree.' Teddy Bunn and Spencer Williams offer their sophisticated take on 'The Chicken And The Worm,' 'Honeyboy & Sassafras' deliver their comic 'Chicken Sermon,' and fiddler G.B. Grayson gives his classic rendition of the title song. Cluck Old Hen serves up all of this, and much more -- 24 tracks in all! The music of Cluck Old Hen has been expertly remastered for digital clarity, and the CD comes with a handsome 20-page, full-color booklet that features rare photographs and illustrations, detailed song descriptions, and a full discography."
